    I use Gunner’s Up stick men. They have units that you can use as standout guns and make a manual reload retired gun. They are very reasonably priced and easy to set up. For the cover I use old long sleeve white “T” shirts. I buy a cheap king size pillow case and sew it into the bottom of the “T” shirt. Add a short piece of 1” PVC pipe in the bottom of the pillow case for weight. This makes very tall and cheap gunner. The arms to the “T” shirt will wave in the wind for a little real action at each station. Mine are at least 10 years old and are in good shape still.

    Hope you had a great training day!

    I've got a couple that I bought from Evan Graham that work nicely, and then I have 3 others that are simply a plastic fence post with some PVC that I connect to the top so it looks like a "T". Then simply hang the white jacket onto that.

    Made mine from pillow cases. Hang them on the launchers. Also devised a retired gun system that i can un-retire with a simple push of a button on a remote. good to about 300 yds. Works great and a lot less expensive than buying.

    Few feet of PVC, a PVC cap, the longest bolt w/ a nut you can find, a PVC "T" and you got a nice and cheap gunner... The poles also serve as nice lining poles too and if you want orange, just take that bright orange duck take to them. I did mine in 3/4" so the aren't floppy. If you want to get really fancy, put two caps back to back with the bolt thru them. Don't glue the cap on the pole and you can reverse the bolt in the pole for storage.

    Five of these are made by using a hooded painter suit drapped on two laminated (duct taped together) electric fence posts. Using two provides the needed height. The plastic "hooks" on the posts provide holders to keep the arms from flapping too much. The "extra stick bunny" was a gift from an somwhat taunting jokester in the HRC club I belonged to. They are over nine years old.

    Once in awhile I take a suit off to use while goose hunting in snow covered corn fields.

    I use Butch Green's stickmen. Love mine b/c they are one piece, nothing to misplace.
