Transcript from Steve's Video:

We have two different 12 gauge blanks that folks like to use in dog training. They are very different products. Folks get a little confused when we're talking about them, so I'm going to show the difference between them.

This is a primed hull. It is a 12 gauge shotgun hull. But all it has in it is a primer. It will load into any 12 gauge shotgun. I prefer to use an over and under or a pump. It won't cycle a semiautomatic. You can actually fire them in a semiautomatic, but you're going to have to open the breach yourself and take them out. So, really, better use is going to be in a pump or in a single shot or an over and under.

Nowhere near as loud as any of the blanks that we sell. It's very quiet, actually. Lot of folks are using them in certain dog tests. They are a lot safer than some of the products out there. But it's still a primed hull. It's still going to be in a live shotgun. So you want to be real careful with them.

The shotgun is going to push that sound away, and so it's going to be much more pleasant on your ears and for your dog also, but it still gives the similar idea. Like I said, we refer to these as primed hulls, and that's all it is. There's nothing inside it. Sometimes they'll make them in different colors. I actually prefer them in clear. We don't always get them in clear. But I prefer them in clear because you can very easily tell that it's not a live round. They are very light also, so it's pretty obvious.

The next thing is a blank, or some folks refer to them as poppers. This is more like a shotgun shell. You've got your primer. You've got your powder. And then they've got a certain amount of stuff that's in them. And it varies depending on the manufacturer.

This is going to make a much bigger boom. They are also much, much, much more dangerous. I want to treat all of these in the respect that any sort of live round is going to deserve, but popper especially. They put off enough force that at a close range you can hurt somebody with them. You can kill a dog with them if you fired it at them. So gun safety here is the rule. Anytime you are using a gun you want to treat it like it's loaded and you want to point it in a safe direction.

These are not toys. They are not designed for props. We'll occasionally get folks from movie companies and theater productions wanting to use them. That's not what they are designed for. They are not designed to be used inside. They are not designed to be pointed at people. They are very dangerous and you want to treat them just like you would a live round.

It's going to make a much bigger boom. A lot of folks use these. Some folks call them blanks, some folks call them poppers. But it's an important part or the dog training. But you want to be real careful with them.

So primed hull is just a .209 primer, empty hull. Blank or a popper is going to have powder and it's going to have a little grit in there that's going to increase the volume. Two different dog training devices. Treat them with the respect they deserve.

Excellent first step in introducing guns and creating the gun , bird association. I don't know the decibel level but they seem quieter than a 22cal, more like a great big cap gun.

This gives me the option to use safely and with reduced sound when starting introduction to gun training. I also like that the hull is clear for easy identification.

Great for introducing dogs to gunfire. Not too loud...just right. Be sure to use either a pump, single shot or double gun, as the recoil is not near enough to work the action of an auto.

"The primer poppers are great!"

By: Andrew Clements From WA

The primer poppers are great! To me, they are slightly louder than real .22 bullets. So use these as a bridge between a .22 and 20 gauge blanks for sound training.
