Now they have a big box brand. That's great! We did the same thing when we started dealing with Costco. Separate your main brand with the "sell out" "whore" brand.

Have you visited the paintball section in WalMart? KEE runs those streets. I haven't seen another brand in there (besides Tippmann) in forever.

WalMart in Canada has ZERO paintball stuff now, Kee, Tippmann or otherwise. They do have Airsoft stuff though.

I've been noticing that around me as well. WalMart in central Wisconsin seems to have gotten out of the paintball market. Not quite sure why. Even their SplatMaster stuff is gone.

Their websites still have everything. It just doesn't sell well in the stores.

I'm sure they have some sort of market vision if this is true. Long term or short term gain you think?

It'll be interesting to see what Kee does with the MR5 tech/patents. Axe grade version of the EMR5 to compete against the DAM? Yes please.

Well, not exactly. In the case of paintball. As your user base (# of players) shrinks, manufactures consolidate and down size.

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.
