Certainly with the latest news to have hit the airwaves over the last couple of days…all is not well in the paintball world, much and all as The Catshack would like it to be. Unfortunately this is not a perfect world we live in and this worldwide recession is damaging to everyone and anyone trying to make a living in the business world.
Plainly put it is just so important for all of us in the paintball community to support those paintball industries that in turn support us and the game we all love. While some products and such may not be something that you personally care for…it is a matter of preference. Based on some of the responses to the press release issued to media by the paintball company “Smart Parts”, there are many who do appreciate all the products and innovations that Smart Parts has introduced us to over the years. According to some of my sources Smart Parts has used some of their profits to support tournaments and other worthwhile endeavors in a very significant way.
The Catshack touched base with Bad Revrend to discuss some of the issues and address some concerns as it pertains to the rumor mills. Armed with a few ideas, Bad Revrend and company intend to make a difference and step up to help paintball and those companies in need. The idea of asking wholesalers to perhaps consider cutting the wholesale cost by a small percentage could stimulate sales for companies like Smart Parts is one such innovative idea. Stay tuned for more developments as they happen. In the meantime a short video interview with Bad Revrend outlines this article and includes some additional thoughts and ideas…enjoy!
