I'll take care of it, best time to get one is while people are gathering for the pre-game, I'll be at the booth getting everything together and you guys should be ready to play at that point, it'll be your best opportunity and I'll post the picture(s)
here after the event.

Sounds like some level of bankruptcy or early stages of filing bankruptcy.

Mike you hit the issue on the head, as usual.

Yeah paying $20 less for a case of paint is nice, theoretical data which has been very accurate pokes holes through GI's claims and relies perception on it's own, the human eye isn't good at tracking moving objects and gauging distance, it's why we spent $150 on barrels when a CP 1 piece worked just as good for $50 bucks.

To sum it up, paintball has been in a decline for close to 8 years, we saw it the most after 2005 when the way the numbers where collected. Between 2000 and 2007 before the recession we saw continual steady decline. Between 2000 and 2007 the cost of playing was drastically reduced across the board, markers got cheaper and performed better, paint got cheaper and performed better, paintball as a whole become cheaper to play, yet the numbers dropped. Now the proposed fix, put forth by people that have made glorious claims and flat results or have been bought out for control in thier company.

Paintball has been in a steady decline even as the cost dropped, dropping the cost by $20 isn't a fix, the loss in performance isn't worth paying less and buying more, more paint, more gear, more crap. Maybe the issues aren't with costs but with how we're playing?

There's a very simple reason why GI is pushing this to speedballers, the nation. ALOT of the kids on the nation are lets face it, lemmings, we know they'll buy what's shoved in there face if they push it right. It's why it's GI Milsim, most mil-sim guys aren't on nation let alone on-line, they make their markers look right they'll get the sales cause people will see them in stores, magazines and on-line by looking like a scenario company, marketing like we all know they would and pushing on those who are easy sells.
