all right, some shots of the recovered automag loot! still MIA is a pump-milled powerfeed body and an intelliframe with a set of lukes milled aluminum grips. they should have survived, but we haven't dug them up yet. i'm hoping they'll turn up once we start getting all of the ash and debris moved off-site. click for full-res:



from left to right: valve from the rt classic (as seen above), classic valve, x-valve and a minimag valve.


left to right: pump-milled powerfeed, vert-feed emag, the rt classic (with hardline), another powerfeed with a hypermag valve stuck inside, and a minimag body.


rails: classic rail from the toast minimag, spare pump-milled and spare classic w/ vasa.


barrels for days...


next step will be to scrub everything down and see if i can't resurrect something!

Wow!! sorry for the loss. I don't know any of you personally but Good fields and field owners are real tough to come by these days , at least in my neck of the woods. I say we send donations to help out. I'm sure most of us can't afford much but would be willing to help out a fellow baller get his field back on its feet.

there will (hopefully!) be a chance to do so in the relatively near future.

Jeez! Hot enough to melt silver solder to the point of feeds falling off. I'm going to go have a cry over the destroyed KP. I wonder how warped some the parts are.

That group Friday was the last scheduled group until the spring. We took the 20' net down today prepping for winter. Now just have to get rid of these Tippmann loaners and get a more air-efficient rental fleet.

We'll have to try for more walk-on traffic alot this next year to balance the books in this recovery. We'll figure that out as it gets closer to spring.
