Retriev-R-Trainer Hand Launcher – Hand Launcher Only

 Dummies NOT included.

While traditional bird and dummy launchers are  great training tools, they lack portability and can be inconvenient in certain training scenarios.  The Retriev-R-Trainer Hand Launcher is a convenient option for retriever training.

The Retriev-R-Trainer Hand Launcher is a handheld device first developed in 1965 that allows a hunter to launch dummies 100 – 200 feet (depending on factors such as dummy weight and material) while simultaneously sounding a gunshot report.  This lightweight and portable training tool has reduced recoil in comparison to other handheld launchers, especially when used in combination with aluminum insert dummies.  Otherwise, users should expect a recoil similar to when using 6 – 8 ounce bullets.  

The launcher can be operated with one hand, and reloading blanks is simple thanks to a self-closing thumb latch.  This feature maximizes the time and attention that can be focused on dog training.  The durable design – comprised of aluminum, stainless steel, and brass – ensures a quality product that withstands the rigors of gundog training.  All materials are sourced and manufactured in the USA.  Retriev-R-Trainer is so confident in the construction of this hand launcher, which has a cast aluminum head, machined aluminum barrel, stainless steel firing pin, and brass seat, that they offer a 3-year warranty on the product.

The possibilities are endless with this portable device, which launches both canvas and plastic dummies, as well as Dokken’s DeadFowl Launcher Dummies.
