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.

If they drop two more for next year we'll be at the max rate of the old Shocker Turbo's; 11.2 BPS. I liked that cap. Fast enough to get almost any runner on the move but slow enough you had to know how to shoot to get them.

Funny. All the while I was thinking the reason for dropping the rate of fire, was so that the players might be able to add a millisecond to accomplish theie next move in hopes of avoiding being hit. Avoid being hit? Sorry, that made no sense.

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...

Oh I can see companies and agglets raising HELL. Why can't I shoot 30 BPS. It doesn't make sence. HMMMM maybe I should post this question over at PBN lol. Well I guess Auto Cockers might make a come back with low rate of fire.
Later,
Blackrain

They have been raising hell, but Lane Wright gets to make the decision, not them.

Moreover, I think that PSP is trying to lower the cost of tournament paintball. The biggest expense for any team has to be paint. They're also making most of the matches at the various levels a "race" to certain a certain point total instead of unlimited points.

If they made it 10BPS the paint cost would drop by 33%. Probably more because big moves would happen more often and break the games open quicker. Dropping 2BPS is a start but not significant enough to make a substantial difference IMHO.
