Just saw this on the Nation: TAG Paintball broken into:

Quote:
This past weekend when I arrived at the paintball field I work at (TAG Paintball , Hollister, CA. We found that 6 of our shipping containers has been broken into as well our airsoft and team storage units. We had part of our rental fleet taken as well as several of our classic markers that were in storage for the museum we planned on building.... below is a list of the markers we have found to be missing as well as some of our other gear. If you see some of these markers pop up on craigs list or ebay please let me know via PM or Direct email at Jason@tag-paintball.com or email the field owner Roland at roland@tag-paintball.com

Gear:


-Brand new Empire Sniper Green
-WGP Ranger
-WGP Sight Ranger
-A Grey Ghost
-Brown Camo F1 Illustrator
-6 Rentals: Piranhas w/300 round hopper, 48ci 300opsi tank


We also got hit for personal property as well as our power tools... so much for getting our new field finished.....

Thank you for your help
So keep the CL eyes open in the Hollister area.

Thanks for posting this No Mercy Ever.

One of the shipping containers they sacked was our MUSEUM
I have been collecting 'unobtainium' specimens for years.

Almost everything was either NIB condition or unique one-of-a-kind specimens.
Mainly 'wall-hangers' to display paintball history for posterity sake.

We are still doing an inventory sweep of the missing contents
(Dear Lord, this is painful. It is taking a lot to hold it together)

Some of these were kept from our long history:
Bushmaster Deluxe, from '91 Black Diamonds, 2nd place World Champions.

Some were my personal guns:
Custom made PPS Super Stocker, off set feed, Battle Pump, Plated Grip with PMI rubber, Plated 12gr changer, Spiral Vented, etc.

This is the 3rd break-in 7 years.
Each cost a minimum loss of $15,000.

I simply can't explain the pain this has caused.
(I think 'Bullseye' has taken on a new meaning)

I am offering a handsome reward.
You will remain anonymous, if you want.

Holy crap, Roland! I SO hate people sometimes.

I very much hope that you're able to recover the priceless items that were taken from you.

Do you have any photographs of some of the particularly unique items? I just mean, we can't call the cops because a Grey Ghost goes on sale, you know? And myself, I don't know what a '91 Black Diamond Bushmaster looks like. A picture of the camo Illustrator, if it's a unique pattern that could act like a finger print, could be GOLD.

May you catch the unmentionables who did this to you. To us. I for one would've loved to see that museum.

They stole all of those?!? That sounds like an "inside" job to me- meaning somebody knew what was in there, and where it was stored. Your "whodunnit" list needs to start with people who knew about all of that.

And, just as a preemtive covering, I have a similar very rare desert camo Illustrator, including the matching 7-oz tank and barrel. I've had it for over ten years, and I dusted it off this summer hoping to fix it up over the winter. So if I show pics, I didn't swipe yours.

Doc.

Yeah, that doesn't sound like a couple of nervous crackheads looking for a quick pawn. Invest in a couple of CCTV cameras, and maybe don't mention it to the staff, if that's legal in your area.

Doc/Chad: We narrowed down the list of suspects a bit.
Axel: We are are working on that as we speak

I just updated the above posted list
(found some stashed away in another conex, yahoo).

What really hurts my heart is the 'unobtainium' older stuff that is worthless on the field to play with (and was in NIB condition). Maybe worth $60 on ebay.

Once the perps discover that they are unique and worthless in the marketplace...chances are they will dispose of them (Ugh!).

I have talked with reformed thieves to get into the mindset, very disturbing but enlightening. Bottom line: I was a target of opportunity. They really didn't know what to take. (yes, one of the crew did play paintball at TAG to guide them a little) but hap hazard.

I feel myself turning into 'that crotchety old man' that trust no one now. I see myself suspecting everyone. Bummer.

Today is another day and I am starting the rebuilding process all over again.

Blessings,
Roland

Such a bummer,scumbags probably didnt even know what they took.I play at alot of "outlaw" fields and other local public fields in the santa cruz/monterey bay area too,definately keep an eye out for you,some pretty unique pieces there so theyll be hard to miss,really hope you get them back
BTW still miss your old field in Felton where I live,played with Santa Cruz Paintball and Marauders(my current) teams there around 1995
PS posted link on my Facebook as I contact local players there
