It's panhandling to a certain party. The CEO of the PSP was approached by industry leaders (manufacturers) to lower the rate of fire in hopes that there will be a trickle down effect to lower level leagues, and yes, recreational play so that the current decline in paintball participation can in hopes be reversed. It's not much but it's a start.
