Everything is owned by Smart Parts now. It's ok though because they developed heat seeking paintballs so you don't waste much paint anymore.

Stickers are old news, i got so many i cant move without crackling.

Is mil-sim the new thing? it was pretty frowned upon when i was in (i feel old)

eh, it's more the fact that companies are realizing that it is a very worth while market, cause that's where 80% of the players are... in the woods. And thats where all the money is, pleople on the speedball fields are all about the free swag, sponsorships and attitudes. Where In the woods people are paying to play and the market is deff. there. Now the big companies are seeing this and making their move in that direction.

When that day comes that Smart Parts sues everyone and owns everything, I'm quitting life.

Bob Long is still very much in the game. Good to see you back!

Bob Long has the M-Tac now. This is a Marq driven scenario gun with a pressurized trigger frame. More information on it can be found here. (http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=2720657)

Empire has joined with Ben Tippmann and produced the Tm7. This is the equivalent of a Mini inside of a scenario, H&K MP7 shell. More information here. (http://www.btpaintball.com/tm_7.php)

Lol... Bob's new guns are supposedly comparable to Borgs. We'll see soon here, I'll have to do a comparison.... But they are the Gen5 Intimidators (the Vice and Protege, that is!).

The Luxe is also new: http://www.luxepaintball.com/
