December 20, 2013 – G.I. Sportz is pleased to announce it has acquired Tippmann Sports, bringing together two iconic paintball companies. This transaction combines the industry’s leading brands of paint (GI Sportz and DXS), markers (Tippmann and GI Victus), goggles (Vforce) and accessories together under one roof creating a global industry one stop shop.

But one thing that was always great about Tippmann is that they were slow to change in part because they wanted to ensure longevity of their marker and good quality in that marker. Look how long the 98 stayed around and the A-5 as well. SL-68 still a favorite among man folks... Largely because they lasted.
Tippy's were like the AK-47 of the paintball industry...toss it in the mud, fire off a couple of rounds to clear the chamber and away you go.

Yeah, I know. Hence the sentiments.
"Why, this is hell, nor am I out of it:
Think'st thou that I, who saw the face of God,
And tasted the eternal joys of heaven,
Am not tormented with ten thousand hells,
In being depriv'd of everlasting bliss?"
"You wanna know what I think? I think you're some kind of deviated prevert. I think General Ripper found out about your preversions, and that you were organizing some kind of mutiny of preverts."
