Keith Collins on Grendel Kahn and his 93 Minicocker

At So Cal Stock’s mechanical day in January 2016, Keith Collins showed me his classic WGP Minicocker that he purchased back around 1992-93.
Keith started playing around in the late 1980s, with a PMI Piranha as his first paintgun. He later purchased a Line SI Bushmaster around 1990. In 1991 Keith purchased his first semi automatic, a blue Autococker, and then moved to a Line SI Promaster in 1992. In 1993 he purchased his Minicocker pictured as well as a Grey Anodized B&M Sniper 3. In 1994 he bought a Minimag  and traded his Piranha for a Sniper 2.

This Mini is serial 1389 and instead of the standard green shorty WGP Minicocker barrel it came with a bright blue barrel.

During the late 1980s and 1990s, Keith frequented many of the Southern California fields. His home field for several of the early teams he played on was Fields of Honor.

In the video, Keith explains the timeline for the teams he played on, which included Grendel Kahn, Bushmasters and Team of Honor:
“The first [team I played on] was Grendel Kahn, we used to play up at Fields of Honor. Played againsts a lot of the Mafia guys, which, later on, we’d form [the Bushmaster with].
[I] played with them a bit, up through [1994], then did some Team of Honor work. Small Bushwacker’s stint for like a month, but there were other things to do.
And then [I] teamed up with Sonny [Phommarine] and a lot of the guys we played with here, on Broken Arrow.”

Keith played in the Wasaga Beach Paintball Adventure “Beach Blitz” Event in 1994 with the Bushmaster, which took place in Wasaga Beach, Canada. He sent me photos of this event a few years back. At this event the Bushmasters won Montneel Z-1s.
Keith remember the last year of Team of Honor as 1998.
