In the early 1950’s the Nelson Paint Company began manufacturing a product designed to be used by the forestry service to mark trees from a distance.

  • The product was a capsule filled with paint that was shot from a gun using compressed CO2.
  • The paint marking device was also used by ranchers to mark cattle.
  • The product was manufactured and sold by Nelson Paint Company.

 

Paintball actually started in the early 1980’s when three friends were finding some way to play a hunting game
without injuring each other. They were shown a paint marker gun in a catalogue and the idea of paintball was created.

The marker nelspot 007 was manufactured by Nelson Paint Company.

 

The first paintball game was played on a cross country skiing course on June 27 1981, with 12 friends competing against each other in playing the game capture the flag. Since then Paintball has exploded into a multimillion dollar sports game around the world and is the fastest growing sports game known today.
