LA Hitmen / GT FAM Toy Drive at Hollywood Sports

The team killed it! We had about 20 for the clinic preregister plus another 40+ come through and donate more toys and jump in the clinic we held at HSP. We had the airball field all day and even let some local GTFAM teams join us for some fun near the end of the day. Much props to Red Silva, Big Paul, Sam, HSP GoPro and the rest of the Hitmen family including all the recruits hard work. Chris Tregarthen and Derrick Obatake both came out to check out the recruits and provide input besides painting some faces. We didn't have Pops Tacos on deck but one of the recruits set up a taco grill and took care of everyone. Good times for sure!

The toys went to the Hollenbeck youth center. Gio and Bear have been donating to that for years and every year there is a toy drive at HSP to help out. We were happy to do our part. The day before the event it was an all day task to get the field dry. Frankie, Sam and the recruits worked as a team preparing for the Sunday funday.

If you are interested in joining the Hitmen family be sure to rock our sponsors gear and let us know. If you want me to hold a clinic at your paintball field I am an email away. sonny@teamlahitmen.com

Next years 2017 tryouts are being planned now.

Will a paintball field and store vouch for you?
Will your past team vouch for you?
Do you have passion for paintball and for the people who play?
Has anybody told you that you are a positive ambassador for paintball?

If you said yes....
We have a code of conduct you would have to follow.
We have multiple squads in multiple formats you can train with and get to know.
We are looking for great people to join our family.
We love paintball and you have to as well. 

So far nothing is changing from the last years traditions.
No drama. No drinking. No cigarettes.  
Initial joining fee is combined with your first jersey purchase.
After that is out of the way you will receive team sponsorship pricing from all of our sponsors. We do not charge our team members for training, coaching, mentoring and more so the team joining fee helps cover those expenses. If you quit the team at any time the joining fees are nonrefundable. You will get discounts to events, discounts on gear, and be included in one of the longest running teams in history. You will stand out and make a positive difference in this sport we all love so much.

Dead Legends paintball game in Sacramento by CPX Sports

If you have pics from this event please let us know! We have almost none. I found a pic of the LA Hitmen recruits and a dude missing his sleeves at Dead Legends in Sacramento on Saturday. This was a paintball big game / scenario that was fun in the crazy rain! The horses rule was kind of nuts but that wasn't a big deal. Big thanks to CPX Sports and Honue! Thank you to everyone who came out! Proud of the recruits who made the long drive to join the rest of us there! Remember when you have fun at these big game be sure to support the sponsors who help make it happen. Without them we would not be able to have so much fun with so many players. #paintball4life

25 Hour World Record Paintball Game Destiny vs Hitmen - Planet Eclipse

Much love to Planet Eclipse for the sponsorship and use of their machine guns for the world record game. Of course I am a pump guy at heart but I do love to pick up a semi here and there. I own a Bob Long semi and have always loved Eclipse markers (have owned at least 4). So when I got to shoot their newest offering I knew it would be a good time. It outshot the revy rather easily but shot straight and was super light. It shot great all evening, all night, all morning into the afternoon on day two. That evening I switched guns to switch it up. I wanted to keep it though. Be sure to check out Planet Eclipse markers out before you buy your next semi. I know the girls on Destiny love theirs! LEGIT! www.planeteclipse.com

Paintball Explosion: World at War 5 "This field is over the top, a must visit!"

This is a must visit field. Much love and thanks to TJ, Romeo, Payroll and all the staff at Paintball Explosion. This is the same Paintball Explosion that made the news when they recreated a field from the video game Call of Duty so customers can experience a dream come true. Same field that is built on a old santas village theme park.  More recently they added an indoor multi level high tech laser tag field that is massive in size. The lasertag experience was over the top fun and I want to do that again next time I go. It was so good to see all the old friends and make new ones. Had to sit down with Dan Colby for half and hour and get caught up. The dinners were delicious with outstanding company. Much love to the photographers who capture these images, please support their efforts.

LA HITMEN veterans at Hollywood Sports Park in Bellflower, CA

Hollywood Sports Park customers received a bonus today being able to observe LA HITMEN pump veterans Derrick Obatake and Mike Masushige train some dedicated Hitmen rookies and hopefuls. The practice was on HSP's new air ball field and the Hitmen rookies grinded all day soaking up all the information and welts Derrick and Mike provided. I was informed it was a productive day. Not sure if any 1on8dontbelate drills were needed though.

I seriously wish I was there for that.

We have a lot of new faces rocking the new Hitmen black and white jersey. Like our brown and green jerseys these are made by Anthrax Paintball in Greece. The Hitmen black and white jersey colorway (or lack of colorway) pays homage of the tradition of Hitmen rookies and newer members wearing a long sleeve black/white cotton shirts while they earn the right to wear a Hitmen jersey.  When you see one of these b/w Hitmen jerseys check the collar. It will reveal the players name and rookie year. So the black/white jerseys are legit. Say hi if you run into a Hitmen and if you need help with something (or got a question) chances are someone wearing a Hitmen jersey will help you.
