The Thunder 200 2-shot remote launcher from Thunder Equipment is one of the smallest, most economical remote launching systems on the market. It features all the same great functionality and durability as the Thunder 500 and Thunder 1000 models at a lower price. This unit is perfect for the weekend trainer or avid hunter that wants to get their dogs tuned up for the upcoming season. The T200 requires no cleaning. Its construction is solid sheet, powder-coated aluminum built to withstand years of use.

The system is much easier to transport in a vehicle than other training options and its ability to shoot multiple shots will advance your dog's training quickly. Multiple shots aid in helping your dogs to see, find and remember fallen objects. Remotely launch 2 dummies using either the Tri-Tronics Pro Control or Dogtra remote release electronics (sold separately).

The Thunder Equipment Thunder 200 dummy launcher is powered by MAPP gas. When not in use, the mounting legs are contained inside the body of the launcher itself, so there are no worries about where to store them or possible damage. The Thunder 200 includes 2 white bumpers with removable black bands.

  • Approximate Size: 9" x 9" x 18"
  • Approximate Weight: 17 pounds
  • Launcher uses a MAPP gas cylinder and 8 "AA" batteries (not included) to operate
  • Remote release receiver can be attached to outer housing using Velcro or Receiver Lok (not included)

    Best money I have spent, beside a Pro Trainer
    July 15, 2020
    Got this about a month ago now and the delivery was incredible. Got a call from the Gun Dog SUpply to verify that I had gotten the remote control and that the launch would be shipped in another few weeks and it came 2 weeks after the remote and it is worth every penny.
    When I pick this thing up now both my labs know what time it is!!!!!!!!!!! I have sent both dogs off to training for 3-4 months and this launcher has proven vaulable for Anchor and Skye's training. My wife thought is was going to be a wasted but after a week of training she now sees the value in the launcher.

    Thanks Steve and Gun Dog Supply you are the best and I will reccommend you to everything hunter that I know and meet.

    God Bless

    ProsYou can setup realistic scenarios and train by yourself and watch your dog and not have to worry about them creeping.
    ConsDo not have any right now, maybe the MAPP Gas but its not expensive.
