Looking for suggestions for using Bumper Boy launchers around/in water. It seems that dummies won't shoot well when wet. Any great ideas for drying them between uses?

Two suggestions...

- grab the wet bumper by its throw rope and spin your arm like a windmill. The centrifical force will get most of the water out.

- if you still have problems, carry a 12g shotgun cleaning jag and a piece of cloth to wipe them out.

Regards, Jason.

I carry a set of bumpers for each set of water marks and only use dry bumpers. Some of my older ones have cracks in the coating and become waterlogged. When I take 2 four shooters and plan on 2 sets of water marks where I will need all 8 bumpers per set up, I bring 16 bumpers.

I haven't noticed a problem with mine getting wet. I do spin them around, and haven't been using them very long.

Is a shotgun cleaning jag a wire brush? I've used the wire brush some, but am worried that maybe that is the wrong thing and I'm going to scrape up the inside of the tube.

Thanks, I'm appreciative of the information, and impressed that you came up with a picture that fast.
