We have been training gun dogs for trials, hunt test and hunters for 30 years and have used every dummy launcher ever made. Thunder launchers are the very best we have owned.
We use the Thunder-500 and Thunder-1000 models and they're a snap to setup and load. They produce consistent high throws with their bumpers and they are loud enough sound to be heard at long distances.
We also use the Thunder Shotgun Simulator. It's very easy, safe, and since they don't use blanks, we save a lot of money. It's compact and economical but is still loud enough to be heard by dogs at over 300 yards.
Ruggedness, reliability, affordability, and 5-star service is why I recommend Thunder Equipment products for the professional or amateur who is serious on getting things done.
