    Editor's Note:  Over the weekend Kerry "Warhawk" Griffin of Ragnarock Production Group had threatened to write a "Funny Paintball People" story about yours truly...here are the results of him making good on this threat:    Seeing as a dear friend of mine, Dale “Furby” Ford, has been writing funny paintball people articles, I figured it would only be fitting that someone would wri... more.

    Legendary Sales Rep Greg Muller is moving on, to parts as-yet unknown:                     Muller has left the building - Instead of letting the rumor mill churn out a caustic mess of lies, half-truths and maybes, I’ll save myself the trouble and provide some details. Today is my last day with Valken Sports - it... more.
  • Funny Paintball People: Giovanni ‘Johnny’ Postorivo 0 CommentsPosted by on October 18, 2014 under Dirt, Industry News, News, The Ford Report, Top Story
    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 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.

    "I've just been down the gullet of an interstellar cockroach. That's one of a hundred memories I don't want." Tommy Lee Jones as “K”, Men In Black     Normally around this time of the year I'm thinking about the year that's just about gone by and what's happened in the game and the industry to present it as a “Year in Review” editorial.   This year it's going to... more.
  • Funny Paintball People: Kerry “Warhawk” Griffin 0 CommentsPosted by on October 10, 2014 under Dirt, News, The Ford Report, Top Story
    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.
  • Funny Paintball People: Thomas and Melody Presson 0 CommentsPosted by on under Dirt, News, The Ford Report, Top Story
    Thomas and Melody Presson are relatively new to the game of paintball, but obviously they have chops as business people.   I first heard of Paracord Addiction earlier this year, and I've watched Thomas and Melody turn what I initially thought was a bit of a gimmick into a serious up-and-coming player within the Industry. The men in my family tend to be stone-faced, which especially in my fath... more.

  • The Rally Noob 0 CommentsPosted by on October 6, 2014 under Dirt, Featured, News, Top Story
    I've been riding motorcycles of one kind or another for most of my life. From the minibike my dad got for me when I was 7, eventually graduating into dirt bikes of various sizes, and finally street bikes, I've been on two wheels of one sort or another for 37 years and counting now.   Over the years I've owned and ridden a variety of bikes, mostly sport bikes of one kind or another. My l... more.
  • Funny Paintball People: Mike Spurlock, Part 2 0 CommentsPosted by on October 3, 2014 under Dirt, Industry News, News, The Ford Report, Top Story
    Mike Spurlock is one tough bastard.   Back in 2011, while the first generation Vapor was still in development and early production, he was involved in a scooter accident in Taiwan, where he was living at the time.   He spent 3 days in the hospital, and eventually checked himself out so he could get back to work. One of the first things he did was to Skype me demanding that I take a screensh... more.
  • Funny Paintball People: John Rice 0 CommentsPosted by on October 2, 2014 under Dirt, News, The Ford Report, Top Story
    For those of you new to the game, John Rice is one of those names you probably aren't familiar with.  In 2002,  when I met John at that year's Mardi Gras Open, he was riding the crest of his design expertise.  That year the WDP Angel IR3 was introduced, with a new breech sensing system that he felt would revolutionize the industry. Obviously I wanted to sit down with him and talk about it fo... more.
  • Funny Paintball People: Mike Phillips 0 CommentsPosted by on under Dirt, News, The Ford Report, Top Story
    This one time in St. Pete, Mike Phillips saved me from a beating. Not really, but the guy who had designs on beating me up was pretty sure he could do it... The year was 2010 if I remember correctly.   It might have been in 2011, shortly after I'd separated from the woman I talked about in Frank Connell's Funny Paintball People story.   I honestly don't remember who had talked to who reg... more.
  • Funny Paintball People: Frank Connell 0 CommentsPosted by on October 1, 2014 under Dirt, News, Top Story
    If you read The Ford Report regularly, you might think that Frank "Da Tank" Connell hates my guts and regularly drives to Georgia to beat me up.  The fact is that we're friends, and we talk semi-regularly, even though we're supposed to hate each other because he owns Vanguard USA and I work for Machine Paintball. To be honest, I'm a bit of a Frank Connell fanboy.  What little formal training ... more.
