I've been using mine now for over a week and love it. It took my bird boy all of 2 days to get the timing down with loading the gas and firing. Very consistent and loud. He likes it better then a starter pistol because he doesn't have to remember to reload the gun.
i agree with troy b . they sound great and a good concept but are very unreliable and cosistent. some type of new strapping needs updated and trigger needs looked at to be more consistent.
I was told by a couple of people who own these, that there is an elbow in the inside tube that if you remove it you will get a louder "bang" has anyone else removed this elbow??
We have not done that, but nor do I personally see a need for a louder bang than what they produce.
Thunder just announced a LOWER price on the T100 Shotgun Simulator.
Just thought everyone might want to know.
Pro's: Cheaper to use
Cons: Awkward to use
Problems when new gunners are using it
For personal use, once you get used to the timing issues and carry problems, it will work great. But, if you are using it for a club trial, with inexperienced gunners, it will pose lots of problems. No birds, inconsistant sound etc.
