It doesn't need to get any crazier than that.

In my opinion, I think it is the greatest mill job on an autococker and it still looks amazing on an LV1.

An "After Baggage claim" theft would mean that the thief probably recognized the brand of the bag and assumed (correctly) that there would be valuable gear inside. Or, the person recognized the player, then saw the bag, and acted.

If it was before, then it might just be lost (it happens at the most inopportune times), and the Airline should be able to move heaven and earth to find it.

For future reference, any "security device" on a piece of luggage with a zipper can be bypassed with a ballpoint pen. If you are traveling with expensive equipment, or valuables of any kind, get a large Pelican-style case and two padlocks. Physically walk it to TSA's X-ray check and, if they ask, open it for them before locking it back up.
Honestly not quite sure, I want to say after though from what I gathered speaking with him. It would have to be a PE bag since they are sponsored by them though.

I personally do not think it looks anything like that. It looks very much like the twistr cockers that BPS did years ago, this was their way of bringing it back.

As much as i hope he gets his gear back, it is most likely gone. Either someone who works at the airlines took it because they either knew what it was or just assumed it may have worthwhile gear in it, or 2 someone saw it pop out on the baggage claim and walked away with it. If it was a non paintballer looking to make a quick buck, it is either at a pawn shop on got pitched because they really don't know what to do with it. It's a shame that people still act like this and steal ****.

Or buy a used smartphone and activate the plan for the month you are traveling. Use the find my phone features or app to find it.

It sounds like Nick's bag got put on an earlier flight. He went to the baggage claim when he arrived and the bag wasn't there (there was just one bag circling) and the airline hadn't pulled it off and put it aside.

Nick's hope is that a paintball team grabbed it by mistake.

If anyone knows anything about the bag, please let me know. We'll obviously keep it private. And Nick doesn't care who has it, he just really wants it back, no questions asked.

Thanks to all the guys out there looking!

Of course, it was American Airlines in both situations that were the carriers and neither time did they show any concern. With Detroit Infamous, they kept deflecting complaints. I know come Aug/Oct I'll not be flying with them. It's getting ridiculous to the point we'll have to lobby to make these things legal as carry-on or buy non-paintball gearbags to camoflauge the bags.

The dye gearbags have a metal rod in the gear compartment of them that houses the handle piece.. When I flew with my marker I put a bike lock through the trigger frame and hooked it to the metal rod in the gearbag.. It was clear that they went through it. But i feel this would work effectively, unless they decide to take your whole bag of course.

This really sucks. I hope he finds it, as that gun is absolutely beautiful. I personally would get a smaller gearbag and check it as a carry on for the future. I know my gun isn't near as beautiful or worth near as much, and if I had to fly with it, that is the route I would take. Airlines are ridiculous nowadays. My cousin had his Brand New Ipad with tons of his work files on it (graphics designer). Luckily, find my Ipad was on and they tried to reset it and couldn't do anything with it and he got it back, from the airline employee who tried to steal it. Good Luck Man, I really hope you find it!

It helps that it is a one of a kind gun missing in an area where there are a thousand extra PbNation users more than usual right now.

I went out of my way to contact the people that run this to just ask them to share the posts on facebook to help find it. Instead they put it on the front page, there is no reason to be angry about that. This is not just an every day gun you can buy off the shelf. This was a limited run gun with a custom finish, something that makes it easy to spot and a huge loss. Not saying his stuff is more important than another's, but it would make since that they want to help find something for a player who is a public figure and the face of this sport. It helps that there are huge amounts of players in the area for this event, easy to spot a one of a kind gun.

I apologize that it bothers you they are trying to help me find it for me. To be fair, it is normally pro players you see on the front page when they win a title or an event.
