Either '99 or '00, I was at Cobra Paintball in Carlsbad, CA, and saw 2 Micro's for the first time. one was golden nights, the other was blue nights. both were double triggers, and both had matched trigger shoes. I didn't get either one, because I was a newbie, they were r/t's, they were expensive for a lowly e-3, and all Camp Pendleton served at the time was co2. I bought my first classic in '04 or '05. It had a small leak, and I ended up using it anyway. Dunno why I stuck with 'em, but I now have 6, and have sold 2.
