Hey, Trying to start a back yard feild

Ok well me and a few other freinds. Have been thinking about starting up our own backyard field. One of my teamates has a nice spot behind his house. Wide enough and long enough for a nice 3 man field. So we were thinking we would buy some bunkers. We have decided that we are probaly gonna buy the 12 bunker set from ER for 578. Then we are gonna get a chrono. Now here comes my first question. I know the handheld and the Big red are good chrono but does any one know if this will work http://cgi.ebay.com/PROCHRONO-PLUS-C...QQcmdZViewItem it kinda looks like it would but not sure has anyone ever used one. Another thing any one know where I can get some cheap netting. It doenst even really have to be paintball netting cause its just for a backyard field. Should I try homedepot, walmart?? Also has any one tried out the new R2 bunkers if so how do they work. We might try to get a few on them in there too. Also if someone signed a liabilty form would that make sure we wouldn't get sued if someone got hurt. Not that i'm planning on it in fact we would take as many saftly precautions as we could ie.chrono mandotory barrel condoms, refs. But incase a accident did happen and everyone had signed liabilty formed could we still be sued. Any info/help is greatly appreriacted as I am new to this and need all the help I can get.

Also any one know how we could make some cheap armbands I was thinking some cloth plus velco. Or anyone know where we could get some cheap. I will try to get some pics up of the areas we have so far. We are also in the process of getting the exact measurement of the field.

If you are in a residential area, especially in a subdivision, large or small, you can pretty much forget about it. If the field is close to a road, you can probably forget it about it then too. Remember, if a paintball hits a windshield and causes an accident, its your fault.

These are all the things you need to get set up and in place first, after that, you can worry about netting, which is very expensive. Despite the fact that this is a backyard field, you will need high end netting, probably that which has been tested for paintball use, before insurance will consider it.

If you have a field you are going to have to have paintball netting. Otherwise the paintballs will go through. And yes even if everyone signs a waiver you can still be sued. You have to have insurance.

Listen to Fireman. As for the chrono. Check out some from www.shootingchrony.com. Very nice and very wallet friendly. Oh, and VERY accurate.

Yes I know luckly it is not in a residental area. No I don't want to accualy start a bussiness I was thinking about just having my freinds/teams in the area play on it. So I wouldn't buy any insurance. But thanks for the advice so far. Wiseguypb thanks for the website but I think I will just buy a big red on ebay or one used on here.

I also found that my netting from my trapoline will work ok. Reamber guys this isn't a real bussiness just a backyard field so that my team/other teams in the area can pratice on cause the closest field is about 1 and a half away.

Once you add "other teams" into the mix you are taking on a huge liability.

why does he need a dealers license or buisness license, this is just going to be for him and a few of his friends, insurance is not needed none of what u said is needed, its not going to be open to the public for walk ons....

The problem with the liability form you are talking about...or better known as a waiver, is any lawyer will try to work their way around it. Many times waivers do not stand up in court.
