    Yes we have had them out for a while now and we are selling more than we expected. Paintballers generally don't buy our compressors though.

    With all of my nearest shops closed now, I would be screwed without my Shoebox.

    I'm probably going to have to get one for when I move. Have NO idea where the nearest store is and going out to the field is not an option every time I need air.

    I plan on picking up one of the Freedom8 units, I could really use it for R&D on the new stuff I'm working on...

    Quick math. Generous variables: 30 minutes one way = 40 mile round trip. Vehicle averages 20mpg. Gas is $3.50 per gallon. Air refill on one tank costs $3.00. That's $10 to fill your tank, total. So, after eliminating 40 times in a year of going there to fill your tank, your Shoebox has paid for itself.

    Oh yeah, and eliminating all those "I tried to test it but I only had 300 psi in my tank" or "I'd make a quick shooting vid but I'm out of air" posts = priceless

    The Shoebox will still have residual value no matter what you do with it so assume you could sell it at any time for 25% of it's price. Your payback would actually be much faster.

    If I didn't have access to a 5k psi compressor any time I wanted, within a 25 minute drive, for free, I'd have one of these in my shop already.

    Still thinking about one just to cut out the 25 minute drive. Though, it's not really been a problem.

    Not to be rubbing it in anybodys face or anything but around where I play, both my local field and largest local pro shop have teamed up and for $10 I get unlimited 24/7 4500psi air fills for a year. I feel like I am very well off with this deal
