Paintball.media Magazine -- print is back!

I started playing paintball with the kids my neighborhood back in the late 80ís, with a Splatmaster and PGP. Later I moved onto a Tippmann Model 98 and GOG eNMEy. Over the years, Iíve always enjoyed flipping the pages of paintball magazines -- from Paintball Sports Magazine to Action Pursuit Games -- to see the latest guns and events going on around the world. Though I havenít played paintball for a few years, I saw on Facebook that Paintball.media was going to fill the void and publish a print magazine. Excitedly, I bought a copy of the July 2017 online, and Iím glad I did. With over 150 pages, itís no lightweight, and the full-color photography is awesome, too. It contains reviews for guns in all price ranges, from the Valken Code to the Etek vs. GTek, and I was glad to see that Tippmann is still around, too! The magazine also featured a recent big game, Living Legends X, and contains everything that an NXL fan needs to know about the pro circuit (spoiler: Dynasty is still around and dominating after all these years!). After reading Paintball.media, I was inspired enough that I spent all day Saturday watching NXL Atlantic City on GoSports streamed to my Airbnb rental, bought a Dye Rize (featured on page 17), and on the drive home from my weekend away, I stopped at a local field and bought an air tank. All this to say that Iím glad to be playing once again, and I owe some of the inspiration to Paintball.media!

The photography and quality of the print is awseome. I felt the writing was lacking.

This is the first paintball magazine I've seen "in the wild" in years. And it wasn't even in the gun section!
Really took me back to being a teenager and rushing to the back of Books-a-Million to go through all the latest paintball magazines and scan them for new gear. Made me kind of sentimental, so I ponied up the $9 for the magazine.
