    I ahve the box launcher w/remote and love it for upland training. Only wish it had a "Duck" audable instead of the beep.

    Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

    I received mine in the mail today...SN #29.

    I am very impressed w/ the design/construction. All fittings are tight and the operation is very smooth.

    I got a box of brown (power level 2) and green (power level 3) Ramset blanks at HD...they say Super X on them so I am guessing that they are made by Winchester. The brown will launch the bumper 20-30 yds w/ a 30 ft arch. The green will launch the bumper 50+yds w/ a high arch.

    I think the launcher has a lot of potential...ideas:
    > a carry bag to carry launcher, remote, bumpers, rounds, spare battery, etc. - another orange 5 gal bucket for now
    > more bumper options - black and white, rubber BB like, etc - i need to get some dokkens
    > a servo module vs rcvr setup so that you can use TT/Dogtra xmt/rcvr - could use one TT rcvr for 2 launchers w/ 2 cheap ($25) servo modules
    > a bag/cart/wagon setup to carry multiple launchers into the field
    > a way to gang multiple launchers together so that they can be transported and operated as a unit (like BB)

    Very pricey for a single shot.

    I just bought one last weekend and I love it. I also wish it had duck sound instead of beeper. it's a lot of fun and worth every penny.

    Just got two of them and do like them. Pros: quick to set up, very portable, shoots bumpers different trajectories and distances with different blanks. Cons: not able to shoot dead birds or dokkens, has a beep instead of duck call. I did buy the flasher bumpers to give a different look. The dogs aren't used to seeing a "throw" quite that far when shooting the yellow blanks which has been an adjustment.
