$20??!?! They should be giving away 10 for each purchase.

n95 certified masks are like $1-$2

Hell, my overpriced Milwaukee n95 with respirator was $5/pc.

If they are donating two for every one sold then they are about $6.67 each, but you only get one. Not to mention their cost overtime for making them Is more since they won't be making them for long and they won't sell anywhere near the amount the companies that make n95 masks will.

The fudds can't wait. Even though HK started in a garage, and has been one of the few small companies to expand in to something bigger. Paintball loves to eat their own.

That doesn't change the fact that they are using a Pandemic to make money off a product that literally doesn't help you at all.

Those masks only prevent you from spreading the virus, not prevent you from getting it (like the medical masks). Its a total fashion play. Saying they will donate 1 mask for every 1 sold is just to try to cover their *****.

We actually changed it to donating 3 masks per mask bought. Watch the HK social media today because we are shipping out the first 1000 masks to local hospitals and frontline workers.

The HK anti-dust masks are made in the USA also so they cost a lot more than $1 to make.

Anthrax is making and donating masks for free.

HK should charge $5 and Id buy 10 and give some to my neighbors.

$20 is a scumbag cash grab

You do understand the concept of..... If we prevent people from spreading the virus it will prevent other people from getting the virus?

Not the same though, Anthrax is donating all production to medical professionals in need that I've seen, HK is donating masks and selling some to offset costs with some fun prints. I bought a few, if I'm gonna wear a mask I might as well have space cats on it. If you don't want a mask with prints just cut up some tighty whities and wear that.

As far as I know, Anthrax is based in Europe. So I imagine their masks will be going to help locally there. HK is in California? So, likely, they'll be going to help here. Maybe take it easy.

So all the other companies are doing a ton then to help during this time? Companies need to survive. Many paintball companies have gotten their revenue grinded down to nothing already from this. Ive literally seen N95 10 packs selling for $550 on ebay so Im not exactly burning the torch over the price. HK employs like a dozen people, if this helps keep them in business, viable, AND helps limit the spread of the disease, how can you possibly have issue with that?

Dont explain yourself to the dopes on here. I clearly said it was 2 even back when it was two and people still wouldnt take 5 seconds to read that and went right to assumption.

Good for them. Good for HK. Good for everyone who is willing to shutdown even 1% of their production to do something for others. 90% of business' in the US right now are laying off a ton of their employees and hording money and supplies, you really want to fault HK for trying to find ways to keep people paid and help?

You are right, Anthrax is doing the right thing. Once medical people start getting sick, we all are ****ed. hk can suck a wiener.

I have plenty of n95 masks so Im good but I kinda wanna run around with a bandana like the wild wild west.

its merely them continuing to adapt the strategy as data is taken in and the transmission, symptoms, virulence and prognosis of COVID-19 is documented.

Also people panic bought toilet paper. Panic would have gotten all the good masks horded and not available for medical staff.

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.
