Just thought id post this. Maybe to vent but maybe to give others hope. My sons custom modified Tippman A5 disspeared last Oct. It and a lot of others things over a years span or so. The gun was found in local pawn shop. With several other itmes that came up missing almost a year earlier from my house. The guy who pawned it was a freind of mine who had been coming over to say say high if no one answered he would help himself to whatever he wanted and leave. I confronted him about it he told me he didnt steal it, then told the police he didnt steal it, then came up with some BS story about buying it on line last summer 3 months before it came up missing. i had reciepts from October when I bought a new expansion chamer drop forward and line. Made his story fall apart. He finally confessed to stealing it but stated he only stole from me once. Even though two of the items he pawned dissapeared almost a year ago. He has been charged with residential burglery, possesion of stolen merchandise and some other charge involving selling stolen merchandise. I actually feel worse about the thefts now knowing it was a freind an neighbor. i watch him drive by every day. but I keep telling my story in hopes someone else he has burglerized can find answers to there missing stuff. I wont get the gun back until its all finished. Moral of the story is dont put $700 into a tippman Buy an ION LOL. Thanks I feel better already. best of luckt o those whove been ripped off as well.
