My friend with Parkinsons made a "stick gun" for me in order to train. I challenge any of you to stand 20 yards away and tell me if I have a Benelli O/U or a "stick gun" in my hands. The only thing it won't do, besides firing a popper or live shell, is "break down", and he's working on that!!!!

I have no problem with using a "fake gun" at a HT as long as the Judges watch how I or any other handler treats it. By using it we are all assured that NO ONE is gonna get hurt by the handler's ignorance, unless they use it as a club.

I like to think that we all know that gun safety is of primary importance. Unfortunately, we have NO control over who sends in an entry fee.

As an OVERSTATED opinion, what if John Hinckley walks up to the line, has a live shell in his pocket and loads it? Wouldn't you rather have him handed a "stick gun"???

What one has in their hands takes second place to what the dogs do.
