Why in the world would they use the phrase "blow you away",
when they're trying to sell us high pressure air tanks.
That's just what I want GA, just blow me off the face of the earth!

so much irony if one of their tanks god forbid has a catastrophic failure


As much as people are talking about Dan and co. going to ninja, I'm sure as far as R&D goes, he probably signed a non-compete clause which states he cannot do anything that will directly compete with his former company for a set amount of time (typically a year to five years). I think GA should realize that pb is a very small community and that bad press can sink you if you are not careful. In a country where most people are losing their jobs, just firing liked employees is not going to look favorable no matter how much good business it was. I mean just imagine if they did this to billy wing at dye, **** would be on.

Exactly

The standard Non Compete typically last one or two years at most. They are also extremely easy to get out of based on a number of factors. Legally inside the united states, one cannot prevent another from a type of job if that is all that he/she is trained in. For example, in FL non competes are almost completely unenforceable. Depending on how/why they were really let go will also determine the Non Compete.

What are you guys? Golfers or something?

I've had 3 separate GA systems (2 68's and 1 45 and none of them made a ping sound)

All I want to say is that Debbie was fantastic the one time I called GA for some spring kits. (Yeah, Ninja fanboys, I did buy a separate part to my system to get me to a high pressure output) It sucks to hear that they let that individual go.

But for what it's worth, Dan Colby practically created high pressure air for paintball and what ever he's up to, I'll tag along. I have an Air America Apocalypse that's been with me many years AND STILL WORKS PERFECTLY.
I hope the best for all the people who are now no longer with GA. And now that all this nonsense has happened, I probably won't be with GA anymore either.

I don't even think this is a reflection of the Colby side of the camp, but more like a YSN Imports thing. Seems to me that camp is on a rampage of self dessication.

Dot. While Tom didn't really invent High Pressure air, the bottles used or the threading, he did implement them into one coherent package suitable for paintball use and that my friends is .

GA made a great business move. Close a location and fire all the employees there that were there for a while and making more money than the people you hire to replace them at another location for minimum wage. I mean us paintball players are fickle ya know. We're gonna forgive and forget in a day or two anyways as long as there is now paintball forum around to remind us of the poor way to treated your employees that are respected within and by the community.

rudz, most know that not everyone in a company is a bad person. But the leadership of the company, unfortunatly, gives people the impression of how the company is. I'm sure there are some great people still working for GA out in Cali, but the company leadership has put a bad taste in the mouth of their consumer base. Unfortunatly for those great people that are employed by the company, they are going to end up paying for it when there are job cuts and the likes because business has died down because of their consumer base no longer buying their product.

Not if he was employed by the company and made it during his tenure and hours working for GA. It would then be owned by the company he works for.

I think he sold some of the patents of the Myth reg to Guerrilla, but it's Dan Colby we're talking bout here. He's got something cooking up

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
