Saturday Paintball Reruns...


Have I mentioned I'm kinda old school? Back when I got hooked on paintball Automags and Autocockers ruled the paintball world. Autocockers were always a mystery to me. Everything I know about them I pretty much learned by mistake. I've always considered them cantankerous and ornery but I always had a few hanging on the pro-shop wall and in pieces on my work bench just on the off chance Bud Orr paid a visit (yeah, right!!).



I lost interest in them right around the time Mr Orr retired from Worr Game Products and the K2 business conglomerate took over production. It was about that same time that the Autococker was raped of its old school charm and became just another line on a business chart at a stock holder's meeting. Autocockers disappeared from my pro-shop wall (all except MY cocker) and I joked with my shop Manager how embarrassed I would be if Bud Orr ever paid a visit (yeah, right!!).

A few months ago I dragged a dusty box of old school Autococker parts out of a closet and started piecing together a couple of guns. With a few Ebay purchases I was able to put together a half dozen pre-2k oldies that I proudly displayed on my pro-shop wall.

Just in time, too. Bud Orr paid a visit to the shop today (no kidding!!).

Thats pretty cool. I wish I could have met him. I've built a few of his creations, including a Talon-cocker.
