Do you mean getting shot by a paintball? Or getting splattered? Splatter happens whenever you're next to a net. It's just life.

Getting shot is different. My friend got lucky and had a narrow miss when a ball broke on the bleachers next to him. Last year at Vegas, he got shot in the ear. Maybe I should avoid him.

My friend next to me got hit. Saw the broken shell and everything. I got splatter on me. Its understandable though. Paint bouncing off of bunkers and all, I don't mind.

Yeah lol that happened a lot.

I didn't like the pits at the end of the field on the pro fields. That was stupid.

If by getting "shot" you mean getting hit by paintballs that bounce off bunkers and careen over the netting then yes, that happened a few times.

Sounds like you all should have bobbed and then weaved instead of weave and then bob. Remember that.

The netting is not ripping, the paint is bouncing off the bunkers traveling 300FPS and into the stands. It is going to happen.

In the grandstands the most my party and I suffered were light taps from balls bouncing off bunkers. Nothing exploded on us and they didn't hurt. I guess we got lucky.

Don't think its still traveling full speed, but the only way to prevent it is put the players in a glass box

It'll stay this way until someone gets seriously injured or someone makes a big deal about it.

or extend the netting to go higher. Or you can also put a top on the netting; that would require supports in the field though I would imagine.

oh you could also lower the level of the stands so they're always below the nets.
