I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

This listing should probably go away, or at least get renamed.

The Fortitude is being given away as a member incentive. We've moved the ending date for the guesses forward, because Pyramyd Air won't have the airgun in stock until March 18 or there about. So check the contest forum.

That happens quite often.  But it will be released.

Let's see, there was a certain Big Bore that had dates slip, and slide, and sputter in, in limited tiny numbers. Price started low, and kept on climbing... Let's see what was that thing called? oh yeah, Epox Badger which appears to be no longer offered for sale, at least on AirGunDepot.

In the software industry we call this Vapor Ware!

That's a fact!

Last year we had three near-vapors that I can think of - the Gauntlet, the regged Marauder and the Umarex 700fpe watchamacallit.   It seems the industry trend nowadays is to publish when all you have is a napkin drawing!  It seems like a dubious marketing scheme to me, customers get frustrated waiting and go buy something else.

I hear ya, by the time the airguns get released allot of the hype and excitement about it has died down. Seems like it would hurt the sales some, especially in such a fickle market that we have nowadays. But then again, I don't run a multimillion dollar business either :)

P.S. Sorry Alan, guess this post has gone way off track.

Who cares.

I'm not one to get out of shape about "stealing" a thread, because sometimes, the steal is much more valuable than the original post. This one is no exception.

The problem now, is what to do if or when the Fortitude is dead in the water? I'll cross (Crosman?) that bridge when it comes.
