SplatMaster Pistols Promo Tape (c. 1989) by NSG with added credits

I purchased this as a VHS probably 8 years back and imported it from VHS about 5 years ago. Finally getting around to uploading it.

It’s a great video and yes if you haven’t played a game with all SplatMaster or all Rapides this is everything you have been missing.

Original Splatmaster VHS this video was imported from.

Bob Gurnsey confirmed this video is from 1989. Bob wrote me:
"Yes it was the early summer of 1989. Shortly after that Hot looking Splatmaster GTP car was racing at the MIAMI Grand Prix."

Airgun Design Turbo Valve engraved Sheridan Long Barrel

AGD's Turbo Valve made its way into thousands of Sheridan based PMI pump markers, but very few factory engraved Piranha Long Barrel models were produced.

The Prototype National Survival Games Rapide – c.1988

Fitting the features of the National Survival Games Rapide into Paintball culture of the late 1980s and how it succeeded as a follow up to the Splatmaster.

SPEW II (Spring Pump Event West!)

Gilbert Martinez (Gillymonster on MCB) is organizing the second iteration of his (hopefully)  annual pump game in Bakersfield.  The game will be March 17th to 18th. Last year we had a great time and enjoyed pump play both days, a great feast Saturday night and an tasty but windy breakfast Sunday morning.

Find some more information here: SPEW II in Bako, March 17-18

Unfortunately I didn't have any game pictures, Heinous took some good ones though!
