Ok what is national dealing

Ok once I got the 06 catalog most of the items were either out of stock or no longer even being dealt through national.
So my question is who do they deal with
I am throughly interested if they deal with WDP
Sorry I just hate calling a rep every seconds when a person wants something.
Thank you for all info.

I know they don't deal with WDP and Tippmann. They don't carry hardly anything JT, heck they don't carry a bunch of the things they own like Halo, 32 Degrees and almost everything else is never in stock.
It is rough trying to get anything from them anymore!

Maybe they are in trouble financially?

Its not just NPS...

APS and us are both pretty tapped on invintory as well. Though both of us arent quite as out of stock as NPS.

After the industry took a face plant those last year or so many of us got burned badly on old invintory that we had stocked up on, thus as the industry begins to come back slowly we are very wary to jump right in and go full on and stock up on things to great of a chance on getting burned again...

Your observation is correct matman NPS has run into a slight financial hardship, however I won't get into that one. Gino has his own issues and even though I dispise the man, I will honor his privacy.

You expect us to believe you belong in this forum, yet you start off the first sentence with "Ok". I am very confused.

Z is right about financial trouble. For the last decade, paintball has experienced incredible growth virtually free of recession. When that recession finally hit, a lot of companies, including NPS and APS, took a solid blow to their financial status. In response, they reduced their order size in an effort to avoid overstocking items that may not sell and eventually result in a loss.

If you want it in child language, here it is:
Imagine NPS is a small-time store. Would a small-time store order 100 DM6's when they may only sell 10? Or would they order 5 for the time being and the rest per the customer's request?

I understand that, but what about NPS' core line. NPS doesn't have Halo's, 32 degrees items, and now they are not carrying any stock Spyder parts.
Which almost all of their markers are spyder clones so why not have those parts.

Do they still want to be a wholesaler or are they just going to keep adding online stores to cut our throats?

PMI and now procaps are actually becoming big into the picture.
PMI has WDP, JT, Tippman, halo, and more. Procaps has ego, smart parts, and more.
