A Distributor Ramps Up on Palladium Product

More good news. Kevin received a call the other day from one of Palladium’s distributors who wanted to let us know that he had stopped carrying the FULL line of Palladium products a few years back, but due to popular demand, especially over the last 8-12 months, he is going to start carrying our entire game line again. Maybe things are slowly turning around in some places.
