    I believe this definitely belongs here as this is certainly news pertaining to all of us her on TNet as many of us are indeed, bazooka owners. And this is definitely some sad news. Sorry to hear Chris and Todd! Thanks for the good run, and the awesome new toys! Hopefully someone is able to take them over someday and not only continue their legacy, but improve upon it. I know i've seen some awesome innovations from you TNet'rs... Here's your chance



    ON that note... Anway way to change the thread title to pertain what the thread is related to?

    No disrespect to you Gldguy, but I question the genuineness of that
    post.

    Bazooka's are the hottest selling sluice on the market, and they are selling
    them as fast as they can produce them. Makes no sense at all that they aren't
    producing a decent profit. My neighbor even got them stocked at the hardware
    store he works at, and they sell at full retail just about as fast as he can get
    them in.

    If it is legit...well, that sucks. There's no reason in the world that somebody can't
    make a decent living with that company, so I do hope someone picks it up (if they
    are actually closing).

    I ran a hookah lounge for a couple years and we were doing great until the owners wife decided the company's bank account was her personal piggy bank while she was pregnant. Hard to run a business when someone is siphoning off half the $$$ ya need to keep things movin.

    Agree with Sunshine - change title so that readers understand content of post. Sad day indeed. I got my Bazooka sniper last October from a shop in Montana - could not get hold of anyone at company. Really like how it works and would not trade it for anything. If this is true, sorry to see the company go. Am guessing that someone will pick up the rights to produce sometime this year-- too good of an idea to not be picked up.

    Hope it's not true. The sniper was definitely on my list. Just watch the prices on used go thru the roof. Here's another company that seemed to be doing fine and then...

    This one I can explain. His current suppliers raised prices for the key bits (valves, plunger seal) and he was losing $$ running the biz so it was time to make a change.

    I have a feeling the product will still be available sooner or later, but not under the same name..

    until dredging and high banking comes back, the bazooka is the best for moving lots of material with least amount of effort/classifying for my 20 acres. Im glad I got mine at Placerville hardware and didnt have to wait at all.......

    I would buy a used bazook over any other new sluice hands down. Until dredging becomes a reality in the mother load, Im sticking with the perfect setup on my claim, the bazooka sluice, a shovel, sierra blaster, a 5 gallon bucket seat and my fishing pole for my snack breaks

    Admin delete if not ok but just saw this thought I would post just invade

    I used to own a business and though money was flowing like crazy the profit margin began to shrink. I sold the business because of that. Maybe that is the case for the current owners. I was looking to buy a bazooka this spring, hopefully someone buys the company

    Just hope China doesn't get their hooks into it!

    Wouldn't mind building one from acrylic/polycarbonate if I could get the dimensions.

    There is a 36" sniper for sale at the hardware store In Arlington Washington, in a glass display case at the front of the store. Went there to get some electrical parts and had to smile when I saw it. Good luck to whoever gets it!

    Not a problem, software does not allow title changes after it is posted except by mods or admins.
