<grin> Way back in the day where you were outright *rich* if you had 200 rounds on you in a single day.

I was getting cases of paintballs this past year for $36/2000 rounds. Only ever played at BYOP fields. Yes I go PB'ing once in a while with friends. Primarily private group bookings only.

I remember when the Sgt Splatters was in Brampton. It works out paintball is 10 a shot. Airsoft at the time was 1. Try doing the SAW thing with a paintball gun.

you are right. in hindsight, none of your products are expensive, i was just commenting on the price to quantity ratio when comparing .28 to .30. in that effect, the .3s are pricy. though in the grand scheme of things, none of your products are especially when given the obvious quality of them.

I remember paintball back when getting another 100rnds was a huge deal, like "holy shit guys, he's gonna want to keep going until tomorrow". Heck I remember when semi's were the exception and stock-guns were still fielded regularly. When taking a shot was a total descision process starting with how early you wanted to quit.
I started airsoft because it's closer to the real-deal, but also a part of me recognized the cheapness of the ammo.
Performance is definately a major seller with the Bastards, less shots taken per hit makes for a cheaper day shooting. Which is why I'm feeding my AEG .28s along with pretty much everyone else around here. Actually I'm using .2s tonight but I don't forsee really long engagement ranges by moonlight.
Cheers,
Grant

Okay, after getting it up the poopchute by our exchange rate, I put a reorder in last week. In that reorder I've ordered 50 bags of .36gr and 50 of .40gr as a dry run. Since my experience with .30gr, I'll see what the demand is first before I do a bulk order. I'll make sure CDN_Stalker and Sha Do get some to give them a serious run around the block in testing to offer an opinion - if the product is shit, I don't want to carry it obviously. The bulk of my sales are low weight anyways, so it wouldn't hurt me much not to carry it, but I do recognize there are those here that exclusively use heavier weights, so, I'll do my best to ensure there is at least some local supply if these turn out to be a good item.

There should be enough time between now and spring to establish testing, get an opinion and look at the volume and have that supply available regularly starting the spring of 2009.

Yes, indeedy...!

Its a light OD, not dark, so it may trace better than black but still give you some stealth properties...
