Two points, I don't want to get shot and it's too expensive.
- Offer colors that wont get me shot by an officer thinking I have an assault rifle (Blue, red, yellow, pink, purple, neon green, orange).
- Something in all carbon fiber or black will end up with me on the news looking like swiss cheese.
- Supply orange tips for barrels, at that price point its not hard to throw that safety feature in.
Also, if I can do the same thing for 1/3 the price it's not really viable. A SNAP and hopper combo is maybe $50 at the most, versus $210 for a kit that doesn't even get you all the way there (still need a shell). Let alone someone could grab an Artifact kit for $50 shipped, get a year worth of darts, and still be under Xplorer's price point.
To put this into perspective, just one of their completed blasters costs more than the equivalent of 5 months rent for me.
