don't post if your going to say something stupid.
I have a personal experience w/ an almost eye injury.
When i started playing paintball about 4 years ago, i was playing in the woods. I thoughti was hit in the mask, so i took it off and checked it for paint. Very dumb decision. This was maybe the 3rd or 4th time i ever played. Another player shot a few shots toward me and thump!, one hits me close to my eye, so near that i thoughti was actually hit in the eye and i kept it closed. The weird part about it, was that i didn't feel it at all, i felt no pain whatsoever. I eventually found that the ball had struck me right below my left eye. I had a bruise and it swelled i ould see the swelling out of my eye, if the ball was any higher i may have had the same experience that this player had.
In conclusion, i have always worn my mask from then on and i'm very strict about safety. Barrel condoms on, even when i play in the woods.
