    Default Gun Rack

    Has anyone mounted a gun rack or scabbard to their fold down ROPS?

    I was thinking about a pick-up truck style gun rack across the ROPS and figured it could serve dual duty.

    One use would be to carry a gun for plinking.

    The other use for carrying long handled shovels, rakes, etc.

    It seems like no matter what I do with my tractors, I always end up making multiple trips becuase I can't carry everything I need to get a job done. If there is an implement on the 3pt I can't bring everything in a wagon behind me, etc.

    If anyone has put a gun rack or tool rack on the ROPS I would love to see pictures.

    That's kind of what I was thinking, Bob. But, the rack would have to hold the rifle really snug. The ones I've seen didn't look like they would hold it, but I could be wrong.

    Velcro wraps might help? Or rubber bungee cords? Neither would scratch a rifle stock. And both would probably hold a shovel just as easily.

    How about the kind that go on the handle bars of a 4 wheeler ATV. I don't have that set up but I have seen them. They hold the gun safe and secure.

    I've seen those that go on the ATV's but those are basically scabbord type (at least the one's I've seen) and I would not want that kind because I'd also like to throw a shovel or rake in the rack if needed. A shovel wouldn't fit in a scabbord style gun rack. My idea was as a double duty gun and or shovel rack. Others may only want to carry a gun and could probably use that type of rack.

    And for those who just need shovel racks- how about a length of pvc pipe just a bit off horizontal so that the shovel doesn't fall out? Two interlocking pipe clamps on each side to hold the pipe?

    I thought about using PVC tube, but I have one of the crooked handle rakes, it would not fit inside the PVC because of the bend in the handle. Also, PVC tube would elminate the ability to carry a short handle shovel that has a "D" grip handle.

    If I only wanted a straight long handle tool carrier, a pipe would do the trick.

    That's the one I'd use. They are just a vinyl coated Y with a rubber strap to secure the gun.

    A gun rack on a tractor, hmmm never gave that too much thought before this post. Guess it would work just don't let the neighbors see you threating the vegetable garden with the shotgun. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
