Remote Control Dummy Launcher

Post by Rascal » Mon Mar 09, 2015 7:46 am

Can anyone recommend a remote control multiple dummy launcher, I'm looking for something that is not too heavy to move around but which takes at least six dummies at a time...

Ta.

I could sell you my wife pretty cheaply. She easily carries six dummies at a time but the "not too heavy" thing has me a bit worried.

I reckon, Wullie, it's safe to say, your woman is not a member of this forum. :16: :lol:

Someone I know claims never to throw dummies for her dogs, but pays a local lad paper-round money to throw dummies for her.

It may sound a bit (insert your adjective of choice) but for £5 for a half hour, you could get 100 training sessions for the price of a remotecontrolled multi dummy launcher that you have to cart around, pre-load, recharge batteries, point in the right direction, swear at when it doesn't go off etc etc etc.

Plus there's the spin off benefits of supporting local youth economy and helping bring the next generation into the arena of field sports. Plus no upfront capital cost.

Just a thought as I have recently helped out at a training day where we had a four-way launcher and several single remote launchers. No small amount of work involved in setting the blessed things up in the first place, whereas with a roving dummy thrower with a bag of dummies, starting pistol and a pair of walky-talkies, there is much more flexibility to adapt to the conditions of the day.

Just a thought. Only trying to help.

I've got one like that Wullie, although mine has an extra widget. Not particularly portable or easy to hide in long grass, light cover, the edge of a wood etc. Wheezes and moans like hell if it's got to do repeat launches too....

After a bit of googling I found this....

But as it's very new I'm guessing not many people have tried it so no reviews that I could find...And no I haven't won the lottery before anyone asks, it is to be a "shared" purchase..
