hurting more Why up the FPS
Posted 26 July 2007 - 02:35 AM
What really kills me is that when some of these kids get caught with their markers shooting hot, they cry about it. I saw one kid refuse to go off the field. The ref had to grab the back of this kid's jersey to get him off the field. The whole time this kid was like I've got my tools right here, I'll fix it. Understandably, the velocity can creep up. I had my A5 set for the 285 fps and 2 hours later, it was up around 290. Of course, I ended up losing the velocity screw that day.
One thing that some of these individuals need to realize is that some one out there is waiting to get hurt by one of these idiots. There will be a law suit and there will be an attempt at criminal charges.
Paintball does not need another black eye. I certainly don't want the sport banned but law makers don't look at the good they will only see the bad. That's generally all they ever see, is the bad. These idiots need to realize that they could possibly ruin the sport for millions.

Just remember folks, only you can prevent permanent bruising... =o And if you don't abide by the rules...the ref will pwn you with a mallet.

Well that sounds a little bit harsh, but they deserve it!
I have seen a mask lens break from a paintball before. Nobody was wearing it luckily, but it still makes you think how easy it really is to get injured because someone is too stupid or arrogant to keep their velocity down.
Some guys were shooting an old mask that they had tied around a wooden post. One guy cranked up his velocity to a VERY high level, probabyl around 400 or higher. After three shots, the paintball went right through the mask!
Of course, it was a MonsterBall, and as we all know, those things are like marbles!
One thing I can say, though, is that the Monster Ball did, in fact, break. That ends our myth that Monster Balls are like Superman's eyeballs!

Also, that mask was pretty messed up. I can't even see what happened to it. The lens cracked and the lens frame seperated from the mask, right?
the mask lens poped out of the mask and was cracked and sent shards of glass plastic into your eyes if they were behind it

Now what exactly do you mean by this?
Did it hit him and leave a small ripped hole in his shirt?
Did it hit a loose part of his shirt and go through the whole thing?
I doubt a paintball could rip someone's shirt off, but I think it is possible for it to go through or leave a small hole.
