The Lucky Launcher 2 is perfect for folks that want an easy-to-fire, one-handed launcher. Unlike other handheld launchers, the Lucky Launcher can be cocked and fired one-handed. It's great if you are working by yourself with a younger dog.
The Lucky Launcher should be fired off your thigh, not off your shoulder. This helps get the perfect height and allow the recoil to be better absorbed.

This is the new Lucky Launcher. The folks at Retriever Trainer have made a couple of changes to it, making it an easier product to use. Youíll notice the stock comes in two parts now. So, going to attach it together. This allows you to carry it in something smaller. When you buy it as the kit, you get a case that comes with it. So itís easy to break down and you can carry it inside the case.
The Lucky Launcher is one of my favorite dummy launchers. It works off of 22 power loads just like the Retriever Trainer. Open it up, put your loads in here. Close it up to fire it. Attach your dummy and then you cock it. And youíve got a pistol grip that allows you to fire it when you are ready.
Whatís great about the Lucky Launcher is that it allows one-handed operation. When you are working with younger dogs, this can come in handy. It just allows you to have that extra hand in case you need it, unlike the Retriever Trainer, which requires two hands to operate. The Lucky Launcher, you can cock it and then fire when ready.
One of the things I like to point out about the Lucky Launcher is that while this may look like a shoulder stock, itís generally not recommended that you fire it that way. You can, but the kick on it is a little much for most people. Even though itís got a little padding here, I just donít recommend it.
Itís actually designed to be fired off of your thigh. So then you angle it whichever way you need to. Having it as a one-handed operation comes in real handy, especially when you are working with younger dogs. It just gives you that option in case you need to do something else with that other hand.
This is the Lucky Launcher kit. It comes with a hard-shell case, two dummies, a box of loads, plus a gun cleaning kit. We sell it several other ways. You can buy it as a set, which is just going to be the launcher, dummy, and a box of loads. And then you can buy the Lucky Launcher by itself. This version of it I like just from the standpoint that itís easy to break apart. Itís going to be a little easier to keep with you.
The Lucky Launcher 2. Itís a great dummy launcher for folks that are looking for a high-end launcher.
