2012-9-15-dogs-or-war-tornado-part-3

As a follow up to yesterday’s information on the Tornado by Palmers Pursuit Shop, here is a scan from the February 1992 issue of Paintball Magazine.
This picture was part of a write up on the 1991 Bay City Open.

Here is a close-up crop on the Tornado pictured in the 1991 Bay City Open article in the February 1992 issue of Paintball Magazine.

Taking a closer look at the blown up picture we can see this gun is actually a Bore Drop Line SI Bushmaster with the barrel retaining plate rotated to the left hand side from the original location on the bottom of the body.
The end of the barrel has a Palmer’s muzzle break.

The article didn’t say but I would guess the player picture might be from Dogs of War? This Tornado isn’t the same gun owned by Lori Wilcox because her gun is Breech drop with a non removable barrel and this gun is Bore Drop with a removable polished barrel.

Edit: Realized this is a modified Bushmaster because of the barrel retaining plate and not a Taso.

A Minicocker similar to early BBT SFLs

Here is a tiny Minicocker I found that has some similarities to an early gen SFL autocockers. Really bad shape but neat round cuts.

Airgun Design Turbo Valve engraved Sheridan Long Barrel

AGD's Turbo Valve made its way into thousands of Sheridan based PMI pump markers, but very few factory engraved Piranha Long Barrel models were produced.

SPEW II (Spring Pump Event West!)

Gilbert Martinez (Gillymonster on MCB) is organizing the second iteration of his (hopefully)  annual pump game in Bakersfield.  The game will be March 17th to 18th. Last year we had a great time and enjoyed pump play both days, a great feast Saturday night and an tasty but windy breakfast Sunday morning.

Find some more information here: SPEW II in Bako, March 17-18

Unfortunately I didn't have any game pictures, Heinous took some good ones though!
