The first time I saw a Ranger Crew, I was standing next to a course owner.. I turned and said: "If I get a convertible Mini-Cooper, take the top off and put a gun rack in the back, can I take it on the course? It'll be about the same weight and smaller than that ranger.. And.. no trailer needed..

You (or me for that matter) in a mini-cooper; I'd pay to see that!


Lol.. They're actually a little more roomy than you'd think. Now the smart car is a total shoebox.

Maybe we can get the Rover dealer who's been at M&M at the last couple shoots to bring a Mini for us to test drive. I bet Anthony could open up some mud somewhere for us.

Buy a used Honda Fit or similar sized hatchback car. Take the doors off. Remove the back window glass (or unbolt the whole rear hatch). Replace tires with knobby ones. Put some cheap vinyl seat covers on.

Instant clays car not much bigger (if at all) than most large ATVs I see now, and probably a lot cheaper.


Ha ha. Except the Honda Fit will go 200,000+ miles and the typical utv will probably last less than 1/10 that. Depreciation cost per mile on a utv probably compares to a high end Ferrari. But, it's a horses for courses scenario.

Are there actual rules that define what is allowed on a Clays course? Not by the NSCA (I get that) but by some course owners? It strikes me that it's just a, "I'll know it when I see it" rule.

At my local club as long it's not a Tourney day you can use your personal vehicle to shoot the course with.Granted it's a small club but still nice to not have to drag the cart to go shoot. :)

Tires with a very aggressive tread pattern will usually get you flagged. Same with tracks. The noise factor with tracks should be enough itself but they can really tear up a cart path.

Several of the clubs here in South Carolina are exactly like that as well.

How did you mount your scabbards? Do you have a picture?

I'm a firm believer that the cart can't cost more than the shotgun it carries.

The cart shouldn't cost more than the vehicle that tows it!

On the front roof supports , facing forward.

The gear basket is heavy gauge and will hold a ton of stuff. It is a purpose built rack for the Pioneer.

Terry is close to that, but I think still clears it. Unless you include the trailer :lol:
