Bob “Flex-Hone” Fowlie of Brush Research Manufacturing

I met with Bob “Flex-Hone” Fowlie of Brush Research Manufacturing in October 2012 and we recorded several videos on his involvement in paintball during the 80s and early 90s.

In this interview Bob talks about playing paintball in Southern California, the team he played on, “Who are Those Guys?” Mercenary Service’ and the Flex-Hone for Paintball.
