They would get a LOT of sales that way. People will buy there, just to save on shipping. And pick it up a week or so later, next time they were there.

Or sometimes if I'm fixing a gun, and just need to have that part. I can buy it, and pick it up. Or look online and see that they don't have it, and save my butt the time driving.

I honestly think they're missing a big market that way. And if not big, then just me

They have open source (read: Free) programs to do this.. heck Palmers is running one right now for their store. It's free!!!

And it would just be some labor/time to input and keep it up, but once running, inventory shouldn't be that difficult.

... Wow... just ranting here... Time to go...
I fully understand. And I would be more than happy to get it set up for themů as I have for everything else they have done online. I think that is a great idea. I may toss it at them again at some point.

Heh... Ah.. Somedays you need to really spell it out for me. And don't I wish. I could turn that place right around (or so I would think)...

But the money to purchase such a place in todays $$$ would be very large.

You'd see hell freeze over first. Cynthia's business has thinned out mainly because of her Draconian FPO policy, and the "Paint Nazis" she sends out every weekend searching for off-field paint.
It's even worth it to bring a 10 stick of off-field paint and waste someone with it to see them in action.
The "Our insurance doesn't allow off-field paint" excuse just doesn't cut it with me anymore. Hell, even Canobie allows BYOP now, and the list keeps growing. Look at the CROWDS at parks like Fox4, Camp Paintball and the like. They all have EXACTLY the SAME insurance carrier, and you can BYOP.
And to top that, they sell SEVERAL BRANDS at what you'd pay for it on line or at any decent proshop. Brands you can RECOGNIZE too, not Wal-Mart/Dicks/Modell's/K-Mart mystery cheapo brands that you've never heard of.
Don't get me wrong, I love Adventure Games, the park and people are GREAT, but I'm voting with my feet on this one. I want these things when I go to a park:

1) A CHOICE of REASONABLY PRICED PAINT.
2)CUSTOMER SERVICE
3)No "SLAM FILLS" that cook my HPA tank.
And I won't return until I get them, I can get them elsewhere, with less of a drive.

I had considered going to Adventure Games this year but I was put off by the outdated pricing listed on the website. I'd rather pay a higher field fee and get to choose my own paint. That and I really like all day air with self serve 45k fill stations.

Not that its a reliable source, but some of the refs who post on PBR, are indicating that AG will be under new managment next Spring.

Does anyone here have any dirt? Just curious what to believe...

Haven't heard myself. I wish they still had their message boards up. I miss that.

Oh well.... And the new management is NOT me...
