Lou “Gramps” Grubb with the Gold Nightmare on the cover of APG

Meant to post this a couple days ago, but here is the cover scan from the October 1988 issue of Action Pursuit Games which pictures Lou “Gramps” Grubb holding Gramp and Grizzly’s gold plated Nightmare.

Mike and Lou showed me this Gold Nightmare that they were given by Aldo Perrone for their work, modifying Nightmares into constant Air Guns and the suggestions the brought to him at that years shot show in Las Vegas. This nightmare still looks brand new today, no major flaking. They were afraid to play with it and while looking it over I was almost afraid to touch it.

Mike writes on facebook, “That Nightmare is still the same as the day we were presented with it. No, no leaks, but weve never fired a ball thru it. Im afraid of tearing it down for cleaning if a ball broke.”
