    Try Lion country supply. Just box 25,000 rounds of fiochi for $12.95 per box of 25.

    They were out of stock when I bought test box, bit as soon as I verified, I ordered the rest and got the earlier this week.

    Good luck finding them as they are scarce.

    Our club has decided to purchase the Thunder noise makers (may not have the name right). They are equivalent to about one case of poppers and are also safe for the bird boys. They make as loud a noise too. They use a MAPP gas canister which is good for a ton of rounds. They are small enough that a kid can have it on his shoulder and shoot and throw.

    Macks has been out of the Kents poppers for the past 6 months. I am on their email about status list, and check once a week. At that price, I have a feeling they will not be getting them back in, since every other place is selling them for closer to $20 per box.

    Better do a lot of training with the kids on having them primed and ready to roll. I judged a trial a few weeks ago that was using them and we had numerous no-birds because the kids would forget to prime the popper. Then you have the delay, which is too long if the dog is staring right at it, or worse trying to decide where to look.

    With experienced hands... Great. New kids, not so much.

    Poppers or primer loads. I use primer loads because the are not as loud as poppers and are safer. Dogs afield has a good price.
