On Feburary 16th 2021, the Trudeau Liberals brought Bill C-21 to the table, redefining the categorization of 99% of airsoft guns and many Paintball Markers as prohibited devices.
What does this mean for the industry? Ultimately, it's complete demise of Airsoft and any magfed Paintball.
If this Bill passes into law, the airsoft and part of the Paintball industry in Canada would be no more. Our jobs, our industry and worst of all, our hobby will be lost.

Now more than ever, we need the community to come together and Save both Industry's from this completely unnecessary and nonsensical Bill.
We've added tentative dates to our 2021 schedule which can be found on our Operations page. These dates will remain in a "Play it by ear" to so what/if any changes COVID decides to pull. ie: Lockdowns, Outbreaks etc.
We remain positive that our 2021 season will be even better than last years; please contact us if you want to learn how to play or just curious to try it out.
Frontline is super excited about our most recent purchase - 44 inflatable bunkers! This means that our speedball team will be able to practice in Kenora rather than traveling two and a half hours to Winnipeg in order to play.
We have portable Air, a steady stream of Paintballs and now Bunkers.
Things are looking up!
We've finally moved from private groups and private chats on Facebook and created our official Team Pages on both Instagram and Facebook. Currently theres not a bunch of content as of yet, however we have hired a photographer for team profiles and in action shots/videos.
We're hoping to have all of that online as soon as we can.
In the mean time, please give our pages a follow: @flepaintball
Recently Frontline received sponsorships from Virtue Paintball, Bunkerkings, and a local company Nufuzion Design. What does this mean for us?
It means more affordable access to some of the best equipment and the ability to show off our sponsors on our Jersey's and hopefully if we play our cards right, increased exposure and more tournaments. We hope this may help get a local Paintball field and recreation park started here in Kenora as well.
Its in the early stages of planning to say the least, however things are coming together. We haven't advertised our fundraising efforts as of yet due to the whole Coronovirus situation that we're all facing, but hope to get back to the planning as soon as possible.
We did hear that there may be some other people locally who are considering opening a field as well, but nothing concrete. We are accepting donations, or any other assistance that can help. If you're interesting, please contact us.
