In the anniversary issues of Paintcheck there are sections focusing on Paintball Hall of Fame inductees for that year.  In 1990 Alexander was nominated for Manufacturer of the year.

In the short write up Alexander explains a little about his business operation in Southern California (Skirmish Store, Line SI’s production line and his field) as well as his future plans of moving to Colorado.

  1. Is he okay?
    I practically ‘lived’ at Skirmish the store! Those were some of the most wonderful times of my life. Henry was a really great guy. I really hope he is doing okay!
    I really loved the paintball community. Some of the best times, and best people. I remember those days fondly.
    I am a Senior Support Engineer now, and live at the beach in Venice. If he needs a place to stay, or just chill out – he is welcome to. I hope Henry is doing good these days.

    I had a dream about him last night, and I was
    looking for any news about him on the Internet!
    Can someone contact me?

Kate Alexander is # 2 ..Jerry is 3 and unfortunately I draw blanks on the rest. I see mention in the comments of Ken Kidd. Hey Kidd if you’re out there look me up. Same for you John Ladd. Those were special times. Best to everyone

Possible Custom Jeff Orr Minicocker c.1995-96

A look at what I believe is a custom Jeff Orr Minicocker that was likely machine in the mid 1990s and then re built with updated components around 2000.
