    Default Do i lose cool points or street cred for this???

    I saw this product line at the Shot Show and HAD TO HAVE ONE!

    Ended up making a small order with the manufacturer to get the Shot Show discounts and the shipment arrived last week.

    I immediately shot the dummy launcher across the office and broke a plastic paper tray... took it out back to open it up and it's awesome! It really flings that bumper! Now before the bashing begins, i got this for the old grumpy retired macho choco dawg who could use some backyard exercise. But it would work on marks too. lol

    I haven't tried the clay disk launcher yet, but i will on Wednesday.

    I didn't get the golf club tennis ball launcher because i would hate to screw up a perfectly below average golf swing.

    That only works if your dogs haven't gotten a hold of your bumpers on occasion and chewed the ends off where the hole is... LOL Looks like fun.

    I could see using this in places where the report of gunfire or a .22 blank in a retriever trainer dummy launcher is not appropriate. I could also see someone like my wife using it...when she hand throws a bumper by the cord, nobody knows where it is going...it could be a worm burner or come down on her head or behind her.

    Funny you said this but I thought the same thing…then after I thought about it…that thing looks like a sure trip to the dentist.

    One of our friends has the clay launer, and it works pretty darn good.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    I think I may have to get one of those as well. How much are the extra bumpers?
