The dangers of shooting over 300 fps

My freinds are being dicks and adjusting their velocities themselves, without any way of measuring their velocity, so how do i go about explaining to them how its not a good idea

tell them to shoot themselves first :nododgy: then they'll realize
A.) its dangerous
B.) if they are purposly doing it to hurt ppl, that it'll hurt that much, and that just goes to show how if they have any sort of moral at all
C.) doing it without the intention of shooting sumone to hurt them, just yeah, repeat of B

That was not a coherent thought.

The only way to reliably chrono a gun is by using a chrono. I don't play renegade ball for that reason and most renegade ballers are idiots and cause 95% of all paintball injuries and vandalisms.

If your velocity is too high, hurt more (around 300+) it may crack/break lenses (325+) and balls will explode before they can leave the barrel (375+)

They can break a goggle lense and permanently blind someone for life.

Just as an FYI, I've chrono'd Autocockers that were near 400fps...the ball has to stay intact to be chrono'd. I don't know the logistics, maybe depending on the shell, but yikes...not a good thing.

300 FPS is the internationally-recognized maximum velocity because it is the threshold at which bones, especially thin ones like in the hand, can break.

Bud Orr developed the velocity limit way back because he saw kids with broken fingers. He went to a doctor and asked what was the pressure at which fingers break. He did the math and set the universal velocity at 300. I forgot the exact velocity at which fingers break, but after 300 fingers dont only break, but lenses crack. that doesnt heal.

Vforce lenses wont break with a bullet so your eyes are safe with them.

"Vforce lenses wont break with a bullet so your eyes are safe with them."

What kind of idiotic statement is this? You think your vforce lenses are bullet proof? Most bullet proof glass isn't even bullet proof if you shoot it a few times let alone some paintball goggles. Don't take your safety for granted. It requires your active attention (like putting the cabash on fools that are cranking up their velocity intentionally, friends or not).

How is shooting over 300 stupid? Unless you're playing indoors you shouldn't even have guns over 150 fps. I play with a 450 fps AK Rap4 outside in super large fields. If you're dumb enough to go outside with a shirt on and shorts with no protection then don't whine about getting hurt with guns that shoot over 300 fps. Unless your Mask is crap, a shot of even 450 fps wont break there lens. Military training is done with guns that shoot 450 + fps, such as rap4 guns. You don't hear them crying about it.
