Paintball ramblings...

People are getting tired of all the negative economic news. At the same time many of us in the paintball industry are growing weary of the upheaval and turmoil. The standard comment I have been leaving on the blogs and forums and web sites has been, "The strong will survive."

While it's true the strong will survive it doesn't necessarily mean smooth sailing ahead. Like allot of things the paintball world is driven by fads and trends. Those that are growing fat off the current mil-sim craze will crash and burn under the weight of the growing liberal, anti assault sentiment that is creeping across the land.

Fortunately for paintball the real "strong" will survive and survive and survive. And they will do it on their own without sponsorship or corporate recognition and without selling out to the latest fad. Small fields all across the country who cater to the birthday parties and church groups and family outings will lumber along in the face of rate-of-fire and combat simulations and continue to provide fun, family entertainment.

The tournament world got top heavy and crashed. The same will happen to mil-sim. Nothing stands without a firm base for support. As long as there is enough of us out here who do it 'cause we love to see kids smile and parents become kids again the game of paintball will survive.
