2009 Paintball Loaders and Guns

We are trying to stock the pro shop up with the new 2009 equipment. We always get requests to stock high end paintball loaders and guns and some specific smaller products. Every year we get in the high end stuff but people come by and look at it, ask if they can “test” it, but never buy it. Then, at the end of the year, we end up discounting the heck out of it to move the stuff. This year, we are going to order mid-price(and below) paintball guns, and higher end clothing and accessories. We may get one or two big guns in, just for apperance(and we want to “test” it =))

As the year goes on, we will adjust to what people want to buy, and maybe a few things that people want to see. Some of the “totally new for this year” type of stuff, we will get. There are a few guns and a number of paintball loaders that are must haves. It’s always good to have the common stuff on hand in case of break downs during tournaments. Remember though, we are saving up for that nitrogen separator this year =) We need to reduce inventory or at least make it more efficient. I think people will really appreciate the availability of nitrogen fills.

Well, our paintball team has been skipping practices again. The Paintball Kings could be now called The Foosball Kings, lol. We spend too much time playing foos. Even though we have a great indoor field to play in 24/7, it easier to hang out at home, drink a few beers and slap the foosball around. I think we just need a break from it all for a bit. We all still snap shoot a few times a week. We ran some break drills this past weekend for two hours. Our paintball guns are all tuned-up and ready to shoot. Mark has even been adding onto his Tippmann X7, now that his grenade launcher is on(yes, I’m rolling my eyes).

The 5-man beginner tournament this weekend has 8 teams preregistered. I know most of the teams around here don’t qualify for it, and some are upset that they can’t play. These type of tournaments bring in new teams that are normally intimidated to play. They are very important for us to host and we would deeply appreciate it if the more experienced teams would show up to support them. Any coaching help, equipment advise or other constructive help could really ‘spur’ these new paintball players along.
