Anyone know what happened to PW Paintball in Plainville, MA?

Hey guys (especially those in MA),

So, I'm just wondering if anybody has any information about PW Paintball going out of business recently. According to their website, it states that "As of July 31st, 2012" they are CLOSED. Does anybody out there know the owner, Paul? From what I've heard and what I know he was a stand up guy and it seemed like he did good business in the area for a very long time. I've used his store before on many occasions and the closing of it seemed sudden and surprising.

The reason I'm wondering is because I dropped off three HPA tanks in need of hydrotesting there on July 22nd, and to me it seemed as though everything was fine. He didn't foretell of any issues concerning an impending bankruptcy or the likes. It was sort of a shock when I visited the webpage a week or so later and saw that he had closed down.

I've tried emailing him a few times in the last couple of weeks and have gotten nothing in return. It's just that I'm leaving for school this week and won't be available to pick the tanks up until Christmastime. I'm not trying to smear his name or business because I know that he is a stand up guy, but does anyone have any info on how I can contact him more efficiently than the email on his website? I understand he has an account here on MCB, but it looks like he hasn't been on in a while. Any information is helpful!

Thanks in advance everyone,
-Brian

I may be thinking of the wrong store...but I think they had close ties to Airsports in Ludlow, could try asking the owner there.

Chaos here on the boards knows him really well, he should be able to clear this up when he chimes in.

Awesome, thanks guys!

Deuce, I agree. It is unfortunate. He had such an eclectic collection of old guns on display and really seems to appreciate the history of the game, which is rare in most pro shops in the area...

Yes he has closed up shop but don't worry too much man.....just be patient with him right now, he is a stand up guy and is trying to get everyone with equipment in there done.He will be contacting you soon about it. If he doesn't contact you by Oct. 1st let me know and I 'll contact him.

I heard that in July. I heard he's moving to an internet only store now. I hope everything works out for him.
