about the Bubba approach.
there may be a lot of things "wrong" with the big gun. Consider the R and D that went into it. How long before that thecnology starts showing up in other Crosman product lines? They are trying to get some crossover into the PB crowd, maybe finally convincing them that airguns arent wimpy peashooters and the Rogue has the manly power real men should be shooting (I jest, but you get the point).
Other than the effort and money it took to actually produce the Rogue (and current inventory levels), what are they out? R and D they are doing anyway, market researchis always ongoing, and I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Crosman was responding to our collective whining about a big bore gun. I think after they get the isues we are seeing ironed out, the PB crowd has had time to digest what the thing is capable of, and thepricing settles at an agreeable price point, Rogue acceptance will grow.
Guess my disagrement stems from the my perspective of the Rogue not being wrong, but thats its _radical_ in just about every way from anything else we've seen from our good friends in NewYork.....
