Unfortuately there are some slimey people out there, and for some reason paintball and airsoft brings out the worst kinds. I have never had dealings with this specific individual, but people like him. I was helping a friend with his paintball business back home. One of the other local operators (store and field), was very loose and fast. He had no business or work ethic. He felt like the community owed him, that we should be grateful that he was running a shop/field.
It just shows that competition is the best thing to keep a retailer honest.
