What started as a way to shoot paintballs and practice shooting with a gun has grown into a thriving hobby in the capital of the state of California, as the region’s top paintball player has been crowned the best paintball tournament in the world.
“It’s hard to explain to a non-player why paintball is so much fun,” said Josh Farkas, the tournament’s host.
“Just like it’s hard for us to explain why we like basketball, it’s even harder for them to explain paintball.”
The Paintball Capital Edge tournament is a series of eight tournaments, each with a different theme and format, each taking place at different locations throughout the state.
The capital of California is the state capital of Orange County, where Paintball is one of the most popular sports in the state, with more than 3,200 competitors from all over the world competing in eight different tournaments.
“If you’re going to start a sport that is popular and in the mainstream, then you need a venue that has an audience,” said Farkam.
“This is a good example of that.
The paintball community is huge in Orange County.
They’re also the most well-known and most well attended sports.”
The top two teams in each of the eight tournaments advance to the next round, with the top two advancing to the finals.
The top two finishers of each tournament then face off in a best-of-three match to determine the winners of the tournament.
The winners of that match advance to a finals match that will determine the winner of the final tournament.
For Farkham, the crowning of the world’s best paintballs player was a little unexpected.
The man who once called himself the best in the paintball world was born and raised in Orange, California, a town of just over 500 people.
“I had no idea who I was or where I came from,” said the 28-year-old.
“But I was really fortunate to have an amazing father and grandfather that taught me to respect other people’s opinions and take responsibility for my own.”
Growing up, there was so much negativity in the community that you could almost be bullied or beaten up.
So that’s the reason why I grew up in the area.
That’s why I chose to play this sport.
“In 2014, the Los Angeles area had the second highest murder rate in the country after Washington, D.C., according to a report from the University of Southern California’s Center for Gun Violence Prevention.”
But I think that helped my family because I had a really supportive family and I had my dad around.””
And there was also a lot of drug dealing and gangs.
But I think that helped my family because I had a really supportive family and I had my dad around.”
It wasn’t until Chris was 17 that he started playing paintball.
His father was a veteran of the war in Afghanistan and a retired Air Force officer, but his other sons, who were all in the Army, didn’t think he was good enough to join.
“The only thing that really stuck with me was how big of a gun I had and how big my dad was,” said Christopher.
“I would always play in my dad’s backyard and he would never shoot me.”
That started to change in 2016 when Chris began shooting paintball with his father and brother.
They eventually won a national championship in their first year of competition, and Chris went on to play in more tournaments than anyone else in the entire country.
“We’re all really competitive,” said Paul.
“There are a lot more guys that have the same goal than just being great players.
I think it’s all about being a winner.”
Paul’s father is the owner of Paintball Paintballs, which has been in business since 2016.
He started his business by selling the gun that he used to play paintball at home, but he said that the business has grown since that time.
“At the beginning, I sold the gun to a couple friends for $20,” said David.
“They told me that they wanted to start doing it themselves.
So I sold it to a local company called Paintball Paintball.”
Paul was a member of the paintballs team that won the national championship that year, but when he decided to quit the game, he said his dad encouraged him to start over.
“They told him that if he wanted to continue, then he’d have to come up with $15,000 and go to Las Vegas,” said Daniel.
“So I took his advice and I went and found a job at a paintball shop in Orange.”
Paintball Paintsports opened in 2016 and is now one of California’s biggest and most successful businesses.
“When I first got here, I knew it was going to be a long time before I could go to work,” said Scott
