Wanted to share my experience recently with a gun stand with hooks at a Master hunt test.
My dog hooked his eyelid on the gun stand hook as he came down from a jump in his excitement heading to the line to run a blind. We where very fortunate he was not blinded. Only $1,400 of medical bills, surgery, no training for 2 weeks. Please watch out for these hooks on gun stands!

Ouch, very lucky he did not lose his sight. I have never seen a gun stand like that.

I will certainly look at Gun Stands a lot closer now to see if they have the deadly hooks or not! I had not seen them before either, at least not that I recall!

Sorry about your dog but realize that these are a lot more common than you think. I have seen these at virtually every HRC club I have been to and they are what I have on my truck. The hook is for holding a bag of poppers.
