Just finished it up in time for a clay shoot this weekend. I might not be the envy of the course, but it's a far sight better than carrying my gear around. Total investment is under $70. The tournament went well. Lots of mud and the stroller worked like a champ!

In my excitement to mount the gun racks I didn't take into account that the lower mounts would keep the stroller from folding up, and that is UNSAT! (see initial post) So, I cut to proper length this 2x4 and bought some different mounts. Hard part was mounting it to the frame. The top ones hold it, the bottom ones just need to keep the muzzle out of the dirt. I'm going to put some finishing details on it, paint it, and maybe add some swag. And it will still fold.

My usual shooting buddy wasn't able to come break clays last weekend. He has a nice stroller turned gun cart which we always use. After a few hours of carrying all of my own junk around I decided I need a cart too.
A friend made me a killer deal on this jogging stroller. I bought ATV gun racks at the local store (Kolpin offset). I'm almost as excited as if I got a new gun!

A birthday present to myself. I have been carrying a pistol AIWB for 4 years now in a CCC Shaggy. Solid holster but I have been looking for other options recently. The Raven Concealment - Eidolon looks to be amazing. I have yet to read a bad review. I just put it together and haven't even put it on my belt yet. Once I get some miles on it I'll do another post, but as of right now this is the coolest holster I've ever seen!

My 30" 870 barrel came with a single silver bead. HiViz is a great option and they have a ton of choices if you're looking for fiber optic. Be careful with 870's to make sure yours is the screw in type and not pressed in. If it's pressed it needs to be cut off then drilled/tapped. This particular version will only illuminate if your head is looking straight down the stock. I would like to have a mid-bead if I ever get around to it.

I had a quick second to shoot the 870 for a pattern. Not the proper 30" target, but it was 30 yards with an improved cylinder choke. It definitely shoots high with the Magpul stock. I'm going to switch back to the factory forearm, it was beating up my index finger after a few shells.
