    Query About UK Paintball Marker Laws

    Query About UK Paintball Marker Laws

    In 80’ you should expect the ability for accurate shots. Most people’s experience of paintball is at the rental level, with guns selected for maintainability and reliability to actually shoot with lots of abuse, and paint at a grade that could be in stock for some time - sites only know how...

    Basic Equipment Needed

    If you're referring to a pod bag as I would then its not necessarily worth buying as an individual. A pod bag is supposed to be for carrying pods, when there are a lot of pods. Such as a tournament team who load up a number of pods in staging, grab them for each round, discard them when...

A few teams watch the forum, but paintball is still quite fragmented on Facebook In normal circumstances a stroll around CPPS and saying hi to a couple of people at the trade stands or watching the fields usually soon gets...
