Our product line originated as Tagline Incorporated in 1994. Brian Sullivan designed the original product, the TS1, as the ultimate paintball gun. His design was both beautiful and radical. Nothing like it had ever been developed.
In 1997 Maureen Steinwall acquired the company and renamed it Advanced Tactical Systems. Additional models were developed for the military and police to provide realistic, non-lethal, force-on-force training. Unlike conventional paintball markers that rely on gravity to feed a ball into the breech, the ATS guns use a magazine similar to a real weapon. The magazine design allows the gun to emulate the performance and feel of the M-16. ATS quickly became the world leader in military simulation paintball guns.
The same high quality methodology respected in the tactical training field is now available to you, the serious recreational player, through Get Real™ Paintball. Get Real is committed to providing an extreme recreational experience through the most realistic product on the market. Get Real.
