    As far as I know, thats the best place in Iowa to get airsoft gear. I usually go after I go to the Hawkeye game and they have a good selection and pricing and they actually airsoft, not just plink around with them like JAX did.

    Gear and some ammo is pretty good, they had some King Arms .2's last time I went, but their pricing on guns is insane, and most of that stuff has been there for a few years.

    i know, but everyone has to make their money, but you never know someone will buy it eventualy, and i saw an ICS there which was cool to get to pick up and get a feel for, might buy it after i get the money, after all it cant hurt to support a local store

    Great place if you need pouches quick. Fun to poke around inside too. Lots of neat stuff. Agreed on guns... pricey!

    You don't make any money if you don't flip merchandise. So, when you overprice an item and they become a wall hanger, well...you get no sales.

    Back in 2006, CC Showed up to the First Airsoft Trade show in MN. They priced their WELL's in the 280 dollar price range when at other tables TM we being sold for 300.00, new. You'd have figured they would have learned back then, but the owners are rather diminutive on what a good sales model is for airsoft.

    Very poor marketing plan, that is why they got left behind when other retailers took off with "reasonable" pricing.
