msrp=manufacturer suggested retail pricing(this is what the maker says it should sell for)

map=minimum advertised price(this is the lowest amount you can advertise an item for)

please do not post dealer pricing, trust me its hard enough for anyone to make a living in this sport without everyone knowing their margins.

Guessing based off the wording, MAP is more strict than MSRP. "S" = suggested.

IMO, not as effective use of money putting towards events when the barrier to entry into the sport is so prohibitively high in the first place.

Meh, for the most part, people know there can be a sizable markup on most things they buy. Only way retailers can continue is to make money. Can't do that charging what you pay for an item.

Although I do have to say, $1000 to $1500 on some markers seems pretty obscene to me. I understand it's like cars. You have your Yugos and Your BMWs. But I have to ask, are paintball guns so different to charge $1000 between them? Honestly asking here. I have never shot a $1000 marker.

The markup is normal (arguably anyways). The cost cutting has to come at the manufacturing level. The most obvious way to cut costs is volume. But if the demand is not there (from the players, and how many of them), then that volume is never reached. Then, the demand never gets there because pb is still expensive. Have fun with that... XD

$1000 confidence booster. Confidence boosters do help when playing pb. I usually don't directly buy my confidence boosters, especially not for that much.
