no really it stand for tijuana, that is what it was originally but they decided that it would not be good of a name for a paintball company so they reversed the letters, there is an article in facefull about it. if you dont believe me read last years facefulls, dont know which one though.

machine is right.

supposedly he was selling out of the back of his truck till someone made him get a buisness license, and when he could not think of a name thats what he choose.

Something doesn't seem right about that....

JT didn't start out as a paintball company. They've been into Motocross apparell for far longer. Other than that, I suppose it could be true. But I believe the founder of JT's last name is Thompson, so it could have something to do with that (I forgot his first name. Greg, maybe?)

JT started making motocross equipment in the 70s, long before paintball came around. Your information is obviously wrong.

Well my hypothese is

...that machine cane be right about Tj because everyone knows that San Diego is JT headquaters. So, since JT is 30 miles away from tijuana it could be the fact how JT got its name, tijuana. This is a good Question to ask people.

Oh well, i guess one of us wont know
