Chris Haggin was a co-owner of Pacific Paintball (and later Kapp) with his brother Richard Mansfield.
This interview was from a VHS of raw footage recorded by KTFY at Paintball Hill’s Store Wars III (c. 1992) and given to me by Tony Meno who used to work for Pacific.
From this video you can tell how excited Haggin is about the introduction of mass produced semi automatics over the last year (1991-1992).
Haggin was co-owner of Pacific Paintball (Kapp) from focused mainly on accessories and custom modifications for Autocockers for the next ten years following this interview.
At the point of this interview I’m not sure if Pacific Paintball had started offering their first large run of a product, the Smoothie Bolt for cockers.
Tony Meno talks more about Smoothie bolt in the interview I did with him over the summer (which I’ll be editing eventually).
The Pacific Paintball patches in this video likely came from Tony as well. The Outta Control patch I photographed from Glenn Palmer’s (of http://www.palmer-pursuit.com/ ) collection at the end of July 2013.
