I'm on the pre-order list, but have been told that there could be a slight delay. Since I have to shoot & wear all Empire that's fine with me since I have my trusty Axe anyway
If you're at a bigger field or a field that promotes Empire some demos may show up over the next few months to keep hype going. It's a stunning gun, shoots at least as nice as my (former) Luxe and I'm happy that KEE is using the Smart Parts patents themselves instead of just licencing them to DLX. Although it may create difficulty for further Luxe development.
