HUH? LAPCO is still open for business last I heard (who knows for how long though).
http://www.lapco.us/index.html

Colin had been an employee of LAPCO for some time I think. The Ghost is not patented as far as I know, but I'm pretty sure that the designs/tooling/parts stayed with LAPCO.

WHERE do you come up with some of this stuff splattttttt?

With Colin gone, he heart is no longer there, it's just that soulless chick who tried to stop Blowfish from selling the Grey Ghost over ebay. With no soul, the company will slowly spiral into worse and worse products and more of a cutthroat corporate attitude, unlike how Colin worked with Mike Casady and others to upgrade the Grey Ghost. Then the company will slowly die.

CD, I remember during a brief period after the split, that both the forum and Lapco website were gone. I just never went back due to that most people's comments were leaning towards a departure from business as usual.
I'm glad to see that I'm wrong (T/Y). I should have probably done a more extensive follow up on Lapco.

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...

I have a feeling Lapco will pull an AKA and abandon any new products and just try to stick with what they have after thier founder left. I don't expect to see any new products to come out of Lapco any time soon.

Too bad too, they are beautiful markers
totally agree

Just so you know, Painthappy, you will probably need to swap the green/yellow main for a phantom main (either a red or a silver, i forget). When mine came I didnt have a chrono, but on flat ground the ball went about 50' at best, couldnt have been more than 200fps.

(BTW: Mine was 203 lol)
