middle range guns are in a slum right now, high end guns still are doing well, the problem is guns like the ions and others have made getting a fast shooting marker even cheaper and alot of the older blind electros have fallen off the deep end

it's because peopel are realizing the poor quality of shockers.
I believe that the low prices are because of the overwhelming flood of new markers. Not that it's bad, it's simply how economics works.

why would you expect to get what you paid for out of them? you know their value will drop.

i dont know, if you buy a gun and halo or a gun and pulse for 100 bucks its more or less profit for you because i know people that would buy a shocker from me for 200 dollars, and you get something else out of the deal...

Paintball guns are like cars, they are definately not an investment. The money you make off one sale can and usually will be lost on the next one. And the few that retain or gain value will only do so after many multiples of years.
