    Very loud. Best to use ear muffs. No problems ejecting empties. I tried a load meant for the dummy launcher. Won't do that again.

    I'm a Starter for Track and Field races, and that's the primary use of my Alfa .22 caliber blank starter. I just put 150 blanks through it, July 16, 2016, and it worked flawlessly. I used BOTH, crimped and blank cartridges, and both worked great. One note, if you use 'crimps' you'll need to point the barrel down, or horizontal to the ground to prevent the crimps from moving. I gave it '4-Stars' because I've only used it once. However, after cleaning it, I don't expect any problems and look forward to using in the upcoming track seasons.

    Arrived ready to go. I took it out of the box, read the instructions, loaded it and began using it with ducks to work with my dog. Easy to load/unload. Came with a box of blanks and a cleaning brush.

    This has to be the best in quality blank starter pistols for track and field. The .22 pistols using #3 Ramsets is louder than the .32 gun. I will order the Alpha .32 within the next 4 weeks.

    The gun is very stiff, probably because it is new. Two of the chambers were very tight loading blanks and real hard to eject. I cleaned, brushed, and oiled moving parts thoroughly and am expecting better results next time out. It's too popular of a gun to be bad.

    The starter gun is really easy to load and use just like a real revolver. I like the color of the handle because it makes it easy to find in my bag or in the field.

    I am a high school track and field official, I bought the Alpha because I heard one fired at a meet recently and most starters use a 22 caliber pistol from H and R which is no longer in business. The Alpha is much louder than the H and R. I'm extremely pleased with the gun. Thank you, Dennis Thibeault.

    I work for one of the largest firearms manufacturers in the U.S. and I have to tell you I'm impressed. The fit and finish on this revolver are very nice. In fact the fit is so good on mine that the cylinder stop doesnt even leave a trace line on the cylinder. The gun has a nice heft to it and not only does it look like the real thing but it feels like the real thing. I especially like the both the lanyard ring and the bright orange grip, two very useful features. The grip is ergonomic, fills my hand and is very comfortable. The bright orange color is a huge plus in todays world by giving a visual indication that this 'may not' be the real deal. This is the new gold standard in blank firing revolvers and frankly leaves the very highly sought after H and R and NEF blank firing revolvers in the dust. The $200 price tag may seem a little pricey to some but this is one of those instances where you get what you pay for. In fact if you can even find a NEF or a HR in decent enough shape that you would want to own, try getting one for $200. To say that I'm pleased with this purchase would be an understatement!

    I have only used this one time, but it performed well. Had some trouble finding a holster. Trigger guard is oversized. It's a good thing for a glove hand but not a major problem either way. Ended up using a Judge holster. Report was much better than previous pistol. Outlet on top of the barrel works great, just need to be careful as flames do show.

    The Alfa is awesome for training dogs. My older dog is a 3 year old female. She kept wanting to break on the shot last year. This will allow me to pop off several rounds, so I can simulate a hunting situation and stop her from breaking. I will also use it to train two of her pups when I start introducing them to the gun.
