Thread: Tom Kaye Retires from Paintball, AGD Under New Management

  1. #361
    Interesting link but I would say that AGD did not make the first compressed air guns for paintball but they did develop them for widespread use.
    I used a compressed air paintball gun back in 1989.

    If you whatch the original video that came with the automag, Tom talks about "inventing" compressed air for the guns, however air america I believe was the company that was making the tanks and regulators. It was Tom's idea but it was considered to dangerous at the time so they let others do the heavy lifting of getting HPA accepted.

    good to see Tom still frequenting the forums after all these years eh?

    btw who knew his real name was Tom Kotsiopoulos? I'm probably the last person to have found this out...

    I found that out by going to his site. I can see why he uses Kaye as a business name, much easier. I've actually thought about doing the same thing if i ever have a business since my last name is polish.

    But yeah, i'm glad to see tom is still kicking it as far as paintball, i'm hoping to see him delve a bit deeper, but if he doesn't i'm just as happy with the compressor.

    Okay so technically Tom is back in the game now right. He is almost ready to start selling the mini compressor so that right there is proof that he is back. So he's back !!
    Now if he will just scoop up the electro patent and AGD starts turning out Xmags again all will be well in the world of paintball !

    Mini compressor? Link please!!!!

    I've been in the game since '98 and I honestly don't like the path paintball has been forced into by corporate greed. It's impossible to find a field where things are played "like the good ol' days" unless you are playing with just friends. Shoot, around where I play mech markers are non-existent and 99% of everyone has an ION. The game isn't about teamwork or strategy anymore, it's all about kills by volume and what's the cheapest fastest gun.

    Tom you have changed the game in ways you may never know. You have inspired so many people as well, just look at this forum! Thank you for staying as long as you have. You and your products will always represent quality. I know it's late, but the feeling in my gut after reading these posts is undescribeable. I'll keep reppin' AGD for as long I physically can! Thank you for all of your contributions and hard work, please don't feel like it was in vain. I'd really like to shake your hand one day.
