Well, I was thinking about doing a writeup about general paintball safety. During my research I found a really cool website. It has such great information I figured I would give it directly to you instead of trying to cover it all myself. There is simply a lot of safety information all of you newbies need to digest. Even I learned a few new things. I suggest everyone take a good hard look at these. Safety is #1!!

Nice job compiling some great info for our new players (and great reminders for some of our seasoned vets!).

I went ahead and pinned it as well.

MOATI I haven't seen you post in awhile, or maybe I am just skipping over all of your posts. I haven't seen any more of your custom guns either. :(

very nice, heres somthing i learned today,
WELL WHERE DO I START ? i had a perfect day ,but there were a couple of casuallties,first Jamal got shot in the pecker (by David) in the 3erd game and left after that.Then Kevin and his brother left,so we decided to play WOLF,basicly you draw straws and short one is the wolf and you hunt the rest of players,and no one knows who the wolf is intil everyone is in position ,and looks if they have the short straw.Well so happen i was the wolf and hid on a ridge,saw David cross my path and i shot him ,now he was wolf too and had to help me hunt the other 2 players douwn,so together we flanked back twords the safety zone when we ran into Andrew and took him out,now there was 3 wolfs hunting the last player(Syrus)well this is where the second casualty took place,Andrew ran out of air and we were close to safety zone and i had backup air there to lend, so David proceeded to hunt Syrus down and Andrew and i was seting up his gun with fresh tank and we shot 2 rounds into the woods and thats when balls of fury flew back at us and I was shot in the face right below the eye(see pic) in the safety zone,by my own team mate (David)it was an accident but there is a lesson to be learned,When in a live game and there are no safety nets surrounding the safety zone or game area you should always wear a safty mask ,let that pic be a valuable lesson,i could have lost my eye or even my life,so till next time play safe everyone ,next weekend is mothers day so we will play on following sunday on 5/21/06,if ther are anything changes ill revise this date.
