A Parent’s Guide to Paintball has just started receiving reviews from some of the best tournament players out there, and I’m pretty pleased (actually, very pleased) with what they have to say.
Here’s a sampling:
“I wish I had a book like this 9 years ago when I started playing. For a 14 year old it’s hard to explain to your parents why they should wake up early on their day off to drive you out to a paintball field. This book really puts it into perspective.” -Grayson Goff-X-Factor
“This book dispels a lot of myths that my wife and I had about paintball. What a great way to get the kids out of the house and burn up some pent-up energy! This is something I can do with my kids that would be fun, safe, keep them out of trouble and keep us all in better shape. Now I understand why big companies use this sport for teambuilding and corporate retreats.” -Grayson’s dad Jerry Goff

“This book is a great resource for any parents out there with questions about paintball. It does a great job going over just about everything someone should know about our sport.” -Yosh Rau of 7-Time World Champion Professional Paintball Team San Diego Dynasty
“A must read for any parent who’s hesitant about letting their child play paintball or who wants to know more about the sport their child is into.” -Ryan Greenspan of 7-Time World Champion Professional Paintball Team San Diego Dynasty
“There’s a lot of common misconceptions about the sport of paintball, and this book does a great job of giving a straight forward, unbiased look into our sport that can help anybody—not just parents—make an informed decision about paintball.”—Alex Fraige of 7-Time World Champion Professional Paintball Team San Diego Dynasty

To begin, the owner of the site in question is Mike Phillips, a former member of PBN before being banned for the following reasons –>> http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=2735639
He is also the user who posted a video to his YouTube channel titled “Don’t wanna be a PBN Idiot”
For anyone wondering why I choose to remain ANONYMOUS please see the screenshot and a separate story below of him threatening people he has encountered online:
Here is a tech paintball screenshot showing how Mike likes to threaten people. (see below)
Over the past few months me and many other members of a paintball auction bid site (paintball marker-bids) have officially been scammed.
It has been months since many of us won our auctions with no resolution in sight. The owner is citing lack of funds due to “charge backs” even though he has our money and we have won auctions, he is not buying or shipping our items. He has stated it may take him up to 6-7 months or longer to get us our items.
I am posting this because the owner of the site shut down his forum when members started complaining and now the members have no where to go.
Mike was also 3+ months behind on his other penny auction site “airsoftbids” back in July of 2015

He also went on a witch hunt for “Paintball Bid Wars” and he is doing the same thing.
Quote and video (at 10:35) for reference:
“They’re taking money from your fellow paintball players, they’re putting it in their own ****ing pockets and they’re not mailing out prizes to people who legitimately won them”

He use to have a person audit the site for fraud but the person stopped due to non payment from Mike.
UPDATE: looks like the site has posted the following messages to its home page.

As of this post on 68caliber.com, Mike has still not delivered the guns, still not given back any money. Welcome to the Hall of Shame Mike.
