    Ok,

    I went ahead and bought a Champion Wheely Bird thrower for the family and I. I also bought an extra battery just in case, I have a double trickle charger to keep them topped off.

    I do need to be able to buy clays in bulk. The local Wally world carries Champion clays in boxes of 90 for $5.94.

    Any place else I should look for bulk quantities?

    Find out who the local White Flyer distributor is. Buy from him.

    At $5.94 a box of 90, unless you plan on buying 1,386 cases which is a truckload, I would
    continue to buy from Wally world. Even on T/L's you won't save a dime over what your current cost is.

    Check with some of your local clubs, White Flyer, or Lawrey. Some small clubs split truckloads and if you have the room, you might be able to be a partial load when the other's load gets put together.

    One of the clubs I shoot at, does sell White Flyer targets to anyone. Last price I saw was $11 a case. They are 135 targets per case.

    I buy mine ( White Flyers) by the pallet from my local club. I think they are about 66 or 67 cases per pallet.
    I pay about $1o per case

    Walmart 90 count @$6.00 inc tax =.0666 per Bird
    CAC 135 count @ 10.33 inc tax = .0765 per Bird 63 cases= pallet
    You will end up with more breakage at Walmart unless you buy a full pallet

    Sorry Harvey, we only get 22 pallets on our trucks. That's 1,386 cases or 187,110 targets.
    Trucks are overweight at 24 pallets.

    Hey there, what part of E. WA are you in? Our club splits truckloads with another small club, but we do supplement with the WF bios from Walmart. At their current price, you really can't beat it, and you can definitely order pallets that way.
