For those of you who don’t know, Ledz from Planet Eclipse is a huge supporter of the UKPSF and a familiar character in the UK paintball industry, he is in fact the managing director of Planet Eclipse, which is now one of the biggest paintball brands in the world!
He has kindly agreed to spare some of his time to answer 2 questions from you guys every month, which will feature in our monthly newsletter which is sent to all UKPSF members!
WHERE HE BEGAN!
“Unemployable” is basically the story of where Planet Eclipse began.
- It is a brilliant clip, and definitely worth a watch, Im sure some of you will reminisce at the old clips and photographs of the way paintball used to be played in the UK 20 years ago!
If you have a question for Ledz then email it to:

Its Just another day at the office for the UKPSF’s chairman Mr Steve Bull who seems to get some strange requests..
So Steve had an interesting telephone call today from the O2 arena looking for a bit of advice, as a multi million pound event company, who have been employed to run the “Meatloaf Farewell tour” had become stuck when unfortunately their “T shirt cannon” would not work as it had run out of C02 ! (We want a T-Shirt cannon! imagine what you could fire from that thing?!)
They were looking for help sourcing an approved C02 supplier, and the UKPSF tend to be the first point of call for large companies with queries on compressed air, especially when the general public are involved.
Steve kindly pointed them in the right direction to get their air bottles filled in time for the show, Its all in a days work!
You’re Welcome Mr Meatloaf!
*Please note, silly tweed fancy dress not required!
Laporte’s Paintball Trap System featured at the Bristol Shooting Show, and we think its pretty cool!
This is a brilliant bit of technology considering the brands heritage, here is an extract from their website: “Laporte is the reference in terms of Clay Shooting.
Founded in 1927, the Laporte name belongs to the history of clay shooting. Seven times Exclusive Supplier to the Olympic Games, Supplier to the English Royal Family plus thousands of National and International references including the top American Shooting Federations. Laporte also remains at the forefront of innovation with the new ecological Flash clay that offers quality and performance.
Create, develop, and innovate, this is the secret of Laporte’s ongoing success.”

Things could get a bit more interesting out on the paintball field with a few of these guarding the base camps!
The guys at RealSentryGun.com have developed a Sentry gun, that can be carried, and deployed easily on a battlefield. The team have been creating multiple prototypes of automated sentry turrets, including sentry guns, targeting systems, Paintball & Airsoft Sentries, and object following cameras.
In the video below is their well designed briefcase style Airsoft sentry gun, that can be set up on the field in under a minute and can be set to track single or multiple targets, to fire single or burst shots, and also semi, or fully automatic rate of fire. Also with a universal gun mount, and trigger finger, allowing you to mount any airsoft/paintball gun you want.
Although just in prototype stage so far, and not for commercial sale yet, the project looks promising. When closed, the sentry gun is completely water proof, and due to its lightweight, and small size, it easy easy to store, and carry across the battlefield.
Using cheaper alternatives, like a tennis ball can for a hopper that can hold 6000 rounds, and a $4 dollar waterproof camera case, along with a $50 Airsoft Gun, they have created an outstanding piece of kit.
Our favourite touch is the addition of the voice of the sentry guns from Portal 2!
A UKPSF Affiliated event is a walk on, scenario event, or paintball tournament that has been sanctioned by the “Tournament Committee” UKPSF Players memberships are only be valid at UKPSF Affiliated events
The organisers of Affiliated events have supplied the UKPSF with information regarding insurance cover, first aid cover and use the UKPSF air policy, and meet the basic criteria of the UKPSF “Tournament committee”
-What is a walk-on? A walk-on is a regular event (usually monthly) that paintball venues run for their regular paintball players, who have their own equipment.
-What is a Scenario Event? Scenario Events are larger events that are usually based around a theme/Scenario, there are scenario events held around the country that attract hundreds of paintballers, they are often continuous all day paintball games.
-What is a Paintball Tournament? Paintball tournaments or leagues are held across the country for 3/ 5 and 7 man teams, usually they are based around an inflatable “Sup’Air” tournament field.
So we were sat back watching a bit of Telly the other night, and paintball just doesn’t stop at the office…
Nope, there is no getting away from it, paintballing it is appearing on the television more often these days. Some adverts are so much better than others, and we think this one is a gem (apart from the distinct lack of paintball safety goggles of course) but then, lets bear in mind that this is not a realistic paintball setting, its just a bit of fun!
The paintball gun, dubbed “The Emulsionator 3000″ seems to be some sort of hybrid, and has 3 hopper type paintball feeds on the top. If anyone has any idea what this paintball gun is then feel free to comment below!
Check out this new advert from “The Range” below..
Paintbot is a “Tweet to Shoot” paintball gun that uses Social Machines hardware and software to trigger shots based on the use of a hashtag. It’s totally dangerous and awesome!
All you do is Tweet #ISLPaint
Check out the video below;
iStrategyLabs, based in Washington D.C. rigged the paintball gun to an Arduino, and set it up to respond to commands sent via the internet. Simply add the hashtag #ISLPaint to your tweet, and know that somewhere across the world, a whiteboard is being covered in paint, not the most interesting target, but… you can shoot this gun from anywhere in the world (provided you have access to twitter!)
Unfortunately it is not possible to see a live video feed of your shots firing live! but you can check out the video above to see it in action!

So even “Top Gear” have stumbled across the video we were sent last week. The video, which is of 2 Audi RS4′s racing around a abandoned aircraft hanger shooting at each other with mounted paintball guns.
The paintball guns were 50 Cal replica’s which were mounted to the car bonnets, and the driver had a button inside the car which shot the paintball gun.
The film production crew previously did testing at a UKPSF accredited venue “Skirmish Bristol” we are told they did test shots on the bonnet at different distances, so that they could assess the damage, Skirmish also recommended ”Enola Gaye” pyrotechnics to trial on the filming tests, which they were given various samples to trial on film. They also put them in contact with a paintball venue who had custom built the replica guns that were mounted on the bonnets!
The Black car was shooting blue paintballs, and the white car shooting yellow paintballs, they keep a score throughout the “game” and they also have a few secret weapons which they unleash during the battle, such as paintball oil slicks, and powder grenades!
