Every event we throw, we get bombarded with controversial emails about individuals swapping out PTW cylinders in
the field to break FPS rules.  When holding public events, you cannot guarantee the type of individuals who will
show up, but you can guarantee a certain level of safety.  And that is all we're trying to do.  While we do
understand that there are outstanding members of the community who own these, there are also those who aren't so
"outstanding" and it is because of those individuals that we have decided that it is easiest and in everyone's
best interest to "just say no." NAM philosophy is, if you can fork over near $1500+ for a PTW, you can more than
afford the $25 for a rental gun that shoots within the FPS limits (see below for rental info).  For those owners
of PTWs who state "yeah, but it's not that easy to swap them out!" or, "That's highly impractical!" We'll dispel
that myth by offering this video from AATV's complete review of the Systema PTW.  Note the ease and length of
time that it takes them to swap out the cylinder:

RENTALS: What if I don't have a stock gun?  Rentals will be available for $25 per person and will include an AEG,
freshly charged battery and 1-HiCap full of BBs.  Contact kingsensei@aol.com to secure your rental.
