    Thumbs up Very excited- just ordered a bunch of replacement equipment...

    Well, maybe not a *bunch* but a remote transmitter with 3 releases for my SOG wingers and a 2-dog e-collar system to go with the 2 used e-collars I have that were sent by some very nice folks here.

    Now I need to replace my starter pistol. I had an NEF .22 that I loved... I have heard they're discontinued. I have read rave reviews on the GunX .32 here on RTF. Can you get .32 blanks at The Home Depot?

    The .32 blanks are very expensive.(about .75 cents ea.) Get the Gun-X in 209 primer. Those are about .03 cents ea.

    I use the Gun X in 209 primer. Have shot about 6000 primers through it with no problems. Another fellow in my training group uses the 32 model. It works great as well, but he sometimes has issues finding them.

    Cool that you're getting new equipment. Love that feeling and thinking about all the new possibilities it will make possible.

    Right now, I'm just happy that my bird boy (hubbs) finally got a white coat and is learning the instructions for drills from Carol Cassity's book! He did a better job than my two launchers when trying to pull off the Creamsicle drill!

    Oh Jen you are so lucky I'm not into the Keystone Light today. I could make big girls blush with this one. Probably even 2 tall and Pals.

    First: Good for you Montview!! I know how crappy it was to have your stuff stolen.

    Second: At the risk of being "inane" I really must ask "What flavor?" I am particular, my creamsicles must be just right. Its important that they be not too tart nor too sweet. Duk-you could try. But if you notice my special hat that I wear, in combination with the ho boots, it would be a hard task. Not sure you are up for the challenge.

    Norse regards,
