Joining the paintball community allows you to make many friends and memories that last a lifetime.

Air Tanks
Air tanks store the compressed gases that propel the paintballs out of the marker. Strict ASTM guidelines are adhered to for the production of tanks, and burst disks are built-in to release the gas safely in the case of any failure. You receive free refills at the beginning of each game.

Non-toxic capsules filled with water-soluble dye are used as the projectile in the sport. They have a shell that breaks on impact and leaves a visible paint splatter. They are 100% edible and safe for humans and animals.

Mask

Protective Overalls
These overalls are to protect you and your clothes. Please note that sometimes paint does come through and we therefore advise you not to wear your best clothes. Please also note that it does get hot, therefore we recommend wearing light clothing and showering to cool down between games.
