    I've seen videos about them and read about them on their website. I'm thinking about getting one for a Yugo SKS. They can launch golf balls about 500 yards. Does anyone have one of these? Are they worth it of a waste of $45? Thanks

    Funny i just looked at one. It wasone of the items for sale with my redeemable amex rewards. I think its a waste. Shoot bullets not golf balls.

    If you think ammo is expensive, price golf balls and blanks.

    Ok. I think it's a cool novelty thing. I saw a video and they do a decent deal of damage. Blanks are hard to find but they sell those on the site too.

    My dad has hundreds of golf balls. A box of 20 is $6.50 on the site. So I have those bases covered

    Well it's just $45 for the thing. Post some videos when you use it. :)

    Sure will. Planning a schools-out shoot with some of my friends. We're gonna get some tanerite and we'll be lighting that range up!

    I just ran across someone talking about a coke can launcher for the sks. 300+ feet, sounds even better! Is there anywhere that still has them

    That sounds pretty neat. You can launch beers from end zone to end zone. :)

    My brother in law decided that I needed a golf ball launcher for my birthday last year , they gave me 60 rds of blanks and like 40 used golf balls, Talk about doing some major destruction , a golf ball will go through a steel machine shed wall . I have killer drives with it but it it also comes with one hell of a hook :D
    300 yards is no problem for it but dont expect it to shoot perfectly straight . I would like to try one that is rifled instead of a smooth bore and see if it helps keep them straight . Really its just a fun novelty item that I would never ever buy for myself but since it was a gift its still lots of fun .

    I was actually contemplating one. I was going through some ammo cans the other day and found a stash of about 400 5.56mm blanks. What better use for them?
