the only thing Bob Long is doing is milling guns still, and not just having the "Private Label" guns lasered like so many other companies and still charging an arm and leg for.

besides, Bob is giving what people want, or at least the majority of people. he saw where the market is and is keeping up with it. nothing wrong with wanting to have every player with a Blast gun in their hands. simple as that.

Does not make him in the same category as TK. This is not like asking "is Bob Long ok". Thats not at all what the OP asked or said.

Bob long's "innovations" are not even but a footnote in the history of paintball. Somebody talk about politics and kill this thread already.

As I said in OP, Bob isn't an innovator.

Which is too bad. I think that he does create interesting (if not necessarily innovative) marker designs. As a player who can't shoot a stacked-tube design to save his life, I'm rather curious to try a Marq series. But I'll never buy one.

never said he was as good, just that he mills a guns. Tom Kaye is what he is, out of paintball. no matter what people have said, Tom Kaye isn't coming back. i was just making a point of what Bob Long does, which is more than some other companies. simple as that.
