Just give a date and if your gun shows up before then thats great but the expectation was that it would take that long to produce.
PE is the same way as BL. You buy the marker, you get on the list just like BL said. Just seems like BL buyers aren't insane and flame the PbN thread?

Bob, don't rush the anodizer. I want my custom work to be perfect and don't mind waiting the extra few weeks. Always better to get it done right then have to send it back for flaws (more time).

Well said Bob and I feel for ya 100%

The problem that we both have is you give custom anno as an option.

How many paintball manufactures offer you the ability to pick your own custom anno... 1 = Bob Long

Sure DLX and some others will offer production runs of custom anno guns. They release pics of them when they are done and don't take 1-1 custom jobs on a regular bases for there customers.

Offering a customer (like myself no doubt) to order one single gun in there color options is a nightmare.... Logistically.

I am sure you are ready to throw in the towel and tell everybody "Here is your all black gun, you go have it custom anodized".

I hope you read this Bob and I applaud you for giving customers the nightmare option that is called full custom anno... I have no doubt you are thinking about dropping the service. But for making those videos and giving everybody the rare ability for custom factory anodizing. Chris

see what you cry babies did.. ya made papa long a very mad man! should be ashamed, a man that has done so much for this sport and you gotta be like that.

to you Bob, its time someone tries to put the record straight and make some of these kids see reality. Im glad to support BLAST as I have for many many years, as well as my team. Quality takes time, and BLAST is the only top quality producer out there IMO.

Haters can go and buy their made in china and taiwan stuff from empire, eclipse and dye. These companies pay 1/8th of what they charge and have nothing to do with it except the initial design and to pay the asian machine shop to make it, assemble it and throw it in a box then stack them in a shipping container.

'merica ftw

Team VOODOO reppin Bob since the classic timmy

edit: also forgot to mention that probably 95% of my arguement with people that is blast vs XX company all haters have to say is either 1. Bobs guns leak/my "friends" always leaks. Its always what they hear or what they can make up. or 2. Bob doesnt offer packaging like other companies, they just give you a box with some foam. Kids dont seem to realize the mark up involved with allen keys, barrel cover, tube of lube, a plastic case and a printed manual. They pay for it in the end, if companies did away with all that, you'd be seeing their guns selling for atleast 200 dollars less, unless they have such a massive nut hugging following that will still pay current prices without all the little goodies.

Anybody else get teary eyed and want to sing"God Bless America" after watching that video. Being in my mid 40's and working for the largest American Aircraft Fuselage manufacturer it hit home. My son shoots nothing but Bob Long Guns. No sponsorship necessary.

I'm not saying we haven't had to wait for something or wondered where an order was or have something repaired, but we get it.
Thanks Bob.

Damn straight. I believe MacDev is exactly like this as well: manufacturing everything themselves and trying to take on the bigger companies. At least they were with the original Clone and previous (no knowledge afterwards).

Either way, to Bob and BLAST.

Not really this is talking about custom made to order markers.

the method of fulfilling orders is the same... that's all I'm pointing out. Pay money get on list - get marker when its done.

This thread is much more calm and less whiny than the PE one.

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.
