Thanks! The owner of PMI, David Freeman, gave me credit for saving that gun. When I joined PMI it was still relatively new (G1 version) and selling but the reputation was struggling due to some production and customer service issues. During my time there I took over Customer Service and some R&D and talked with the manufacturer daily. I learned a lot and we made and sold an amazing amount of those.

How is a private business with direct competition communist?

You've said a lot of dumb **** over the years, but now you don't even make sense. You're just a miserable troll. You're not even funny anymore.

Hurr durr GI bad.

Do you know how much paintball I've been able to play because of the deals GI cuts on their paint? Which, might I add, shoots pretty damn good all the way down to 2 star.

Do you even play paintball or is this the last semblance of relevance you have? Coming here to harass people anonymously like a child?

How about you just **** off for good? I listened to you ***** about Impact for years and surprise, surprise. They finally win again and you just can't shut the **** up about their paint sponsor.

It really makes me wonder what is wrong with you psychologically that you put this much energy into this. You're like Damian Ryan, only you don't even play and no one likes you so you don't really even have the platform you think you do.

Try being more sparse and clever like John Sherman.

Good day, sir.
Thank you! May I have another?

I wasn't sure on Trevor.

piranha eforce was one of my first guns. I took it apart could never figure out how to get it back together then got an evil minion. Good times. No much has changed. I still take guns apart and still can't put them back together.

Richmond used to own GI and now he is part of Roundhill Group which did indeed buy Remington. And the name change is pretty well documented on here and elsewhere.
actually zap and then kore outdoors owned the patent on the paintball and it expired in 2014

https://patents.google.com/patent/US5393054A/en

also the hk dude with the long hair i forget his name did a tour of their paintball machines in cali on youtube. i guess it's technically not called a paintball machine. it's a soft gel encapsulation machine.

That was APX paint factory. HK now makes their paint on machines in Mexico that they do not own, but they seem to have exclusive use of.

Because the guy who makes it used to be a mod here.

And Valken doesn't make any paint here in the States that I know of.

I thought Recoil still made their own branded paint? I played 10-man with Recoil Factory at World Cup one year and got to play with the guys.

Lol. I got you anytime. At least with putting a Piranha together.

That's a little misleading because it was never enforced and it expired long before Kore was a thing.

That wasn't their machine. It was just the company that made their paint at the time. They have since parted ways.

He also had a big part in HK being HK

Valken does not (pakistan/india for some, at recoil in mexico for some, and somewhere else i cant remember tiawan or malaysia i think)

And yes recoil still makes recoil branded paint as far as i know to

The last two times I shot HK paint it was great. I had a box of the APX stuff and it was really good last summer and this spring with the Mexico made stuff and Iíd shoot it again in a heartbeat. I havenít had as good of luck with the GI stuff itís been a lot more inconsistent. I shot some 5 star in January and it was good, then some marblizer in February that was garbage. That marblizer was probably the worst paint Iíve shot in the last couple years. Usually though I donít have too bad of luck with the GI.

OK, um, yeah.

Admittedly, you have grounds for an official complaint. Or twelve.

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.
