Here's my thoughts and I'll let it stay here. One thing I can say about SP is that they backed and still back the Military. Mr. Gardner SR. Was in the 82nd Airbourne (Look at the AA's first banner insignia). AA stands for "All Americans",that's who the 82nd is, "The All Americans"
I have never had issues with SP. Everytime I called I was helped. I either spoke with Adam or Bill 85% of the time.
It was upsetting when all the law suites happened and to me it started ruining the sport.
It's funny that 15yrs-20yrs ago,you could see everyone sitting around together and brain storming how to make the sport better and then somehow it got lost.
I like that I can call GoG and talk with a human and not be routed around on a phone. It's nice talking with Adam again on the phone. I really hope it stays that way.
I think that SP/GOG is heading in the right direction with their introduction of beginner level equipment. I hope it stays that way for a good while. Remember who really keeps the sport going,the beginner.
Their guns are affordable and under $300. But they have done a little innovation. They are one of the only two companies that I know of that put multi feeds on their guns,the other being CCI. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
GOG has a decent face book following,but their web page sucks,which I understand is being reworked. So I think if SP/GOG stays on this path,they will help beginner paintball progress. There is nothing wrong with the VIBE or SP1. GOG even admitted on their Face Book that they are made in China,but boards are USA.
I'm not fan boying here,I'm just calling how I see it for right now. My local field just opened an account with GOG,so I'm hoping to see more repair parts arrive in my area.

Either way. I wonder if someone could make money running a mobile paintball store season-to-season-buy a rig like this and a few canopies and a pile of inventory and just drive around to large scenarios over the course of a season with a few guys. You could probably live out of that rig easily enough, looks like there's a camper setup in the back and you could throw up cots in the trailer easily enough to keep costs down, get a few friends and rotate out so that some guys play and some guys sell. Probably wouldn't get rich doing it, but it'd be a cool way to spend a summer.

I've seen some E-Mags with removable breech blocks. Same goes for some early Matrices. T2s have independent upper tubes for changing out the feed to stock class. New Grey Ghosts and late-model Sterlings have the same feature. The powerfeed on the Pro-Team guns was attached via screws so it could be swapped left to right. BT guns have rail-based feeds so you can run them either direct or springfeed...
I'm sure I'm missing a couple.

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

No, Kee's got those now.
EDIT: Also, that is a hideously depressing building for one of the former industry titans. That's like finding out that Microsoft is run out of a rented basement suite in an industrial complex or something.
