If I recall correctly, they were told to shut down.

888-Paintball and 800-Paintball were basically fronts for National Paintball Supply. NPS would use these fronts to sell their products, while denying other stores items. Basically reaping the profits from the retail market while snuffing the competition out.

They got called out on it, and the retail operations went away.

Pumpker'd; (V.) When a pump player runs up and shoots you at point blank range because you thought 20bps made you good.

I used 888 paintball before. Then when I looked at their variety compared to ActionVillage, I decided to go to AV every time.
