We have a ton of support from you guys, random people, paintballers in general, and many people in the industry. That doesn't even include our families and personal contacts.
When we said "hey, this sucks and we kinda need some help" a whole host of people jumped up to the plate to offer their aid. It seems as though quite a few have not had the purest intentions. Granted we're looking to spend money, it's unfortunate how some of this has turned out.
At this moment, we are still looking for a place to run the appropriate parts.
We have NDAs signed and prints submitted to multiple machine shops, but we have not received an actual quote besides the original quote we had made for one shop overseas. I know that there are at least two places working on writing up a quote, but it's been a bit slow
Machines are in the future. Near future? That's hard to say. I do have a very valuable contact in the tool and machine industry who has no issue with helping leverage his position to help me (Us). Hopefully we can get the quotes taken care of and such so we can move forward and start looking into the future. It'd be great to own our own equipment, but at this moment, we have more pressing matters.
