September 27 2008 at Hell Survivors’ Tippmann World Challenge was the begining of something great. Three friends had an idea……and from there, from the firey pitts of hell, the NORTHERN GUNMEN were born.
Over the last 5 years the Gunmen have worked hard as an ole’ school team. They do thier talking on the field, and leave social media to others. The team has been sucessuful in commanding games like Living Legends, Tippmann Word Challenge, Day of the Dead and many more earing them a truckoad of hardware for MVT, MVP, Sportsmanship, and winning commanders…..they have aslo been fortunate to have seval team pictures and bio’s published in all the top paintball magazines.
In 2012 the Gunmen joined forced with Viper Paintball and Underground Productz to bring the very first Viper Game to Canada. Not only was this a truly historic game having Viper in Canada, but this also marked the very first international VIPER game. In year one almost 700 players joined in on the event making it a huge success.
Along the way the Gunmen have developed some great freindships with not only top figures in the paintball world but aslo in thier everyday local community. Take away all the trophies, prizes and wins, what the Gunmen most cherish is the friendships they have made. The team prides itself on making paintball better, fighting for the underdog, and being a positive role model with in the sport.
