Just avoid mentioning paintball, or rec play.

There is only 2 reasons that I can think of that they would sell these guns for 1/2 the retail price-

1- They are discontinuing the gun, and focusing on the other products they sell. (ie like with rainmakers, and cockers).

2- They are selling them cheap to build up a market because they make most profit on "add-on" sales, ie PAVA rounds, pepperballs, etc.

In the case of #2, then they might end up loosing profit with too many rec sales, and stop the sale altogether. maybe not, who knows.
