    209 Primer Pistol Starter Kit

    Steve Says:

    Using a .209 blank pistol is a great way to save a few bucks:
  • 209 shotgun primers are very inexpensive compared to other blanks.
  • 209 shotgun primers are pretty easy to find locally.

    We DO NOT sell the 209 primers since they are VERY expensive to ship because of additional handling fees. Make sure you can get them locally. Any good gun shop will have them for folks that reload shotgun shells.

    Double Action means that you can "cock" the starter pistol and fire it or you can pull the trigger without cocking the hammer. It will fire either way - that's Double Action.

    This blank pistol is our highest-quality primer pistol. This is what I use for my dog training.

    The Alfa 209 .32 caliber starters pistol is the best I've ever used. I'd suggest getting the kit for easier transportation and cleaning on the spot. I use a few drops of gun oil also. Great buy!

    been using this 209 alpha primer pistol for 4 years. It is the finest starter pistol on the market today bar none. shells are cheap easy to clean. If i wasnt nearing the end of my career i would buy another for a backup.

    209 training pistol.

    This is a quality piece. A bit pricey but worth it. Accompanying holster is also high quality. The 209 primer system is very economical to shoot and is surprisingly loud. Very happy with this purchase.

    All around great experience
    September 28, 2020
    I needed some extra help in purchasing a starter pistol for track and field. The people here were top notch in helping me get what I need. This Alfa 209 was exactly what I needed, and I used it to start my first cross country race this passed weekend. I had no issues with this pistol using it right out of the box, and I look forward to using this for many more races. Thanks so much!
    • Great customer service
    • Fast shipping
    • Holster was a little stiff but just needs some breaking in

    Literally thousand plus rounds fired and never a miss fire. Clean after each use and they'll last.
    • Easy to clean, cylinder locks on shell perfect.
    • Only 6 round cylinder, no big deal.

    Received the Alfa blank pistol much quicker than expected.. It is well build and works great. I've already used it in training and this past weekend at a field trial.
    Cannot be happier with this purchase.

    September 1, 2016
    Extremely well built. It's a bulky gun. Only real down side is you can't see how many rounds are spent without opening the cylinder and you need to take every primer out. Very difficult to take the spent primers out without taking all of them out of the cylinder.

    Get this 209 Alfa Pistol now and get busy training with a reliable blank pistol!!! I've made 2 mistakes by purchasing inferior blank pistols. When timing is everything the Alfa 209 comes through.

    So easy to use. Well made and isn't some flimsy piece that will fall apart after some use. We've put a bunch of primers through the pistol and everything is working as expected. A great tool for training and will definitely recommend this to others.

    Pistol is great. Easy to use. Great, consistent strikes every time. Holster takes a while to break in (still in the process), but very sturdy nonetheless. The ease of finding primers vs. blanks for me at my local Cabelas was a no brainer when choosing which Alfa pistol I was going to buy.

    Great pistol so far. Been through 3 Kimar pistols in the last year and finally decided to invest in one that will last.

    I have not had a chance to use it as TJ had surgery and no training for another week. A friend has this same blank pistol, and have used his many times, so should be no different. I liked it, so bought my own.

    Seems to be well made. Heavy framed 209 primer gun. Should do the job just fine.

    The kit is a little pricey, but leather holster is great as is the heft and balance of pistol. However, I did have a problem with 209 primers fitting the cylinder openings in two of the six openings. I sent an e-mail to Steve and there was an immediate response. New kit on the way with return label, and that is the five star part! Gun Dog Supply people are personable and a pleasure to deal with. David

    August 6, 2014
    Excellent product. I've used cheaper quality starter pistols in the past, and they tended to jam, and the trigger pulled very hard. The Alfa 209 is very high quality and should last a lifetime if properly cared for. Another nice feature is the cylinder. Holds 6 shots, The cheaper model I used previously only held 5.

    I have shot over 100 primers and no problems. I was looking for another brand that is no longer being made, but this Alfa looked similar, so I took a chance. It is an excellent and sturdy product.

    Great product. Well built. I clean it every 50-75 rounds. When I finally wear it out I will buy the same gun again.

    So far been just what I was looking for. No problems. Good trigger pull in single or double action. Feels like it should last and is a quality product. The holster is handy too.
