New intimidator coming out!

I called Bob's shop this morning to check on a part and low and behold, Bob answered the phone. He was sitting around waiting for some guys to show up so I had a chance to pick his brain. I'll share a couple of things he said.
1) he is definitely coming out (don't know when) with a Chris Lasoya timmy.
2) The next GZ will get a new, shorter grip frame. He is also planning on making the trigger guard larger for faster shooting
3) he's coming out with a clamshell grip frame without the LCD
4) the single reg is going to be redesigned soon due to "o-ring" problems
5) He plans to continue making classics but they will now come with the clamshell grip frame (no idea when).

I couldn't believe how cool he was on the phone. Intimidators Rock!!!

Now you know why I take time from running my own business to work with the man. His friendliness is part of what makes him so great.
They're are building the new Team gun today for practice tomorrow on his new X-Ball field.

That's awesome. Personally I would definately buy a matching clamshell for my Classic if anyone would sell them. That is my only gripe. I love the fact that with Intimidators people can actually talk to the designer/mind behind it. This is the only paintball marker company I can think of that it happens with.

I couldn't agree with you guys more. Bob is a class act. The fact that he took the time to talk with me says alot about his character. Between that and the Timmy being such a great marker, I can see why there are so many loyal Timmy owners.

Every time i have been up to his shop I have been amazed at how great of a guy he is. He showed me the design for the 2k2 before they were even in production, he sold my friend a volumizer for his gz before they were even released, he sold my other friend an sob board and volumizer for a very good price, he let us shoot a team gz black to red fade gun with a halo b on it way before the halo b was released, he let us shoot a dragon with a was board before or right when they were first released, etc etc. He is a really cool guy and every time i have met him i have really enjoyed talking to him. It was also cool to see the airball field set up where the ironmen practice and stuff.

That is the main reason.....

to deal with anyone. They love the sport and their customers. Bob has ALWAYS been that kind of guy. And now that the Timmy sales are going nuts he still takes time to answer the phone.


Great guy...great company.

I am so glad that the classics are not going to be discontinued and they will come with a clamshell. Very cool.

I think I might take a drive down to that area and go check it out this coming spring. Maybe find a field and shoot it up with some Cali people for a day also.

yeah that was true in my case too. i bought one of the first batch of dragons and i had some questions so i emailed tech support on bob's site. well about 2-3 days later, bob called me to answer all my questions... he said he didn't like typing/computers too much
that just blew me away... and now i'm on my 3rd dragon timmy

Tom Kaye(creator of automag) is just as involved with his loyal mag users, if not more, than Bob Long and timmy users. on automags.org he gets alot of his ideas for products and names of products from the mag users themselves. just thought he deserved some credit along with Bob Long.
