Paintball Force on Force Training Equipment!

While people have been shooting at one-another with paintball guns of varying types since the early eighties and enjoying it, and a few military, security and law enforcement agencies have used paintball equipment for force-on-force training, it has not exploded in popularity for this purpose. The main reason for this is the inability of many paintball guns chambered in the most popular calibers, .68 caliber and .50 caliber, to properly imitate modern tactical firearms in size and handling, making the all-important aspects of muscle memory, sight picture and reloading difficult to emulate. Until now. The latest advancements in .43 caliber paintball equipment like paintball guns, paintballs, chalk balls and even reusable rubber paintball ammo have revolutionized the concept of affordable force on force tactical training using paintball, and Valken has everything needed to safely train until you can’t get it wrong!

Paintball tactical training

Paintball tactical training equipment has come a long way thanks to companies like Umarex and their line of .43 caliber T4E, or “Training 4 Engagement” paintball gear. As important as the concept of hitting opponents with a real projectile during tactical training is, and that paintball is good for in any caliber, other concepts of tactical training are equally, if not more important that have made agencies shy away from using paintball for this purpose. The major facets of force on force training that make it so important is learning sight picture and muscle memory when using tactical equipment in stressful situations so that those being trained will be better able to quickly create a sight picture and put rounds on the intended target, along with successfully reloading in stressful situations with adrenaline pumping, weapons firing, opponents advancing and the associated distractions and challenges.
