And paintball guns might have a leg up on the competition in that particular market. Airsoft guns tend to be either oddly proportioned or clear at the chain stores so they can't be confused for real firearms. Paintball guns, well they have overly large barrels, big hoppers, and air tanks, so they don't have to resort to clear bodies or weird proportions.
As a bit of an aside, my local Walmart recently started selling firearms again.

Look at this whole thing as a good thing. Package deals are needed with the way the economy is now. Atleast JT is making an attempt to get the new player out onto the field. That's what we need more of,new players.

Can someone tell me why Kee is still selling markers with barrel plugs? Don't most fields prefer the use of a barrel sack?

Honestly I kind of like how KEE is starting to think. These will definatly beat the crap out of the other walmart guns. And obviously if military looking inline blowbacks have sold well in the past they will probably sell good now. And the people that buy guns at walmart will probably want mislim guns anyway. Add this to every thing else KEE has done reacently, and I'd say that KEE is in the market to win. It is definatly another step in the right direction (assumeing that these guns arn't absolute dog crap). Now all we need is for KEE to release a New (and good, not like the trilogy) Autococker. That would make me very very happy.

Anyone else really want an minor update to the ER2? Just add a darn velocity adjuster. Maybe I'm the only one who thinks they would be the perfect marker for cheap private play.

Our local Walmart carries Tippmann 98's or used to last I looked anyway. 98's in my opinion will always be superior to these JT/Kee/Empire whatever junkers. Seems likely that if they would stick to carrying a verified quality products kind might be more interested and so would the parents who would probably buy them for their kids.
As a note I do own many Kee products and markers such as a Mini, Axe, etc which are all fine products for their price points. On the entry level I disagree with them carrying these instead of quality Tippmanns.
