.50cal Gains a Foothold!

Okay, more like a "toehold".

It seems that Arnold Indoor Paintball in Montreal, Quebec is now allowing the use of .50cal paintball markers on their field. Given that they're a field paint-only operation, they also sell .50cal paintballs to go with the markers.

Does this mean that .50cal is starting to catch on? Only time will tell. But given that GI Milsim, the main pushers of .50cal, are based in Montreal as well, it may just be a local deal struck between the two companies.

I'll be at Arnold's Big Game, Saddam's Gold, next weekend. I'll see if I can catch up with Arnold himself and see what brought on their acceptance of .50cal paintball gear.

More to come...
