Interesting development.

I'm at work right now, so I can't watch the video, but I'll be interested to see what they have to say. So long as Tippmann continues to listen to their customer base and provide the quality and reliability that we've come to know over the past 27 (almost 28) years, I'm sure that they'll continue to lead the industry.
