A Beginner’s Guide to Paintball: How to Win Every Time
When it comes to playing paintball, it’s important to remember that paintballing is a competitive game. This means that there are winners and losers, and to win, there are strategies and tips to keep in mind that can help you do so.

The First West Virginia Airgun Deer
For years, Amber Nestor - one of the hosts of “The Chase with Ted & Amber” - had to leave her home state to hunt whitetails with an airgun.

Top 5 PCP Air Guns For 2022
Pistols are interesting, but rifles are truly fascinating. This feeling is not unique among airgun or firearms enthusiasts.

Today, we will continue this look into the category of air gun revolvers. So without further ado, here’s the last installment of the Wheelgun Wednesday blog series.
A Quick Trip to Texas
Just a few weeks ago we were able to attend the Texas Airgun Show held in Mansfield, Texas. We enjoy going since the event is relatively close, it’s no big hassle to go and since this is Texas we are talking about, the people are the best. Top to bottom, everyone at the host range and the attendees are friendly, even enthusiastic people. That’s a good crowd to hang around. Since it was just going to be two representatives from Umarex going (myself and videographer Chad Sharpe) we only took a few products with us.
Wheelgun Wednesday!!
Are you ready for the next installment of Wheelgun Wednesday? We sure are. This week’s episode will start off with a slightly different tone. Maybe tone is not the right word? Be that as it may, paintball is nothing new on the geologic scale of pew-pew time, but they are pretty new in the Umarex USA catalog. And since this is “Wheelgun Wednesday,” it should not surprise you that we have paint splatterers that fit this description.
