Each shotgun simulator is hand-crafted to be lightweight, durable, and simple to use.

Quick Take Aways:
1. Screw the gas cylinder onto the end of the Boom Gun being careful not to cross thread it.
2. Make sure the red button is in the unlock position - turn counter clockwise.
3. The thrower should be at a distance from the dog and handler.
4. Depress the red button about half way until you hear the gas flow from the cylinder into the chamber of the simulator.
5. Important: After approx. 6 or 7 seconds, continue to push the button until gas ignites. DO NOT lift off the button once you initiate the gas flow.
6. Do not obstruct the air flow cut out at the handheld section of the gun.
