MEET MADD MAXX!
Max Sprinkle, our 2 time pistol tournament champion, is stepping down to help in training the next tournament competitors!
Max has been shooting live-fire weapons and airsoft for 5 years, extensively for 3 and competitively for 2 years. He began shooting Limited Division using an FNP-45 and recently switched to a 1911 platform in Single Stack for the challenge. The skills and training he has learned in real steel competitions directly translate to his unique style of airsoft game play.
He began playing airsoft in 2011 at VIPAirsoft, utilizing an Echo1 P90 bull-pup. During one of the first lock-ins, he had the opportunity to play only equipped with a Caspian Dragon Hi-Capa GBB pistol and instantly found his niche. He sold the P90 and bought a Sig 226 with a handful of spare mags, pouches and other accessories for his new load-out. Almost immediately, he began tweaking his equipment to suit his needs; adding hogue grips and tight bore inner barrels and eventually modified his AEG tight bore to fit below a mock suppressor. These performance upgrades guaranteed him competitive velocities with AEGs as well as being able to fire a full mag worth of BBs on a single charge of gas, something not always possible with a GBB pistol.
Having won the previous 2 pistol tournaments hosted at VIPAirsoft, he feels the need to step up into a more active role helping newer competitors grow and develop skills as shooters, both in active game play and on a competitive level. His goal is to help create a long lasting positive impact on airsoft as a whole and to help keep it fun!
