He nick named the gun Reggie.

Sad news indeed.

I'm told he had been posting some old-time paintball photos on his Facebook page. Could somebody with Facebook please save/archive those?

I met Colin through my friend Joel, who happened to be Colin's 2nd employee ever, when he still worked out of his home on Mansfield st. in Los Angeles. He'd hired Joel to assist with flex honing and assembly on his first production run of Grey Ghosts. He actually gave Joel a pre-production Ghost as partial payment.






His house reminded me of Doc Brown's from "Back to the Future." There were neat looking gizmos strewn about the place. I remember him wearing a baseball cap for some reason. I spoke to him briefly one more time, when he lived in San Diego. May he rest in peace.

I recorded this quick video with Colin Thompson about his bottomline asa in early March. He had a ton of energy and was excited to remember back to his days in paintball, working at Conquest and Paintball Connection.
I'll always regret not going down to visit Colin again sooner, he contributed so much to paintball's early evolution, I didn't even know he was responsible for designing the first bottomline.

Can't help but agree with this statement, an excellent video indeed that will help us remember the man.

You always heard that Colin Thompson was a perfectionist, and I must say, when I see one of his grey ghosts I always say to myself "that is one gorgeous nelson".

Not to take anything away from the phantom (great gun) but I always asked myself if the grey ghost line competed more directly with the phantom (colour options, stock feed, removeable barrel) all these years, would the phantom have had the popularity it does today or would it have been replaced with the ghost? One can only imagine...

RIP to a great contributor to the paintball world.
