We'll sir, they're correct about one thing.... It will indeed change the hobby forever! And... may even bring airguns into the same fold as firearms—I trust not!

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.

At 1:00 am I saw that. I am sort of excited but a bit put off at the same time. You know, mixed feelings.

The good:

1. More folks airgunning
2. Probably a Great Leap Forward in technology as companies want to take advantage.
3. More Airgun choices (boggles the mind)
4. Maybe big Airgun events in my lovely State of California.

The not so awesome:
1. More folks airgunning with more accidents, crime and politicians passing more anti-Airgun laws.
2. The NASCAR-ization of Airgun shooting.

Probably more but I need more coffee first.

Promotion .. Money .. Greed to be the next big thing, while the FEW may profit, if history tell us a thing is that the MANY will suffer in the end.
Yup bring awareness to the masses, more stupid people start doing stupid things etc etc etc
