Doesn't make much sense...although I will note that airsoft BB's are cheaper then paintballs...even though I can get pb markers for $100-/+ and the cheapest 'good' AEG still come over $300.
Still though, like Dart said, this is gonna suck for anyone who's already into the sport. New everything
is gonna hurt their wallets more then buying paintballs and CO2. It'll be an easy change for people who don't have anything yet
