    Default Option For Bumper Boy

    Having used bumper boys for a number of years and as everyone knows, not being able to get service. I keep checking via the web to see if someone has taken over. I finally found someone with a similar product, Seems pricey but Ive had mine going on 20 years.

    I found a product out of the UK, cannot post links as of yet. Sporting Saint GunDog Training equipment

    I have been trying to start a dialogue with them and still waiting on a response.

    Also am curious if anyone has tried one of these unit. The electronics appear to be simplified and straight forward when compared to the bumper boy.

    There are quite a few differences, and the electronics are so very different, Im not sure a lawsuit is possible. Also, not sure anyone took over the bumper boy line. There were a bunch of lawsuits scattering around mostly with the electronics side and I think one about the launcher mechanism.

    You can use the nail gun crimp loads at Home Depot or Lowe's they're about six bucks a box of 100
