I'm thinking of building a range box and was wondering if anyone out there has any input or even some pics of their own designs?
The cypress was from a recycled bee hive top and the box roughly measures 21" long 9" wide and 8" high. Hated to throw the wood away, the hive body was probably 50 years old. The shoulder strap was a must, one shoot I go to has a good hike to get to the range. I'm working on a small cart to start hauling stuff with, getting old is a pain. Need to clean out the box next, don't need a pound or more of spent flints and range lead sitting in it.
You might want to decide first, on what you want INSIDE the box, and then decide it's size and design. I've seen boxes that double as a loading stand for the shooter who is avidly a pistol shooter. Sometimes folks want them wooden so that they can have them in a living-history event camp in plain view, without offending the rules. Some are all around boxes that will service a bunch of different guns, and some are small, soft briefcase like bags that are set up for only one gun.Thank you much for the insights and pics. I'll keep you posted as mine evolves
He probably would have called it a "box".Now obviously he would not call it a range box but more of a shooters box.
