So this is shaping up to be big news, apparently Mikes markerbids website has imploded and been shut down. http://www.mcarterbrown.com/forums/general-chat/283153-techpb-down.html http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=5109913 I realize you aren’t his auditor anymore (despite that he still did list you before shutting the site down) Care to come out of retirement to add any addition... more.
Tail of the Dragon
0 CommentsPosted by The Ford on August 2, 2015 under asides, Dirt, News, The Ford Report
Like paintballers, bikers have "Bucket List" rides they strive to take. The Tail of the Dragon is a stretch of road in North Carolina and Tennessee that has over 300 curves in the 11 miles of the ride in Tennessee. It is a mecca for motorcycle riders and sports car drivers to test their skills. Over the 4th of July weekend, my family and I were staying in Dillard, GA with friends, includi... more.
Your Phone and your Car…a cautionary tale
1 CommentsPosted by The Ford on March 17, 2015 under Dirt, News, The Ford Report, Top Story
The following editorial has nothing whatsoever to do with paintball, rather it's got more to do with my experiences last year recovering from a motorcycle accident. It's not a pleasant story, and there's a strong chance I'll use language that may or may not hurt your feelings. Having said that, I think it's time to tell the story, and use it to make a point. Read at your own risk. Aside from so... more.

Over the past week or so, Social Media and I'm sure the forums world have been abuzz with details regarding the PSP's new policies for the 2015 season. As usual, a source using a disposable email account sent me a copy of the 2015 Media Pack for the PSP, which includes various packages for having a presence in the PSP's events this season. To be honest, the numbers are actually reasonable con... more.
Note from Puerto Rico

Hey Mr. Ford. I know what I am attaching here will be in Spanish, Being one of many Hispanic player that follows your report, I believe this report will show a very positive vision of what we are doing for the sport in Puerto Rico. Recently a young men was shot by a police officer in PR as the kid had a paintball marker in his hand (better known in PR as GOTCHA!!). WAPA TV (a well know TV station ... more.
Funny Paintball People: Patrick “Winter” Dunnigan

Winter is one of those 'behind the scenes' guys you never think about...until you need him. The former pro player (I keep forgetting which team) is also a veteran gun tech, first with Planet Eclipse and then Valken. Rumor has it that he's looking to go back on the road with Planet Eclipse, but that is as yet unconfirmed. I know Winter from having him repair and upgrade the various Eclips... more.

Over the course of my paintball 'career' I've done just about everything a player can do, including owning a shop. I started out with a tiny online shop while I lived in Oklahoma, and later after I'd moved to Florida me, long time friend Kurt Wise and business partner Bryan Gilchrist owned "Unreal Paintball and Gaming" in Hudson, FL. Like any shop, we had an account with NPS, so we had some c... more.
Funny Paintball People: George Spurlock
0 CommentsPosted by The Ford on under Dirt, Industry News, News, The Ford Report, Top Story
It's no secret that I'm friends with the Spurlock Brothers. Mike, Andrew and George are all genuinely good people and very good at what they do, so what's not to like? Eldest brother George is the main reason for this. Back 'in the day' George served as the face and front man for a lot of Mike's ventures, including OGI, a company formed to build and sell the legendary HALO loader. T... more.
Funny Paintball People: Jonathan “Pedro” Davis

Jonathan "Pedro" Davis is not a pro player who burned up the circuit for years, nor does he have much desire to be famous or idolized. He was part of the SPPL team Black and Blue Krew who utterly destroyed the All Americans in 2007, and while that league was in operation, he was a pivotal part of the team. Pedro is actually a very nice guy. I think he's around 25 now. I first met him and ... more.
Funny Paintball People: ‘Krazy Kim’

I really do know Kim's full name, but as she's not really involved with paintball anymore, I'm using her nickname that she got around us to protect her privacy. I met Kim at Low Country Paintball during the Shooting Hot Magazine era, in 2009 or 2010. As you can tell from the photo, she's an extremely attractive lady, and at the time I met her, around 23-24 years old. This particular photo... more.

Kerry and I have actually known of each other for years, due to our mutual friendship with "TB" Wright of WorldOfTB.Com fame. He's an old school scenario game producer and player, and his years of expertise show in how his games go. I've played a few of his games in Florida now, and have enjoyed them immensely. Kerry is a huge man, and at first glance extremely intimidating. However h... more.
