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.

Not a problem to try to help out a customer/friend and it fine that it's front paged just screwed up if front paged because of who he is IMO. He's a pro player and he probably isn't even out his own money because he got it for free anyhow lol.
It is good free advertisement though huh

Lots of people lose guns just as rare and as expensive, I personally lost a 1 of 1 csl and it never got front paged. People from nation help but the ones that helped had to search fir the thread to do so on their own free will and I more than appreciate what they did for me. I'm just saying that if you do it for one person you should do it for everyone. I'm a supporter to the sight and I don't even get treatment like you guys are

He is definitely out his own money on this. Even so that is not the point, the point is his stuff has been taken and he would like it back. I don't care about the advertising I just want to see the man get back all of his stuff. His personal belongings were in there as well.

I have a theory that maybe someone in chicago knew about the tournament so the day before he went to the airport and waited at baggage claim until he saw a paintball bag. I bet he snatched a few

So this guy joins the convo to make others upset??? A little strange if you ask me. What I find "nice" is that you don't show any compassion to a fellow player in thread where everyone else is doing just that. If you want attention go make a thread. If you don't care about what has happened to him then you can find the exit that way >>>>.

Do we have a screening process to open an account on PBN???

The nature of the front page prevents us from sharing everything. We can't spotlight every new product. We can't spotlight every missing item. We can't promote every event. There's just no way.

I'm sorry your gun was lost. But, your loss doesn't justify you coming in and trying to insult other people or rile them up. Show some respect.

Wow. That is a bummer. I remember when my first gun was stolen. I felt like crap for a week or more. I would walk around my local field looking at every one like they are all thieves. It sucked!

I agree with the post about shipping your gun. Putting a $2000 gun in a pretty PE bag just screams... STEAL ME! It sucks but that is the world we live in...

To the idiot sniveling about Pros getting special treatment... OF COURSE they do. That is one of the perks of putting in the time and effort of being at the top of their sport. I would like to welcome you to the real world, Hope you enjoy your stay...

Insult? I'm not gonna watch people come in here and talk **** when I'm in the right John. Your letting them have their say so I should be able to have mine. I made no personal comments til they personally attacked me and I never called anyone out of name like the guy above me did and must be accepted?

Dealers pay for front page advertise on pbn this guys getting free advertisement and a gun is lost/stolen everyday and nothing is ever posted on the front page til now. The guy doesnt even pay for a membership let alone advertisement

Do you honestly think I am advertising? You actually believe that the way I want to advertise would be over the loss of something I put hour of work into? I am here to help a man find what was taken. I don't advertise on this forum because I prefer older guns which I why you would see me on 3 other sites dedicates to those as a paying forum sponsor. Please stop making this about you and either help find this stuff or make your peace with the situation and don't say anything.

This thread didn't come about for nothing, there was over 240 shares on the status within 20 minutes of it posting. I am sorry you are upset over someone posting up a thread for this. If you have a problem take it to PMs. This thread is here to help find his property, not for complaining or accusations that I am doing this to benefit myself.

Did he fly into Midway or O'Hare? There are two airports in Chicago.

Midway is smaller and in the middle of a residential district, O'Hare is huge and in an industrial district.

The thief could be around either of these locations.

Professional photographers have started carrying starter pistols in their checked camera bags to prevent theft. Airports do not want to have theft of a "weapon". You may be able to do the same with a paintball marker (gun). You just have to declare it when checking the bag.

Pack a starter pistol in your checked luguage for better security

I think Lungilung deserves a nice little "vacation" from PBnation for a while.... at least til he can pull his head out of his ***. His actions and comments, and overall attitude, are COMPLETELY out of line...
with that being said...

This incident (the real incident at hand here) screams FOUL.... If the airline shipped the bag ahead of its owner, I feel they have been neglectful if they failed to secure it (left it running around on a baggage claim belt for, most likely, a couple hours???
Thats something I would think of doing if I WANTED something stolen. What was the airline thinking???
I'd definitely make a stink about it to them... and follow up with legal action if needed.

Granted I havent had to fly to an event, but the more I hear about this, the less and less I want to rely on ever flying my gear somewhere.

UPS to the hotel ahead of time, or utilize the vast networks that teams and sponsors have at their disposal to ship your gear to a local residence/ business/ field/ store, etc.

If you MUST fly with your gear.... does it REALLY need to be in a paintball gearbag?? Pack it in a normal suitcase and dont attract attention to its contents. This eliminates attention drawn to it by either paintball enthusuasts who work for baggage handling, or fellow players that know paintball gear bags may be showing up on their flights' baggage claim.

This ^^^ very well said Bad71. I thought that he would have dropped it by now. Who does he think he is to come in a thread about stolen goods and turn it into a bickering session, bro GROW UP and move on. I said it once and I will say it again. EXIT this way >>>> and be gone from this thread.

Still in question is the screening process... How did he get in???

Why don't you guys use a gps baggage tracker. There at most 80 bucks but saving your gear is well worth it?
