Angry Shocktech broken into (many one of a kind markers stolen)

Sometime between Sunday night and this morning the Shocktech Factory was broken into. Along with several computers, monitors, office and machining equipment, guns and other paintball related products our entire gun collection was stolen. Virtually all these guns are irreplaceable soon we will able to post a list of them, but for now we are asking anyone in the industry (local or otherwise) to please keep an eye open for these very unusual guns. Obviously if you can recover them we’ll gladly post a no questions asked reward. The collection represents quite possibly the world’s largest assembly of one of a kind paintball markers and our fear is that they will wind up in pawn shops and people’s hands that know nothing of their true value to the history of paintball. Many are original prototypes, or carry a serial number of 1. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I'm terribly sorry to hear that. You guys had an amazing collection or irreplaceable items. Please let us know more about what was taken so we can be on the lookout.

That pisses me off to no end. Sounds to me like the people responsible knew what they were looking for. Also seems like they would be paintball players. Sorry guys. I hope you find them and your guns

I find it hard to believe this was done by paintball players. I mean, anybody who has been around for more than a second will realize how famous and noticeable this collection was. I mean christ, if Im an art collector I dont think I would try to steal the Mona Lisa and put it over my fireplace.

Im guessing general douchebags broke in with the intent of taking anything of value (i e the monitors and computer equipment). Taking the gun collection, well that was just stupid. I pray that is the one thing that leads the cops to these jerk offs and they receive full punishment bestowed for grand theft.

These breakins are getting out of hand.

Bad enough things are slow, no business paintball or not needs this kind of crap right now.

It is my sincere hope that every single item is returned to you.

I completely agree. I also highly doubt it was a paintball player, because unless they already had buyers lined up there's no way to advertise unique guns like that without someone noticing. If anyone else on here is on any other forums (particularly paintball), let's help them out and spread the word. I wouldn't be surprised if these guys got caught...

These guys are terribly stupid. How do you sell one of a kind markers that are stolen? I hope everything gets recovered and these guys have to go 15 minutes in a confined space with Mike Bruno and the rest of the old school aftershock team. that will teach them.
