While we have never met, I owe you a huge debt Mr. Gurnsey. I have made many friends, shared many fond memories, traveled the world, and had a lifetime's worth of fun because of paintball. We all owe you a huge debt for this great game that we play and love. I cannot thank you enough for all that you have given us.

Your memory is immortal, it is in the wind and the trees and the stars and the moon. It is in every paintball that has ever been and ever will be fired. It is in all of our hearts forever.

Paintball Vintage Video (1992) ... Bob Gurnsey playing paintball with a Nelspot Paint

Published on Sep 28, 2013


1992... Bob Gurnsey appeared on national TV teamed up with Bob McGuire and Randy Baxter in the woods at Splat-One (Tennessee). This game was televised on the first nationally syndicated paintball weekly TV series "American Paintball League", which aired in 19 million households from 1992-1997. Enjoy the slow paced "excitement" of single shot paintball." Gurnsey also demonstrates the early paintball guns

I'll get out the 12 gram and shoot off as many shots in the Phantom as I can in honor of your passing.

Cheers and May eternal sleep relieve you of your pain.

Fair winds and following seas to the man who made our sport a reality.

Bob, you're a legend--one of the good 'uns.

Rest in Peace Bob Gurnsey You will never know the effect paintball has had on my life. Without you my life would not have been molded how it is today. Your creation has been part of my life since 1993 and has enabled me to meet one of the best friends anyone could ask for.

Take care Bob, you're where the 12grams get 200+ shots and there are no barrel breaks now.

I got a chance to meet and talk with Bob for a little while on a few occasions. he introduced me to a few of the people who I know now and still talk to. He was a gentle soul and genuinely cared for those that he met.

Thanks for creating this great game we call paintball Bob. You'll be memorialized and talked about for as long as this game is around.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
