Idiot brother in law because apparently cranking your fps up to the max is safe

So yeah, I've decided against playing with my brother in law until he lets me cronograph his marker and prove to him that it is unsafe.

It's like this weird issue I ran into my Tippmann 98C the other day...velocity screw all the way in, almost every shot over 300...
So the field says, try cutting a coil or two off your drive spring (I was using the TechT ZKH, but not for the first time...it had given me LOW velocity issues before). I did so.
It began shooting around 280...but still, over 290 (field limit) and 300.
Cut off two more...fired around 250, some around 275...5/30 shots over 290 and 1 over 300 still. I gave it to them to repair because I was at a total loss, and they called and said they fixed it the next day though they said it would be a week. I'm gonna be PO'ed if they just put the stock hammer and spring back in, because I have both the originals and could have done so myself.
Think it's some sort of valve problem?

that's basically what I've decided to do. He hardly ever plays really, I was just inviting him to come with me, but not any more.

This. Seriously. If he's willing to let you shoot him with his own marker from 10' away you MIGHT reconsider playing with him. You get to take 3 shots: one to the torso, one to the thigh and one to the back (Kidneys are always nice).
Stipulations that would keep you from playing with him: If he screams, if he drops to the ground, if he swears or if the shot causes him to bleed.
Don't tell hem what order you're going to shoot him in, but shoot the thigh first. No matter what thigh you choose, tell him his gun doesn't shoot that straight, you were aiming for the other one, "good thing it didn't hit you in the crotch".
When doing the torso shot, hit about 2 or 3 inches above the nipples and dead center, "I was shooting at your belly, good thing I wasn't aiming higher or it might have hit you in the throat".
For the back, take your pick of the kidneys or tail bone.
I'd bet he'll change his mind about a safe velocity.
I'd use Monsterballs to make the point, but I'm just evil that way.
If he agrees, PLEASE video tape it and post on youtube.
