I found this Nasty Boys shirt from the early 1990s a few weeks back. I’ve always wondered about Nasty Boys and who was behind the company but I’ve never really been able to locate any details.

Recently, Erick Lambarri, who grew up playing paintball in the San Diego area, saw a photo of this shirt I posted on Instagram and mentioned the name Stanley Burgis.

Erick mentioned that Burgis also operates Mr Paintball out of Escondido and that Colin Thompson of Lapco Paintball worked for Burgis for a while in the mid 1990s between Paintball Connection and other jobs.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s Nasty Boys introduced a variety of injection molded paintball items including one early variation of a bulk feed loader and their own nicely styled tubes (which may have been the same mold that was later used on the Fat Boy tubes). Nasty Boys also produced a line of soft goods including headcovers (worn under masks) and harnesses.

I’ve reached out to a Stanley Burgis on LinkedIn but have yet to hear back. If you have more details on the history of Nasty Boys please post what you remember.
