I used to love Spec Ops. Especially since the store was local to me being based out of Utah. Now it seems the only thing I can buy from here is a Tippman. Spec Ops used to sell just about everything in terms of a marker that I could want. But now they seem to specifically sell one brand. What happened to the Longbow system? That was probably some of the most innovative and coolest stuff to come to paintball in a long time and they just stopped making them. They were obviously selling em. There is still demand for em. So what happened? I miss the old store where I could come here and buy just about anything...now...I dunno...

Come on guys MO is trying. Its very hard to bring something so awesome back to full potential when you are operating with considerably less capital and people. But, he is doing a great job. Now SpcOps need as much support as we can give it if it will ever be back on top. HAve some faith it"ll get there.

Guys you gotta give it up for Mo. This guy just went and bought a company that he loves to keep bringing you some sick soft goods. Yeah maybe hardgoods isnt what it used to be but seriously, the vests and soft goods alone sell the most. Yes there was and is still a demand for Longbow systems but it wasnt there big seller. Their big seller was their fusions and their custom vests. Plus if you send Mo a PM on something you want custom made, 9 times out o 10 he will do it for you. That to me shows dedication and love for his sport, his shop, and his fellow ballers.

You guys are making it seen like we were all negative.

You know it, I know it. SpecOps will never be the same. I am not saying anything bad about Moati. I am referring to the razorback, Elite weeked, Recon mags, Longbows, Positions, MOVIES!

Trust me, I love MO. I have spoke with him in the phone before and he placed an order for me over the phone while Special Ops was off on Thanksgiving break. He is a great guy and customer service is his priority, gotta love that. What I'm getting at is that Mo now makes mainly soft goods. Special ops used to be everything. I'm not saying that I don't like Mo's new company, not at all, I love it; but it will never be the same as the original Special Ops Paintball.

Different isn't worse or better, it's all about the potential. And I can't think of a better owner for a store than player. In a bit I expect it will be just as complete, Different, but complete.

So you are saying that it could be the same? I honestly can sat it won't ever be the same.

Longbow, Snipers, Action Ghillie, Tanks, Recon mags, Position specific equipment, ELITE WEEKEND, The brigade!!!

Never once did I say it was bad, so how is what I said harsh? Unless Jayson Orvis took control over Spec Ops again, and everyone joine together, it won't be the same.

I think Gulla covered it.

SpecOps is Different, but not in a bad way.

Specops used to be all for the player. With all the free stuff they gave away. They just can't afford to do that anymore becase of the economy.

Mo took what was fast becoming extinct and is in the process of reviving it. Nothing is ever the same. Even if it had not folded, Tiger Stripe would've had to change. Nothing is ever what it once was. Like Spec Ops? Help keep it alive. Buy stuff.

Has the recession not hit you? Many many of us cannot just "buy stuff" from them because we want to support the company. There are plenty of other ways to support the company rather than buying from them.
