This past April I had the privilege to be able to play with over a hundred of the North East, Canada, South East even as far as Colorado for a two day MagFed event. For me this was a little more special at this event I would be playing with my best friend and team mate Fredy Palacio. We are both Marine Corps veterans and paintball has always been a great way for us to get together
Originally a manufacturer of collectible, half-scale replica machine guns, family-owned Tippmann entered the paintball industry in 1986 when gun law changes forced them to re-evaluate their business.
At the time, the Tippmann's were afraid that paintball was just a passing fad that would have about as much staying power as the hula hoop. But it seemed like a natural transition for the company anyway. After all, they knew how to make guns, and paintball markers shared the same basic principles as the machine guns they were manufacturing.
One of the most exciting things about paintball is the heart pounding adrenaline rush that you get from competing against your friends. A lot of us are fans of popular on-line multi-player First Person Shooter games. In these games you are dropped into shoes of a soldier in simulated combat environments. While fun and entertaining, FPS lack the total immersion that some are looking for. So for those players the Paintball genre of MILSIM or Military SIMulation is just what they are looking for to maximize their paintball experience. Tippmann markers are legendary for their ability to be customized by the player into one of many weapons used by today's and yesterday’s Soldiers.
