+ 1. Does the Magnet Gun Caddy work with double barrel shot guns?
Yes. It works with both over-under and side by side. For side by side barrels, simply turn the gun 90 degrees so that it's resting "sideways" in the MGC.
+ 2. Does the Magnet Gun Caddy work with vented barrels?
Yes. The holder is designed to accommodate ventened or non-vented barrels.
+ 3. Do I need different Magnet Gun Caddy sizes for my various gauge guns?
No. The flexable holding device will accommodate most long barrel guns.
While the MGC was designed for use with a wide range of barrel sizes, larger sizes like 12 or 10 gauge may require a little break-in period for one-handed use. You can speed up the break-in time by working the foam portion with your hands or slipping it on and off the barrel. Eventually you will be able to slip the gun in and remove it from the MGC with just one hand. In the mean time you can just use your thumb to push against one side of the foam as you pull the barrel from the holder.
+ 4. Does the Magnet Gun Caddy hold the gun off the ground?
No. It is designed to support the gun in an upright position with the stock resting on the ground.
+ 5. Do I have to remove the Magnet Gun Caddy from the car when driving from field to field?
No. The magnet is plenty strong to hold the MGC on you car even as you drive at highway speeds. It is a matter of personal preference whether or not you remove it or leave it on your car.
Keep in mind that if you are driving down narrow dirt roads (where branches may come in contact with your car and MGC you should remove the MGC so it is not knocked off your car by a branch.
In very muddy conditions it is also possible that chunks of mud could be kicked up off your tires and hit the MGC hard enough to knock it off.
Bottom line is be aware of the conditions to determine whether you leave it on or off...if in doubt just drop it in your vest pocket!
+ 6. I've heard that it is illegal to rest your gun against a car in states like Wisconsin – is that true?
No. It is not illegal to rest an UNLOADED gun against a vehicle.
More: In WI it is illegal to set your gun "IN or ON TOP" of your vehicle unless it is cased. The key is it must be unloaded to be used with the MGC and leaned against your vehicle. This point has been verified and can be read in the state statute:
Wisconsin State Statute - Section 167.31(4) (d):
(d) Subsection (2) (b) does not prohibit a person from leaning an unloaded firearm against a vehicle.
You should Never rest a loaded gun against a vehicle (with or without the MGC).
+ 7. Will the Magnet Gun Caddy scratch my car?
No. The MGC utilizes a soft high-energy magnet. Just make sure to wipe a small area clean (as big as the magnet - your hand or glove usually works fine) to place the MGC.
+ 8. Do you sell the Magnet Gun Caddy for multiple guns?
No. After extensive field and design testing, several issues directed us to a single gun design. The first was that it needed to be small and light enough to fit in your pocket to make it practical and the most convenient. Secondly, we found that multiple hunters riding in one car tend to need their "own space" – typically outside the door in which they were sitting. It quickly became apparent that a single gun design for individual gun use was much more convenient than having to go to one spot on the car with multiple guns. The single gun design also provides much more flexibility as far as where it can be placed on the car.
