    G'Day Fella's,

    Well this one I built isn't strictly a "Shootin Buggy" but I suppose you could shoot out of it, if you could find the time?

    This is one of the Edge Products buggy's, you can build yourself from plans etc, that they sell!
    This is at it's Proto-Type stage, and I haven't had the time to dismantle it and get it Painted/Powder Coated.
    Before you go placing orders with them, there is a lot of work required, To Do This Properly!!!

    Doh!

      That was my 1968 HK with the 161 motor. Not fast but would go all day in all terrain. It survived one inundation in a flash flood that I didn't find out til after I bought it.

    Don't start me on bloody FLOODS . I have been through about 4 major floods and in one lost most of our possessions.
    I don't know what is wrong with this site but it's not typing well.

    This was a shooting buggy but it fell over doing some circle work -- left hand king pin broke --the rest is as they say history.
    The wheels today would be worth a new gun or two --1924 dodge flying four -- fitted with 24 inch Hupmobile wire wheels.
    Flying four is sort of right its the landing that was the problem

    Don’t poke the snake, walk around it and come back later with a double-barrelled shotgun and blow its [email protected]#!ing head off!.

    Australia in future, the outcome is the same, a bloody dictatorship run on the whims of a very few ego-centric pathological elitists.

    First decent shooting buggy was a suzuki bitzer [trying to find pics][found one]
    It was mostly zook, but had bits of other zooks, valiant, holden, VW, massey furguson and lots of bunnings hardware bolted, rivited, screwed, glued, welded and fibreglassed to it over its life.
    Poor old frankenzook had its limitations- not roadworthy- had to be trailered everywhere,
    couldnt carry much, and bits kept falling off faster than I could replace them. [industrial termites]

    The frankenzook was replaced by this ex US Postal service 1970's DJ5 JEEP,
    6 cylinder, 2 wheel drive, auto,LSD, sliding doors- that were locked open most of the time [on or off road]
    Flat floor in the front- [no sills to step over].
    Hatch in the roof for the spotlight operator, false floor between rear wheel arches for spot-kid to stand on.

    Passenger usually had the shotgun or .22, along with gate opening duties,
    spot-kid was also the designated carcase pickerupperer
    driver [me] usually had either the threeoh, .243, or .223 depending on the properties vermin.

    sold this around 12 years ago- wish I had kept it though.

      Great old buggies there.

      I wouldnt mind getting an electric buggy one day. The quiet running would be a bonus, though prob not as fun for general running about in.

        Who told you electric buggies are no fun?
        Here's 2 of mine.
        This one is a Chinese copy of an American EZ-GO TXT hunting buggy.


        My mate Bill on my EZ-GO RXV golf buggy on steroids. I have added roll bars to both buggies since these pics and camo seats.
