    Have you looked into thunders? They make a 2 shooter.We got six 5 shooters and couldn`t be happier.Now if I could find remotes that are waterproof I`d have it made. Jim

    Trade the car in, and buy a pick-up truck. You're already past the point of needing a truck.

    I just ordered a thunder 200 the other day. I, much like you, train alone a lot due to my schedule. I have not received my launcher yet but am really looking forward to it. I know the owners and they would be more than happy to help you choose the right product for your training.

    You might want to look into a thunder 100. Don't know how far they'll launch a bumper, but seems very portable and easy to throw in your car. If anyone has any experience with these, I'd love to hear some feedback as well.

    i was drinking a lot better beer than ultra i can assure you that my good friend!!! but you did say i need a truck and i will agree with you.

    And copterdoc i would have a truck if i could afford to drive it to work 40miles to work and then 40miles back home.

    but not afraid to get it dirty at all and take it places most people wouldnt even think of taking a truck. i can tell you fwd is sometimes better than 4wd as long as i have a pulling tire on the ground im moving. 4wd is sometimes overrated

    You could always buy a trunk mounted bike rack to transport the wingers around.
