Paintball and gray hair...

Here's some fun math.

Suppose I purchase some markers for $10 from my retailer and sell them at my shop for $15. And let's say it's not a bad marker but it's just not selling very well and the retailer drops the wholesale price on the marker to $5.

Now some guy comes along, buys up a bunch of them and offers them on the internet for $10 and free shipping (and no tax because he's out of state).

Guess what happens to the profit I hoped to make on my markers (Profit - you know, the stuff I use to pay the rent and electric and phone and the one trip a week to Booger King with my granddaughter.).

Sounds pretty screwed up, no?

Happens all the time.
