Sonny Lopez and Greg Hastings at Paintball Explosion: World at War 6

This was an insane game! I want to play at this field all the time! Greg and I were placed on separate teams. One LA Hitmen per side. Tj wanted it that way so TJ gets what he wants! So Greg got teamed up with the Wolf and they hunted me. I didn't get a Wolf to help me hunt Greg! We never actually got to find each other but we all had some crazy fun along the way. Check out Greg's game (that is FREE) on your mobile phone and check out the Wolf's Den on YOUTUBE! 

During the final battle Mr.H www.hkarmy.com and I were on the same side and Aztek, Reaper, the Midnight Angel were putting in serious work. My loaders batteries died right as the final battle game was starting and a Mad Frog Militia member stepped up and gave me his hopper. He would not take no for an answer. Thank you brother! Much props to the entire Mad Frog Militia for being there for another player. Much respect. Give them some love and check out their sponsors for sure! www.madfrogmilitia.com www.gisports.com 

Fact #1: Paintball Explosion is one of the coolest fields in our nation!

Fact #2: Paintball Explosion is a bucket list paintball field.  You have to play there sometime!

Fact #3: The World at War series is pretty awesome and tons of fun for everyone. Check out Payroll's other games and be sure meet me at the next World at War 7! 

See you on the field! Meet me at Paintball Explosion anytime I am going to play a game there! I need more pics from the game! Who was the photographers at this game?

Shooting Trident Defense firearms at Gat Guns

I will own a Trident Defense Firearm!  The trigger is crisp, the action is smooth, they are lightweight and they simply look sexy af. We had so much fun shooting the custom Trident Defense glock 17 and glock 42 at Gat Guns. www.gatguns.com Gat guns is probably one of the biggest gun stores I have ever been to!  They had everything!  The only work of art I wanted to check out that I couldn't find there was the Fightlife Industries MCR. (My current unicorn bangstick)

Fact #1: Trident Defense custom Glocks are bad ass.

Fact #2: I will own a Trident Defense someday! 

Fact #3: TJ kicked our asses at the range. I need to practice more. Who was there? Wolf, TJ, Reaper, Aztek, Graeme, and myself. There was a young couple there that was wondering why Reaper was shooting all the pvc but that is another story. ;)

Trident Defense Firearms (Company visit)

We got to visit Trident Defense on Saturday the day before the World at War 6 paintball event at Paintball Explosion. Trident Defense really knows what they are doing. 98% of everything they do is in house! So they are not outsourcing and waiting for months to get customers guns back. When you first pick one up you think holy shit these are beautiful works of art! My favorite one to shoot was the Glock 42. But I think I will probably get a custom Glock 19 or custom AR pistol from them someday. You have got to hold one of these and shoot it to really appreciate the work they put into it. There has to be a downside right? They did have a 50cal but we didn't get to shoot it. That is it! Next time we will! Check these guys out. I am 100% a fan! www.tridentdefense.com

Want to be a Hitmen? Colorado Hitmen, Texas Hitmen, and other areas email us!

 Come play paintball! We have fun but also strive to be the best we can be. Join something that becomes a lifestyle and discover how far you can push yourself. Pictured above is some recruits (Black/ dark jerseys) hanging with some Tactical LA Hitmen (Green jerseys) and tourney (Brown jerseys) LA Hitmen players at SC Village Paintball park in Corona, CA. 
 Learn communication, teamwork, problem solving, and have fun at the same time. Pictured above is a LA Hitmen squad at Dead Legends in Sacramento, CA. The guy from the other team in the horns is sneaky and had to be laughing as the pic was being taken.  Recruits rocking Giant Tactical pants. 
 We have squads playing tournaments, big games, scenarios, magfed and opfor services. What format do you want to participate in? This was a 2017 first place finish in the UPL Pump Division. See that wad of cash? Good job team! 
 If you want to come to big games with us that is great. You can also head to California to learn from the LA Hitmen pump legends! Pictured above: Rik, Mike, Tony, Derrick. They practice at Hollywood Sports Park in Bellflower, CA and The Ranch Paintball Park in Whittier, CA. 
If you want to create a Hitmen squad in your area or want to join up you have to reach out to us. Lots of teams knockoff the skull and wings and even try to copy by using our Hitmen family name. But there is only one official Hitmen family/team to join. We are growing membership in California, Colorado, and Texas! Where else should we be looking? 
BTW LA Hitmen is registered by the USPTO.

LA Hitmen's Sonny Lopez is heading to Paintball Explosion for World at War 6!

I can't wait to return to Paintball Explosion next month! This field is an insanely good time and the game is crazy fun! Be sure to check out the World at War 6 event sponsors and consider buying their gear! They support events and we need to support them back. Meet me at this game and we will roll onto the field together!




They have a indoor laser tag field that is one of the biggest in the USA! They are basically an old santas village turned into a paintball field! If that isn't enough Paintball Explosion also has the field from Call of Duty called Nuketown to scale in real life! Yes you can play the map Nuketown in real life at Paintball Explosion! To top it off they have a bar on site. There is nothing like Paintball Explosion in the world. If you are a serious paintballer you have to add this field to your bucket list. Your yearly bucket list IMO. I try to make it out there once and year and that simply isn't enough. Hats off to TJ and Romeo for a kick ass field! Hats off to Payroll Productions for producing the World at War game series! I can't wait! Did I say that already?

