  • Valken’s Andy Potter and Valken Factory Team’s Clay Walls might be friends, but that’s not going to stop Potter from capping him at “Zombies vs. Humans” in April. Http://www.lcpscenariogames.com to get signed up.
  • “Sexy” Rex from Old River Paintball went all Blue on me and kicked my door in to remind me about “Ma Barker” going on at the legendary Florida field next weekend, the 24th and 25th of March. Coincidentally, that’s the weekend of my birthday!
  • This weekend, Ashley, The Dark Child, The Death Kitties, Bo the Happy Puppy, The Itteh Bitteh Kitteh Committeh and I are all moving in to our new house…where kicking the door in will NOT be tolerate!
  • Anyone want a kitten? They’re adorable!
  • I have it on good authority (thanks to Taiwanese Minions) that the wafers (bare boards) for the Machine Paintball Vapor were in as of late last week, and I would imagine by now that the boards are ‘populated’, and possibly on their way to meet their corresponding guns. I noted on Machine Paintball’s FB page that they’re about to ‘do this’. Hope everyone’s ready!
  • You know Sonny Lopez of Team LA Hitmen? Playing pump wasn’t hardcore enough for him, so now he’s going bolt action. And he needs your help beta testing: http://thefordreport.com/2012/03/sar12-paintball-sniper-rifle-from-carmatech-engineering/

There will be a time block where you can interact with them on Facebook/BluesCrewTV to ask questions and get answers.”

  • So there I was, at work beating the crap out of a raggedy old copier, and I get an email from an industry person, noting that I tout Andy Potter as a beastmode salesman. He is “The Beast From The East”, but there are more badass sales reps out there, like Valken’s Will Bourgalt or Vanguard’s Frank Connell. This individual made mention of a beast at his company, and thinks I ought to do a survey to get the opinion of customers as to who the real deal is on taking care of their customers. Thing is, I don’t know all of the reps at every company, so unless the industry heads want to drop me an email with their nomination, I can’t properly assemble a list to do a survey on. How about it, Industry Guys?
