My name is James “Jimmy” Martin and I have been playing Paintball at Panther since 2003 and a staff member since 2006.
2015 is a special year as We have assembled a new management team and it represents my 10th year playing competitive Paintball.
I started out as a volunteer to help offset playing costs/learn more about the technical aspects of the sport and 10 years later I am still learning new things as our managing director and playing on a weekly basis.
The sport of Paintball has been a positive and pivotal influence in my personal and professional life giving me many opportunities to travel and meet people who have enriched my life in all aspects.
As a competitive player and technician I look forward to sharing my passion, technical knowledge and playing skills with every customer and player who wishes to chase the dream of living the Paintball Life.
I started at Panther the same time as Airsoft did, because our paths have been very intertwined, from the first rental guns at panther to my first gun bought at Panther, all come from Airsoft. My first gun bought at Panther was the G&G UMG and it’s still my favorite gun today, following that I have a long list that you’ll see on the field sometime.
I find myself thinking about Airsoft more than I should at times and that may come from the many years playing. Whether figuring out the next step for a game or what would be a unique form of Airsoft entertainment, the environment at panther has fueled the creation of my personal team; Red Team. I value the team started at panther because it holds the same values, anyone can play until you choose not to and everyone is welcome.
P.S. Hi Laura!

She looks forward to what the future holds for Panther with the expansion of Panther Adventure Sports Park. P.S. Hi Elliott!

Brayden’s life changed forever in the summer of 2014, when he attended his first airsoft night game. Brayden realized he had a huge passion for airsoft and wanted to pursue his new found interest. Brayden started playing and volunteering at Panther as often as he could. Due to his dedication and passion to Panther, Brayden was offered a job in the summer of 2015! Brayden’s favourite airsoft guns are the Tokyo Marui Glock 17, A&K PKM, and his newest addition to his airsoft gun collection, the Ares Amoeba AM-013 (Honey Badger).

P.S. Hi Laura, Elliott, and Zach!
Referee / Operations
Zach has been a part of the Panther community for years. Starting off as a paintball player but quickly transitioned to the Airsoft scene. You can find him at panther almost every weekend and if he’s not working he’s probably here playing or helping out. Zach is very proud to be a part of such a wonderful group of friends and to call panther his home away from home.
P.S. Hi Laura
Hey there, I’m Devin “Encyclopedia” Dhillon. You may know me as “that one airsoft tech who talked your ear off for an hour”. I’ve been a member of the Panther airsoft community since 2013 and I’ve loved every moment of it.
I got my start in airsoft by using the guns and kit as props in film making in 2010. Over the years, I grew an immense passion for playing airsoft along with fixing and upgrading airsoft guns. I have been teching for as long as I have been playing, working on countless guns over the years. Airsoft, or “BB Wars” as I and many others affectionately refer to it as, has become a very large part of my life. There are very few things that I love more than aiding in the growth of the airsoft and paintball communities as a whole.
Hope to see you out there, soon.
Favourite Rifles: VFC XCR, KWA G36K, A&K ACR, G&G Combat Machine Series
