Paintball's finest...

I really had to think hard about whether or not to bring this up. It's being debated on all the major forums. Sometimes it's easier to just ignore crap like this and hope it just goes away. Pointing it out is like giving it free publicity and you know what they say about "any publicity (even bad) is good publicity."

I took this company to task awhile back, here and here. The names of their Killer Paintball brands include Blood, Murder and Death.

This ad appears in Facefull Magazine - always on the leading edge of raw and controversy.

Maybe you have something to say to Facefull about this ad. Try

I'm sick of this company.

Faceful has assured us that this ad has been pulled after receiving many email from concerned parities. Unfortunately the current issue was already in print (apparently there is approx. a 2 month lead time) when all the contraversy erupted.

Hopefully the editors of the magazine are good on their word and we will never see it again.

Thanks for the update.

Frustrating when so many of us try to represent the positive sides of the sport and you get ads in magazines and products named like this.

If I was an uninformed parent I'd think twice before letting my kids play paintball seeing products like this.

I personally hate this kind of advertising. It paints an inaccurate picture of the sport of paintball. Fact is, tournament-grade paintballs aren't all that different and there's a lot of brands. This company is just using shock value to get noticed. It's a cheap "below-the-belt" marketing tactic that simply tells you what kind of people are behind the product. I wouldn't use their stuff if it was free.
