I play woodsball games with my friends.
A while ago I bought a chronograph. Execpt whenever I try the use it the constant whines of "it takes to long" and "it doesnt matter" come up. Now, im beginning to wounder. Does it matter? Or is it a so called "unless waste of time?" Is there a good reason or story I could give them to make them understand the importance of a chronogrpah?

No one wants to have their mask give way and end up with shards of a lense in their eyes...

Does that work?

GuitarSlave, just getting a high quality mask will NOT save you. Really, you need to replace the lenses at least once a year if not twice a year.
According to the manufacterers, after one or hit from about <8 yards you are supposed to throw that lense away and replace it with a brand new one.

I think I just need to refuse to play until every one is chronoed. I know at least one person is shooting at an extremely high velocity.

I replace my lenses pretty often. (although i must admit. it's pretty hard to replace my rose colored proflex lens seeing as they stopped making them two years ago. I still find new ones here and there though.

Well while yes, it is good to chrono, if you are using HPA I'd chrono once and you'd probably be alright. I know that my gun has been consistantly shooting 285-287 for over 5 months.

You gas up the marker, put on the gloves, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed a test, that your girlfriend broke up with you last night, or that you got a ticket on the way there...your world is right for the next couple hours, this is your heaven on earth... live it... love it..

How the hell could you stop me? Why in the world would you try? I go hard forever that's just how I'm designed, that's just how I was built.

Well it's a welt this big, o, or a welt this big, 0.

You see my logic?

It hurts more, ruins the fun, high danger risk. 20 seconds tops to fully tune your gun. Just do it. Don't argue.

A few good reasons...

1. It's the smart thing to do.

2. Nobody likes to get shot by markers shooting hot.

3. Shooting hot dramatically increases the chance for injury.

4. It doesn't take that long to properly chrono.

5. It's a good habit to get into.

6. It gives you an idea of what speed your marker shoots the best.


Redleg you nailed it there, I totaly agree. I have bought a chrono myself not too long ago. I don't feel like getting injured because of something that could have been avoided.

Hi, Im 1-i, whenever you wonder if its a good idea to skip a recomended safty step you should really think about my name and what it means.

if you dont know what it means then you should consult my medical file and realise that not doing even the simplest things can lead to major mishaps and medical bills.

i wish that was the case with c02, one week i was outside and was shooting under 280, the next week i was inside and shooting well over 370, i believe that the co2 expanded and gave me a higher preasure inside but i had to turn my velocity screw all the way in before it began to go down...i hate co2!

Give them an ultimatum, either they chrono, or you walk. Getting shot at 320fps in the throat sucks.
There is absolutley no good reason on earth to not chrono every time you play.

Agreed. Hot guns makes it dangerous. Do the safe thing and chrono. Maybe you could teach everyone how to do it on their own so they dont have to wait for you.
