Originally on the A-5 Owners Group by Gotpaint92 said:

I just wanted to make this thread for all the other Young guns on A-5OG. Most of the people here on this forum are level headed, serious players, so this is mainly for the newer players.

I know how it is if you have friends that play, they probably play outlaw style. BEFORE you play outlaw ball check that your friends aren't complete morons:
  • Do Your friends wear masks?
  • Do They use BBDs (barrel blocking device)?
  • Do they use a chronograph?
  • Are they playing in a legal area (ie: permission from owner, rural area)
  • Are your friends they type to crank up the velocity past a safe level?

DO NOT:
  • Feel obligated to play if you are uncomforable playing with them.
  • Get caught up in a competition with these players that leads to unsafe situations
  • Fire at an unmasked player.
  • Fire at cars, houses etc. (see below)
  • Cheat, you'll play plenty of games and you'll get very good at this sport. You won't need to wipe and ramp to do that.
  • Make any modifications to you mask, marker, or co2/HPA tank that could possibly be hazardous
  • Put anything other than paintballs into your hopper
  • Fire frozen paintballs

Here's my thing about shooting cars and houses: This is the stupidest thing I have ever heard of. How is that fun? Really I'd like to know how people find that cool. Let's think about it for a moment: you are firing something the size of a nickel at something that's big enough to comfortably transport or shelter several people. Second, neither cars or houses shoot back. How do you have fun shooting at something that's next to impossible to miss and doesn't return fire? The most importent reason though is the sport itself, if you want to go do something stupid go do something you saw on MTV instead of wrecking the name of an already steriotyped sport.

Other Safety Points:
  • Finger off the trigger
  • Safety on
  • Barrel bags on
  • Masks on
  • Marker pointed in safe direction
  • Don't point your marker at anything you don't intend to shoot.
  • If you've take a hunter safety course, use your firearm safety knowledge from the class
  • Treat every gun as if it were loaded (Paintball gun)


Another note for new players: The biggest thing in paintball is RESPECT! Respect the power of a paintball gun, respect your fellow players, respect yourself. The point of paintball is not solely to shoot at other people, at the end of the day what matters most is that you had fun, you earned respect, and maybe made a couple new friends.

I Originally posted this on the A5OG and I was visiting this forum for the first time in a long time, I figured I'd post this up here too.

Another thing you can do to be safe at a private field is TAKE CARE OF THE FIELD. Mark the boundaries of the field. You can go to Wal-Mart to the tools dept and look for surveyors tape. It's just bright orange ribbon. It's only $1.00 a roll so buy all they have. Put it about waist high all the way around the field. You can also use it to mark hazards such as- Holes you might step in. poison oak, poison ivy, or poison sumac. Research these plants so you'll know what they look like. Huge ant hills. Barbed wire. Every 6 months or so have a field refurbication day. Get all the regulars to come out one day to work on the field. Clear paths, remove trip hazards, build and repair bunkers, etc. Keep a first aid kit handy. Make a map to the nearest hospital with emergency phone numbers for the hospital, police, and fire. Then make copies and give everybody one. Be safe.

Overall good. I should also mention that if you think there's any possible way you could hit something you shouldn't from any point on the field, you need to go farther. Ideally, you shouldn't even be able to SEE anything you don't intend to get hit from the field. And if you're not traveling on dirt roads at some point to get to your outlaw field, it's probably not far enough.

Good point. Our field is in the middle of no where at the end of a dead end road. No chance of hitting ANYTHING we don't intend to and much less chance of someone driving by and freaking out over seeing people wearing masks and carrying what looks like guns.
