No more Action Pursuit Games (APG) Magazine

Subscribers to APG have been receiving replacement magazines in the mail this week with a note telling them that APG was no longer being offered.

I know APG was geared towards newer players, but I will miss seeing paintball magazines in bookstores.

Yah I remember this being one of the few you could find at a brick and mortar book store. Was a great magazine for newer players and more scenario style play if I remember right. Too bad they wont be made anymore.

I remember clipping out a Bob Long Dragon Intimidator advertisement and hanging it on my wall when I first got into the game. I haven't picked up a APG issue in a while but like John says it's sad to see the number of paintball magazines shrink.

It doesn't help that their website is down and their facebook page has been pushing firearm magazines and mainstream sports mags since the beginning on November.

I remember that issue.

I also remember flying somewhere and buying two paintball magazines before the trip so I could endlessly peruse the ads on the flight. I'm not sure if I ever actually read the articles.

"Paint check! "
Nope just blood, play on.

Sad to see APG go. Still have the issue where they listed my home phone number in a review of my ion frames. That was a fun couple months telling kids at 1 am that I didn't want to sponsor their woods ball team.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
