One of the companys that I contacted for a price on a launcher said they stopped selling them due to reliabilty issues. I thought most of the problems went away when Etch-Mark sold the company. Can you who are owner/users of the Thunder 500 please let me know how they perform for you? What, if any, are the problems you have experienced. Thanks in advance for your help!

Black Hollows, I'm extremely interested in your launchers. Where would you be shipping them from? Can you give me first refusal on them? What type of payment can you recieve?

You might want to check and make sure that particular retailer is listed as an authorized dealer for Thunder Equipment products on their website.. Some people are selling without authorization for other reasons..

I have 3 of the old 4 shooters and love them. I also have 2 of the new 5 shooters and they donít work as well. The batteries and wiring are just not as reliable. Would purchase old 4's any time.
