Before everyone gets up in arms and starts arguing with each other, I think we should stop for a moment and sit back. This idea of .50 cal paintball is new to most of the players at this current time while not new to the sport of paintball. I am not going to sit here and bash the .50 cal nor will I say I'm for it. I think we should all sit back and see where it takes the sport we love. Sitting here divided is not going to help the industry. The economy is already down and paintball for the most part is also on the downswing. We see how tight money is in the industry as some shops and fields close while sponsorships are cut back dramatically even at the highest level. The last thing we need to do is pick sides and argue with each other. Now is the time we have to stick together and go with the flow. We all need to support the industry, especially in times like this! We play the sport cause we love it. For those of you who say "I won't play paintball if it all goes to .50 cal." Can you really call yourself a true paintballer when everyone else around and in the world converts to .50 cal. If .50 cal is what is the norm in paintball in five years, then so be it, I love this sport and the people I have met through it, so why should I stop because the caliber changed of the ball. Once again I am not saying I am for it, but at the same time I'm not saying I'm against it.
