The latest rumor related to the tempest in a teapot (so far) that is the curious relationship between the MS and Turkish small arms maker Sarsilmaz, is that some of the Millennium's big name sponsors aren't going to show for the event. Ostensibly the excuse will be logistics and the related costs but the whispered subtext is that nobody wants the "real" gun association. Particularly not right now.
Given the nature of paintball politics the opposite could as easily be true. The Sarsilmaz "taint" may simply be a good excuse not to have to deal with the logistics and costs of displaying at the event in Turkey.
VFTD has made direct inquiries and if any of the companies mentioned in this batch of rumors is willing to go on the record I'll let y'all know.
CLARIFICATION: When I say companies mentioned in this batch of rumors I mean companies named in the rumor and intentionally left out of this posting.
