Exactly what I thought.
As to the OP: If the company becomes an exciting innovator in the paintball industry again, and this forum is important to the owners, then this forum will see new life.
But frankly, it is hard to get excited about all the new goodies I could get to play paintball with when I can hardly afford to pay my electric bill. No doubt many members feel the same. As far as new gear goes.....that ain't gonna happen. I'll be lucky to scrape together enough cash for paint and air to play for a day.
Sorry about the let down on the Steve Jobs thing. Who will invent my electropneumatic ipod with apps and wifi now?? It seems like paintball is going through a moment where all the guys that started in the late nineties early 2000s are getting to the age where they are starting families and getting jobs and really don't have time or money for paintballing anymore. And all the kids that would have replaced them were the age we started at when the recession hit, therefore they never got into it. Maybe that's the big problem. If that really is the case, whatever company wants to thrive right now better have a plan to get new kids into the sport, and have products that target the "not so rich" segment that a lot of us find ourselves in nowadays.
