Transcript from Steve's Video:

We're looking at the Alpha blank pistols. Alpha is a large-frame blank pistol. It's built on an actual gun frame, so it's got a lot of weight to it, a lot of feel. One of my favorite things about all the Alphas is that they come with orange handles, which makes them easy to find when you drop them in the field. They've also got the orange plug, which is required on a blank pistol.

Alpha is a swing-out cylinder. What that means is you have a button to press. And when you open it up it stays in the cylinder. It has an ejector so that when your blanks are out you can fire them out. Comes with a lanyard ring, which I highly recommend that you strap it to yourself once it's in your holster. This is a large frame pistol. It will fit any of our large frame holsters.

The Alpha comes in three different calibers. This is the .22 caliber. This is the .209 primer. And this is the .32 caliber.

I prefer the .22 because you have three different volumes of blanks that you can use. You can use the small crimp blanks. You can use a medium crimp. And then you can use the loud Winchester .22 short blanks. So that gives you an increase in volume, which is great when you are working with a puppy.

The .209 is probably the most popular we sell, and that's got to do with the price of the blanks. .22 caliber blanks are a little on the expensive side as far as per shot, where .209 primers are a good bit cheaper. The downside of .209 primers is that they are harder to come by because they cannot easily be shipped. So if you are getting a .209 pistol, you need to make sure that you can buy the primers locally. It's just a standard shotgun primer. I prefer CCI's. Most gun stores are going to have them, places that specialize in reloading.

.32 is the least used of the ones that we sell, and a lot of that has to do with the blanks. They are for track and field and for field trials. Certain pointing dog field trials require a .32 caliber blank. I generally do not recommend them for folks that are dog training. The blanks are incredibly expensive.

All three of the Alpha pistols are what are called double action pistols. What double action means is that you can either cock the pistol and then fire it or you can fire it without cocking it.

All of the Alphas come with a hard-shell case. They also come with a cleaning rod. Highly recommend that you keep your blank pistols clean. Typically, if we see problems with them it's folks that just fire them all the time and never bother to clean them off. Any standard gun solvent is going to take care of them. It also depends on the blanks that you fire. The .22 shots are a very dirty blank and they require that you clean it on a more regular basis.

I switch back and forth. With young puppies I use a .22 caliber because I can get that quiet. With older dogs I use a .209. Most people are not going to want that. So a lot of it depends on what you are doing. If you are using a .209 with puppies you just want to back off from them a good bit more and gradually introduce them to the gunfire. I would not take a .209 primer. A .209 primer is almost as loud as a .22 short. It might be as loud as a .22 short. For most people, the .22 is really the way to go. It just depends on how many blanks you are firing.

These pistols cover all of our upland and retriever folks. And really good for rabbit hunters, coon hunters. Anybody that's going to be shooting around a dog, they need to gradually introduce the sound of gunfire to them. And blank pistols are the best way to do that. They're much safer than using an actual load. So you want to gradually introduce gunfire. We've got a couple articles on the website about that.

"Far better quality than any other blank pistols I have used in the past. I use it training Police and Protection Sport dogs, so it sees year round use."

Excellent quality and reliability. Far better quality than any other blank pistols I have used in the past. I use it training Police and Protection Sport dogs, so it sees year round use.

I like the ability to use quieter crimps for younger dogs, and graduate to louder loads for more experienced dogs.

I have purchased several products from Gun Dog Supply and have been very satisfied with quick delivery, and excellent quality.

By: Colorado Bob

GSP. Hunts. Family pet.

I work for one of the largest firearms manufacturers in the U.S. and I have to tell you I'm impressed. The fit and finish on this revolver are very nice. In fact the fit is so good on mine that the cylinder stop doesnt even leave a trace line on the cylinder. The gun has a nice heft to it and not only does it look like the real thing but it feels like the real thing. I especially like the both the lanyard ring and the bright orange grip, two very useful features. The grip is ergonomic, fills my hand and is very comfortable. The bright orange color is a huge plus in todays world by giving a visual indication that this 'may not' be the real deal. This is the new gold standard in blank firing revolvers and frankly leaves the very highly sought after H and R and NEF blank firing revolvers in the dust. The $200 price tag may seem a little pricey to some but this is one of those instances where you get what you pay for. In fact if you can even find a NEF or a HR in decent enough shape that you would want to own, try getting one for $200. To say that I'm pleased with this purchase would be an understatement!

I'm a Starter for Track and Field races, and that's the primary use of my Alfa .22 caliber blank starter. I just put 150 blanks through it, July 16, 2016, and it worked flawlessly. I used BOTH, crimped and blank cartridges, and both worked great. One note, if you use 'crimps' you'll need to point the barrel down, or horizontal to the ground to prevent the crimps from moving. I gave it '4-Stars' because I've only used it once. However, after cleaning it, I don't expect any problems and look forward to using in the upcoming track seasons.

"the narrower bore end of the cylinder (which prevents use of true bullet rounds) tends to collect junk."

By: Richard Miller From IL

Corgi. Family pet.

I'm not using the gun for a dog (but I love the Corgi), using it as a track&field official for race starting. we use the 22 indoors, I also have a 32 (from you) for outdoor meets. for indoor meets with the 22, I may shoot up to 50 or so rounds over 2 to 3 hours. outdoor meets can be either the same or a lot less depending on how the meet is set up.

we use black powder blanks as we need all of sound, flash, and smoke so that runners do not have to look at us while timers on the opposite end of a track can "see" a start without relying on sound, which can have a significant delay at those distances. both the 22 and 32 Alpha are excellent at that, especially due to the porting of blast and smoke out of the top of the barrel. meet participants have noted to me the better sound and flash/smoke of the Alpha compared to a different brand blank firing gun when used back to back in a meet.

with black powder, the gun must be cleaned after about 50 rounds, sometimes more frequently. the usual problem is that the cylinder will not open or will not go back into position while reloading. the usual cause is junk from spent rounds either clogging the shell ejector or collecting at the bore end of the cylinder. the narrower bore end of the cylinder (which prevents use of true bullet rounds) tends to collect junk. the extractor has tight enough tolerances that almost anything will impact its positioning. I typically carry at least a cleaning brush with me all the time.
