Loyalhanna, PA – January 6, 2010 – Paintball manufacturer Smart Parts, Inc. is temporarily shutting down all manufacturing and sale operations in order to facilitate a corporate restructuring.

They will automatically be refused and returned to the sender.

“To the players, field owners and store owners, please know that we appreciate your support and are looking forward to a fresh start for the 2010 paintball season. We apologize for any inconvenience this short closure may cause, and hope to make it up to you in the future.”

American companies should not have the ability to relocate overseas. GG to the Feds for their collective inaction. Revolution anyone?

To be honest it would kinda suck if they went under. I don't think it would help paintball to much... Well, maybe it would ha. Why would the company that makes a gun as unrealiable as the shocker go overseas where it would cost more for shipping as well as take longer?

I haven't been keeping track of the paintball scene for a while now. Why did the 09 Impulse fail?
