One of the tabs that holds the DVDs in the case is broken. It was that way when I got the set. Doesn't hurt the DVDs.

Re: Starter Gun

I think a good used launcher is harder to find then the pistols. From an amateur one dog at a time perspective, a blank gun is a waste of cash, you use it a bit at gun intro, then you transition to shotgun and a bit again at steady to shot before you transition to shotgun if at all.

Re: Launcher solenoid

In the beginning I tried using solenoids like the one you are using. I found the travel of the door lock actuator arm to be too short to launch reliably, that is why I changed to servos. The servos work OK, they have a short lag time and if you hold the trigger button too long you can strip a servo....
