Stolen Marker Alert

A few years ago, a move resulted in me putting all of my paintball gear and a lot of my possessions in long term storage. During that time, my unit was burglarized and a few of my prized guns taken.

Friday night, while checking out the “Black Friday Sales” threads I noticed a gun that bore a striking resemblance to one of those was stolen from me several years ago. The seller (Long Beard) and I exchanged a lot of PM's and determined that he had bought the entire lot of my stolen guns off of Craigslist back in April 2013.

Long Beard has been extremely helpful in figuring things out and still has the PPS Classic Finish PUG & Pepperball Tib-8 (black chrome slide). Unfortunately, he has already sold a few of them off.

I'm looking for ANY information on the guns. Long Beard & the current owners are definitely not at fault in any way but I would like the opportunity to recover them if possible. A few of them have a lot of personal value to me and are very missed. However, I wouldn't expect anyone to take a loss on them either.

The guns:

Black/Silver Splash VSC Phantom
This Phantom was my “bury it with me” gun. I won it in a contest on the PHOG back around 2002. It was my main marker and was heavily modified and customized. I also have the rest of the matched splash parts in my kit. If I could only recover one gun then this would be it.

SOLD by Long Beard in this thread:

PPS Sidetube Long Barrel PUG
I changed this gun over to direct air to a Female Stab on bottomline but still have the original 12 gram quickchanger in my parts box. Unfortunately, the matching Armson was parted out and sold already.
This is also one of my main shooters and is dearly missed.




California Air Grey Ghost - Complete & Museum Quality Mint. The thieves stripped it of the period correct matching red dot.

That's a bummer. That was one of the very first one piece feeds that Punisher produced.

That is really upsetting. Respect to you for trying to retrieve the markers without hurting the unsuspecting buyers.

well if its that important to you i can get the feed back most likely. Guy at my local field still uses it quiet often on his.

Also i wont say no if you give me something of a fair offer on it after i see if i can get the feed back. My youtube channel is filled with it being used in good hands, iv got my enjoyment out of it.

If you cant then ill just hold on to it till i have to sell it and ill come find you first

I appreciate the consideration. I'd definitely be interested in the feed.

I'd also be interested in working out something for the whole package. I've got a fair amount of gear. If you let me know what you are looking for then we might be able to make a trade.

Any chance of setting up a secret santa fund to help Dave buy back his guns from any fellow members that may have ended up with them? I know I owe him for beer and for turning me on... to pump play. Yeah, turning me on to pump play... I won't be able to contribute until Wed, but would gladly contribute.

I'm friends with Longbeard and he feels pretty bad about the whole situation... I'd help out if I can. I hope this all gets worked out.
