In Cowboy Fast Draw, it's cool to show up with a cartridge box, At sanctioned shoots, it doesn't matter much, because the host supplies the ammunition and it's waiting for us at the firing line.
But, for the smaller shoots we bring our own ammo. It's one thing to walk up to the line with an MTM/Caseguard box, like I do. I have several and they're certainly durable. But, a cool little cartridge box is certainly a plus. It doesn't help your shooting, but it does help your "cool" factor. Ideally, a match is three rounds (Three up, three down. Go sit down.)
I had made Belle a small box that held 12 rounds, which should be sufficient, but she wanted more capacity, in case a bout went long. So, I started looking at some old Frankfort Arsenal boxes I had laying around, and decided to cut one down with the table saw.
I think she'll like this much better, and we'll call it version 2.0 of her cartridge box.
