. Family pet. Competes. This launcher works quite well so far. Easy to operate. I suggest you practice opening and closing it a few times before actually using it to get used to where to best position your hands (so as to not get your fingers pinched!)
I used the yellow loads, and the kickback is pretty hard. The stock offers little to no protection against the impact (I leaned it on my thigh and was limping for about an hour or so afterwards.) I would recommend using a bird bag slung over your shoulder, filled with canvas bumpers (or some other padding) and resting on your thigh and then putting the stock on your thigh to lessen the impact. I have not yet tried the red loads.
WEAR EAR PROTECTION!!!
If you hold with two hands, it also will help to absorb some of the impact.
