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.




  • BEST-SELLER.

    The starter pistol is as described - well made. I expect to get many years of service from it.
    The leather holster exceeded my expectations! The quality, craftsmanship, and finish are excellent.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
