    Default Hillmann Seminar or Gunners Up Launchers

    OK first off I'm new to the sport and I have limited funds. I have the Hillmann puppy video and need to start getting some equipment. I was thinking about attending the Hillmann Seminar in March but not sure which if the launcher would be a better investment.

    Please give me your opinion.

    Thanks,

    Milam

    Go to the seminar, there is no better investment than education.

    seminar -
    much better to know the RIGHT way to train than to have equipment that gets used in a not so efficient way.

    I'll be odd man out. One can certainly make an argument for either though. Personally I'd watch the video and buy the equipement.

    I would attend the seminar and find a training group. Once you get into the training group then you will find what equipment you really need!
    ENJOY THE JOURNEY!!!

    Seminar is the best bet!! by far for your pup. Loads of time to get a launcher. You can teach your dog to do stand alones! if you follow Hillman "sit" advice!

    Go to the seminar. The equipment will always be there to buy next time the money is available. Plus you can build homemade wingers for lots cheaper.
