Those that know me, know that I collect Colt AR-15’s and do a lot of research and photography of them. Unfortunately, my actual firearm space is relegated to a corner of the basement utility room in my house. In this corner, my gun safe takes up most of the space and holds my collection.
The safe is packed and if I want a rifle/carbine for research and it is in the back of the safe, I have to do this careful balancing act of leaning firearms against doors, walls, cabinets, etc. to get to the back part of the safe. It tends to be a real pain in the ass and impacts my motivation to dig into things sometimes. Here enters the idea for a ‘gun cart’.
The idea of getting a gun cart popped into my mind because I saw them in use at the Colt factory in 2019 and in my current job with CZ-USA. A decent gun cart would make it simple for me to empty some (or all) of my safe as needed. Additionally, a rack would enable them to sit securely without risk of falling over or otherwise getting damaged.
A quick Google search led me to the ‘Weapon Wrx’ rack shown in the image below.
I contacted the company and asked for a quote for the two-sided cart shown. I thought it looked like a great cart which would be very useful for my firearm space. After being bounced around to three different people in at least two different companies and about a 10 to 12 day wait, I finally received a quote for the cart shown. I about choked when I read that the price for the cart was $2900. That is insanity.
After sharing my dismay in a couple of personal social media spaces, a friend of mine recommended I take a look at Gallow Tech’s offering. So, I went to their website and checked it out.
My initial impression of the Gallow Tech product is encouraging. I’m hoping that it isn’t $3000 also. Here is some information from the website link that I provided.
Often people say “Just build your own rack” but I don’t want to spend time doing “arts n’ crafts”. If I have spare time, I want to be researching, photographing, or working on items in my collection…or posting. So, currently, there is zero chance of me building something. I sent Gallow Tech an email today asking about cost. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the Gallow Tech rack is reasonably priced.
