Still loving this, interesting to read the details about WGP and Smart Parts legal battle, I loved the look of the black magic as a kid who had been paintballing for a few birthdays and was intrigued, never for the life of me knew why the markers became so hard to find though! :D

Not guilty NSKlad, I just about remember it though. It was more than likely done by Ian Miller [Beaker] or one of our contributors.
I really miss the magazine because it played an integral role in recording the evolution of UK ball, along with the European and also American development.
I think our sport is worse because of the absence of not just PGi but also the other magazines.
We really lost something special when the magazines all died; I'm afraid the internet coverage of events and personalities just doesn't cut it and I'm not altogether sure why.

Because there's too much of it and anyone can write it , you don't need a journalistic qualification to post your opinion on the internet and no-one proof reads it first...

Wasn't quite what I meant Dusty, but c'est la vie. And yes, I miss PGI too. Everything in there was gospel to me.
