John Barber, of Who are Those Guys, pictured in APG May ’96

Here is a scan from the May 1996 issue of APG showing a member of the Wolf Pack with his Frank Gun (Landshark Gun?).

I’ve been trying to find a Wolfpack or original Landshark member to interview who still has their Frank/Landshark gun intact and can give an accurate account of the early days of Quest / Conquest.

Gilly goes into some details on Quest and Conquest in he and Danny Guardado’s upcoming interview but it would be really interesting to hear the perspective of a player who had Quest as their home field.

Supposedly the original Landsharks were based out of Quest and were the team Rob “Termite” Smith started on before “Who Are Those Guys.

Earon Carter was wearing a Landshark’s T-shirt last weekend at Jungle Island for the Oct 12th / Jack Wada Birthday stock game but I don’t think his T-shirt dated that far back (mid 80s-87?) and when Earon mentioned the Landsharks before he talked about Paul Vasquez “Hornet” pump gun as a Landshark gun.

William Kapes commented on this photo that the picture Who are those Guy’s player is John Barber.
“Dan, that is John Barber. He used a frank gun. he was still playing with it when I last played with him in 92 or so. And he did play with Termite and Senior. I met him through them and Earon and Jessica.”
And William goes on you write:
“[I don’t know his location], Its been almost 20 years since I’ve seen him. He pretty much had stopped playing but came out a few times right as stock games were starting to come back. There was a bit of an “old guy” resurgence at SC Village in 92-93 as people starting pulling out pump guns again and then modified stock guns.

I remember the first time I saw him drag out that gun it was still shooting like 330. Ah, those were simpler times”
