Well, as I remember, back around 1995, Palmers was having financial problems. They were dumping huge amounts of money into the Blazer project... which had been dragging for years and years, and it was still not on the market yet.

On top of that, the business was losing money that was "unaccounted for". Palmer blamed Debone. Debone said that Palmer was wasting money. That went around in circles for a while, but its Palmers name on the sign, so he fired Debone over it. He left paintball.

A bit of a loss, as he was one of the few guys that did custom work on guns other than cockers.
