Basically it means we are not going anywhere. Some other big name manufacturers have dissipated over the last 3 years for various reasons. A few more are having trouble. The main reason for this seems to be that they are doing more than just BB's. They lose focus, outsource the product, and the quality goes to hell.

We are sticking with BB's only for now, and even when we expand later this year, it's only going to be with feed path items (mags, hop up, barrels, suppressors). We won't ever make guns or pistols or gear. Our focus is going to stay on performance, accuracy and range.

We feel if we keep our focus instead of trying to make a buck on a million different products we will continue to succeed.

We have had some really crazy growth this year and managed to break our one and only rule, never be out of stock. We now have a better idea of how to project our stock needs, and won't be letting that happen again. We are also going to be shipping from separate warehouses in Chicago and Vancouver soon to reduce shipping costs to our customers here and in the US.

So if you enjoy our product and it works for you, you can count on it being around, being in stock, and continuing to get better.

We are still on track for North American manufacturing, one of our biggest goals.

I'm a huge fan of BB Bastards. Once you guys introduce glow BBs, I'll never need to use another brand. I'm pleased to see you have a common sense plan for the future.

Actually, .25g glow in this shipment, other weights coming.

The new warehouse is up and running and the cut over to the new site will happen this weekend. We had a delay with our merchant processor, but its been resolved. If it isn't Google complainting that we have a rude word in our name, it's a merchant service vendor who thinks we're arms dealers and doesn't want our business after years of trouble free transactions! Morality coming from the biggest porn search engine on the planet. The hypocracy is stunning.

We have gobs of .25g sytrene in 2000 count (everyones favorite this year) and a good reload on .28g.

For those in the west, our Vancouver warehouse will come online before the end of the year, so BC and the west have better, less expensive more timely options. We're also signing up new dealers throughout Canada in order to give our customers more localized access to their favorite ammo. The goal is that as we get closer to the 2012 spring season, BB Bastard will be on every shelf and orderable online with fast cheap shipping right across Canada.

More news on the way, stay tuned!

Dam good choice. I have only and will only use bastards. They have been the staple in airsoft in Canada and the more they branch out only helps there cause. Congrats to the BB Bastard family.
