That nelspot never needs lube, shoots 2,000 ball per second, never needs reloaded, doesn't require an air source and when the paintball hits somebody the result is the same as if Chuck Norris round house kicked them.
He nick named the gun Reggie.

[QUOTE=russc;2111903]I'm going for the Ironmen patch,
QUOTE]

Actually that's not a vintage Ironmen patch. I believe that was made in the mid 90's. I would know, I had the original Ironmen patch made back in March of 1987. Some here know who I am, I owned Diablo Venture Games, the original Ironmen paintball field in which I was an early member of the team, if you can call it a team back in the early days.

Here is the original 1987 War (Red color) patch I had made.

Notice the letters underneath the x-bones, they stand for Stalk, Kill, Win. The patch being sold was more likely made right before or after the big fight for the team between the 2 team prima Donna's (Bob Long and Dave Youngblood).

Here is the original hand drawn artwork and receipt. Yeah before desktop computers and programs were affordable.

But if you really want a vintage original Ironmen patch, this would be it and it's my favorite. It was hand made by a neighbor lady on her machine.

The following 2 pics were taken at my field and published in the old Frontline magazine. The first one is me laying on the ground changing CO2's and the
2nd one is of Mike (Machinegun) Baird. Notice we are still wearing our original hand made patches.

Interesting postscript to the Ironmen patch story. I received a call from one of the lawyers representing Bob or Dave; I dont' remember which. Asking if I was the original maker of the War patch and if I going to to claim the rights to it (It seems they were fighting over the patch) I told him that I'm not an Ironmen any more and want nothing to do with what's going. That if anyone had any claim to the patch, he needed to contact Rick Baird, my original Captain and the only actual Iron worker of the team for which the team was named for. Funny, in the years after I left the team (1988) I came across several members of the newer Ironmen teams that had no idea what SKW stood for or even knew those letters were part of the Ironmen history. All they new were that the CA stood for California.

There is still one very rare Ironmen patch that I have not seen in a long time. Its the original War patch but in green background. I was not part of that but I beleive those were worn by the early tournament team members, but don't qoute on that.
