A Bit of Modern Combat Sports History
We live and breathe paintball. Starting out in 2007, Ian decided to start paintball distribution in the UK by working and operating from a residential address. Whilst working from home is the norm now, back in 2007 Ian pushed the limits of normal by making his home paintball empire grow from the comfort of spare time and a short walk to his own kitchen.
As things started to pick up it was time to move on from the house and occupy the small shed in the garden to stock the orders. Paintball was starting to boom, serious players and professional paintball masters were looking for more parts, more paintball guns, and more international brands that supplied the best paintball equipment in the world. It was once again time to move on.
A small warehouse space across from Ian’s place of work was exactly what he needed. Real space to keep the stock in check, room to fulfil the incoming orders, and it was just a stone throw away from his day-to-day job. Demand was once again rising, after all, no one else was supplying magfed paintball guns or pushed milsim in the UK - Ian was the frontrunner!
Ian decided it was time to make paintball in the UK a serious matter. UK Paintball LTD was born, a larger warehouse space was found, and Mike joined part-time to help keep RAP4 running. Eventually, Mike went full time, the business was starting to really shake up UK paintball, product ranges went from around 50 to almost 5000, they had to find yet another new warehouse to cope with the huge selection of products and orders that started coming in from around the globe.
It’s been well over 10 years now since that residential address and small garden shed, Ian and Mike have become the backbone of professional UK paintball. Working from a spacious showroom and shop in Mitcheldean, processing daily orders and answering many of your calls and emails. They are the heart of Modern Combat Sports and the experts you hear behind every product, video, and even phone call you make to us.
Modern Combat Sports is about passion, and we love equipping passionate paintball players with the best and most unique paintball equipment from the US and Europe.
