Whats up with all the people wanting there gun to hurt more. I mean were not trying to kill each other we had one n00b turn velocity up from 260 to 325 because he wanted it to go farther and hurt more.thats no way to play paintball be sportsmen like shoot at under 300fps over that could injure someone and to be honest you won't hit anything ant 325 the owner of the field has 98c and shoots at 220fps and his gun with the 14'' barrel he has is wvery accurate and quiet he doens't crank velocity up but his balls bust everytime without hurting anyone. I know paintball is supposed to hurt some but try not to kill each other :ninja:

I get that alot at the shop i work it. I ge asked alot "which gun hurts more, i want the guys i play with to get hurt when i shoot em. I dont sell them stuff.
Also if you use good paint it realy doesnt hurt as much. If it breaks easily on you it wont hurt as much

Also, sometimes people who want to be a sniper take the term to literally and crank up the velocity "to add range and accuracy."

I have never heard of a ball being more accurate because the velocity is higher. And as for range, the ball won't be accuratt that far anyways.

we have a policy at the field i play at, if you are caught doing it once, you are warned, you get caught doing it twice, you are asked to leave the field for the day, get caught again, dont ever come back!!

people need to realise that this is outdoors activity to help people bond and have fun, its people like that would do something as silly as this that makes me appreciate the weapons laws we have regarding paintball markers here in Australia.

but as players it is our responsibility to paintball and the people that play it to help police it and set a good image of paintball especially woodsball.
dont make people a priority, who are only making you an option

Yeah, shooting hot is bad. I'll pull you for a game if I catch you shooting hot and ask the owner to remove you after the second time.

Not related to shooting hot, but we had an adult out on the field last weekend. He was on a the field sidelines after he got eliminated during a game with his mask off shooting his marker. Trout told him repeatedly to put his mask on. He refused every time with something along the lines of "I know the dangers and I take responsibility" yada yada... Trout informed the owner and this individual was asked to leave. We used him as an example to the other groups we reffed that day.

Bottom line is, if you break safety rules because you're stupid, you will be asked to leave. A field has a reputation to uphold and we don't want kids getting the wrong idea about safety. Wear your mask and shoot safely!

We want it to hurt more be cause we're manly men doing manly men things.
If if hurts more, it's more manly :rolleyes:

People are stupid, that's the short and simple answer.

i HATE people who do this. i have someone on my team i played with at the scenario i went to earlier this month get shot in the side of the mask and it hit so hard the ball bounced and it also swelled his eye shut. all because just don't abide by the safety rules and crank up their FPS after chrono

People around here say that...I never play with them. The best explanation is stupidity. It's not even fun when it hurts that much.

It must make them more masculine. :ghillie:

Its fine and dandy to up FPS when not playing I do that but never on a field of play I put my A-5 on 400fps chronoed with Co2 and placed an old mask 20-25 ft away within 3 shots in the general area the mask had cracked and bent inward and one also went thru the plastic on the side

Well my gun shoots about 200 yards when i put my sniper barrel on it. And if I turn up the velocity to 400 fps I can get it to hit a dime from 250 yards. :ghillie: :ninja: :panzer:

Did you like my "Super Dodgy"?

I hate it when people turn up their velocity. The only time it is a good thing is when they are shooting Monster Balls; it will hurt less because the balls might actually bust :D

Well that's what I use them for. They are a better deal than practice balls because you get more for the money, the only problem is that every once in a while one breaks, and it leaves a mess. :P

:D :D :D

EDIT: Forgot my super dodgy!

:D :dodgy: :P
