Store Wars 3 (c. 1992) interview with Gary Bennett, Owner and Operator of Paintball Hill in Pope Valley California. 

This is part one of two from a 20 minute uncut interview segment that I edited.

Thanks to Tony Meno for the footage and Don Howard for the Paintcheck Field of the Year scan from May 1992.

In part 1 Gary talks about starting Paintball Hill, the recognition Paintball Hill has received from the players in Northern California and why he started the Store Wars Game.

Part 2 will be up tomorrow where Bennett talks about who plays, paintball safety and discusses some statistics.
