The following is from Tippmann in their recent press release:
Tippmann is pleased to introduce the new U.S. Army Paintball Carver One – a new .68 caliber paintball marker made by Tippmann.
Carver One is the latest addition to the extremely popular and rapidly growing U.S. Army Paintball line. The new marker incorporates an array of eye catching and performance-enhancing features, including an all-aluminum body featuring four picatinny rails for easily adding scopes or handles, a built-in foregrip, built-in sling mounts and built-in sights. As an additional benefit, a stock and foregrip can be purchased separately, and then easily added to give Carver One a unique appearance and superior on-field control. An eGrip version of the new marker will also be available.
Initial reaction to the design and price has been exceptional; here are just a couple of comments received from core paintball players:
"This Carver One appeals to me on several different levels. First, its shape is sort of reminiscent of the old carbine line, of which I am a HUGE fan. Second, the foregrip? Genius."
"It’s really rather sleek-looking, and for the price you're going to be asking for it, I think this will do EXACTLY what you want it to—introduce players to the MILSIM line of play. It'll be a great introductory marker, I'm certain."
Saturday was my first time playing in the snow. (Gastonia, NC saw a decent winter storm with a few inches of snow this weekend) I've played paintball for about 15 years, give or take a year or 2,and let me tell you it was one of the best times i've ever had playing.
I don't know if it was because of the people that were playing with me,we had 6 on a team, or the snow or what but i had a blast. You really have to rely on your skills because it's hard to hide in the snow. Plus, it's like trying to run on the beach in the soft sand, it's just not done with any speed at all (or at least for this old fat man lol). Anyway, have fun, play safe and we will see ya'll on the field at Behind Enemy Lines.
Junbug can be found almost every weekend at Behind Enemy Lines Paintball in Gastonia, NC where he is the head ref.