The competition is tough at Paintball Explosion. It was a hard battle last year! Can't wait to rock my new gear at this years game! Thank you to Catshack Reports for the media coverage!
The Wolf and I. We had to take a picture together. We have gotten to know each other a lot more these last couple of years and I enjoy our conversations immensely. We use completely different equipment and sponsors but we are on the same page. Life is good, have fun and play PAINTALL!
 Having dinner with TJ and Romeo and the crew from World at War 5 2016. That was an amazing dinner guys! Good laughs and lots of stares from the other diners lol. Can't wait for this years fun!
The fun is about to go down at Paintball Explosion! Head over there for your birthday party, getting hitched last night of fun party, graduation party, divorce party, new job party. Just go make up some reason you and your friends need to go play paintball!

Paintball: The most fun you can have with your clothes on!

Foods Alive Lemon Crackers Snacks at Living Legends 10 paintball event!

I was lucky enough to link up with the Foods Alive family (family run business) and they were kind enough to send me some samples to give out at a paintball event. I initially shared some of the samples with those were by the Immortal Air booth when I opened the box. The rest went up on stage and I threw them into the crowd. So many people came up to me later and said they were simply amazing, so good, awesome, and asked where to buy them. I am a fan for sure! Check out @foodsalive on IG and all your favorite social media websites! www.foodsalive.com Only thing I messed up on was not saving a couple for myself! I was starving lol

Sonny Lopez at Living Legends 10 held at CPX Paintball Park in Illinois



If you haven't attended a Living Legends event and you play paintball more than 4 times a year you have to get on a plane and plan to attend one! Plan to head to Midway or O'hare in May of next year. This is a bucket list field and event. If you don't have anyone to go with reach out to us! We like to make new friends and can help plan things out. This event is rock solid, be sure to preregister for everything. After reading this Youtube the final battle at Living Legends 10. If you haven't seen this battle in person you have to check it out. The event also features massive paintball battles, smoke, missions, vendors, bikini contest, etc etc 



Huge Thank you goes out to Respect Paintball for their continued support! We could not have done it without you guys. #legit Much love to MDP, Mad Frog, Destiny and the rest of the teams out having a great time.  www.respectpaintball.com

This season I am using a ton of new gear. The Push Paintball goggles are so legit. www.pushpaintball.com They protect me a lot more than what I am used to. (In comparison with JT USA Pro Flex system) The Push paintball system comfort creates a new bar to compete with, it is flexible where it needs to be, is clear, light weight, sexy, and the adjustable nose bridge is just genius. The Niche Element LA Hitmen Sonny Lopez #01 edition is pictured above. Lots of people were checking it out at the Immortal Air booth. This thing shoots laser beams and is so dam accurate it isn't fair. I am seriously in love with this pump gun! Have turned down offers in the $1,200 range multiple times already from people who want to buy her. Even though I had the Niche at the IA booth I actually used my new Dynasty G6R the entire event! Playing that wall during the final battle is 100% more fun with a space gun in your hands. 


The air system above is a Dan Colby Immortal Air SL420 edition. Contact your local dealer and ask them to order you one of those air systems. www.immortalair.com The regulator operated perfectly and the entire system are super light weight. I have always been a fan of Dan Colby designs and safety. He puts years of experience and hard work into his designs! My new loader is a Level Loader by GI Sports. This thing has been rock solid since day one and I have used the same batteries this entire time! I honestly love all the new gear this year has brought. Can't wait to see the new Push gear bags and the new KM straps coming out soon!


Last mission of the day. Bill from Mad Frog asked me to find a temple and bring this gold head back. I usually don't do the missions I just like to shoot people. But anything for Bill so this mission was getting done. Once I knew what I had to do I wanted to start asap. Only two players were near me and I wanted to leave stat even though someone was getting us a bunch of troops to support the mission. I couldn't wait, one player didn't want to go with me but the other did. You might recognize her from MDP www.moderndaypirates.com and Ninja Death Squad. We ran off and heard that the area might still be clear. Literally sprinting the entire way we encountered not a single opponent. Once at the temple it felt like Indiana Jones. The props and lighting and entire design was impressive. Hats off to CPX Sports www.cpxsports.com for giving a shit how things look on the paintball field. #AWESOME  I crept into the temple expecting a hidden kid to blast me as soon as I would grab the golden head. I also expected a trap or explosion. But nothing happened. No smoke. No bomb. No hidden assassin. Once I grabbed the golden head I turned and ran as fast as I could. My backup was right next to me and we got out of there like the place was on fire. Once we got back to the base Bill said that was probably the fastest mission complete of the entire Living Legends 10 event. Not sure if that was accurate but we had to take a pic and certainly were happy with our success.  Teamwork makes the dream work everyone!


At the end of the event I throw (a box full) one of my favorite snacks in the world the Lemon Crackers from Foods Alive to the crowd!You have to try those out! They are a gateway healthy snack. Buy them now! I also love their Hemp oil and Hemp powder. You will not be disappointed. So many people came up to me and said "OMG These are really good!" Huge Thank You to Foods Alive for supporting paintball players doing what they love to do.

Supergame 50 at Sniperz Den in St. Paul Oregon

This game was one for the record books! Over 45 Hitmen in attendance! We ran with the Renegades and even made a special edition jersey for the Renegades squad. The media team was all over the event and I even got to be interviewed for a documentary being made on paintball.  Big thank you to Greg, Dan, Kati and everyone else who helped out! The staff are amazing and the paint shot perfect. 5 cases shot and not a single break in the G6R by Field One! This event was special for so many reasons. To many to list! Meet us there next year!
