Sounds like a mixup of stories? According to this Jon-Erik Hexum died that way.

Reminds me of having "roman candle fights" as kids.

What was the system that the army used in the 70s? I remember the infamous "Navy Gun" patent covering an electro-pneumatic paintball shooter used for training.

MILES gear? Still in use actually. Still sucks too, easy to manipulate and cheat with as well.

No, back before MILES, and before paintball, the military had a pretty neat paintball gun back in the 70s for training/simulation

You can see the patent here. Its notable because it had a paintball-style hopper, and was electropneumatic with eyes, and semi/full auto, etc! It came up alot during the whole smart parts hullabaloo.

You also had all sorts of squib & blood ball shooters in hollywood before paintball. Most know of the Sweeney gun, but you had all sorts before that.

Another one that was used in the late 70s: (skip to 17:38 )

You look at some of that stuff, and its wierd that paintball was so primitive when we started playing it.

Ah, way before me then. I knew about the Navy bit but hadn't seen anything like that for the Army. Good stuff.
