They are for real and they do work.  You'll get about 500 yards off an SKS.  We have them in stock along with the 7.62x39 blanks.  Call me at (724)825-2919 if you want to order.  With several hundred shipped and no returns or complaints, I'd say everyone likes them.

   I am a distributor for the Bloom Automatic golf ball launchers at SW Ohio area gun shows, but was out of them at the shoot.  If you wish one right away I would recommend going straight to the Bloom Automatic web site - he's a great guy to deal with!  Glad you had fun with it, I have a blast!  We shot quite a few more after you left...

Hey, Vince, I just talked to you on the phone and ordered one of your launchers and a couple of boxes of blanks.  I can hardly wait to get it and try it out!  We have a bunch of family and friends coming in for the Labor Day weekend, a couple of 'em have SKS's, and I'm thinking that they'll be all over any new toy that goes bang!  I foresee some serious accuacy contests into 55 gallon drums at 400 yards.

Bonesaw,

I bought one from Vince, and he delivered on time for the holiday weekend!

We had 7 of the family clan working the new toy, from age 7 to age 68.  Consensus was that the launcher was a solid "10" in the fun factor on a 1-10 scale, 10 being the highest.  It was also a "1" on issues of practicality and accuracy!  Really wasn't much in the terms of practicality and accuracy, but, man, did we have a great time playing around with it.  We went through 40 golf balls and 40 blanks real fast.  Didn't have a 500 yard range to test out the ultimate range, but did discover that it gave us 350 on a regular basis.  We found that a bit of a "patch" around the golf ball helped a bit in accuracy.  We started with a single square of toilet paper; then went to 2 squares; then a 12 gauge shotgun cleaning patch.  All the patches improved the accuracy, and the 12 gauge patch was the most effective.

We're looking forward to the next rendezvous with 100 blanks and golf balls to play round with.
