I got shot in the thumb with a gun about 5 meters away with 360+ fps. All that happened was my thumb felt like a belt whipped it and it was stinging for a few seconds. Nothing even broke, and it was better the day after. Some people must have bones like sticks.

so youre suggesting that military personnel have the same pain threshold as normal recreational paintballers?

bottom line read the warnings on your mask or mask instructions.

I think of all the warnings involving paintball equipment the goggles should be most followed and attended to. Im not saying the other warnings are are less meaningfull but think about it the mask is the most important peice of your equipment.

read the warnings and tell me its safe to shoot over 300.

This is the stupidest thing ive every heard. If a gun shoots over 300 it can break a lense. 450 can probably break you're head open. Also if you you shoot 150fps, you won't hit anything. And in military training they don't go that high, thats just plain retarded and your making this up

Lenses are rated up to about 500fps... or they wouldnt make guns that could go that high... and you dont ever get hit at the chrono velocity... that velocity is the speed out of the barrel... not 40+ feet away...

this guy is a freakin idoit
OMG LOL ROFLCOPTER SOI SOI SOI!

I hope you forgot the dodgy, if you didn't, blow all of your equipment up, and never do anything related to paintball again, ever.

Kids, always play under 300 FPS, no matter if the lense can take a bullet, or if it didn't break before, I don't care. The mask was designed to take multiple shots under 300 FPS from a distance greater than 10 feet away for up to a year. After that, you need to replace the lense because the strength of it reduces. Not to mention getting hit by a gun shooting hot hurts a lot, and turns players away from the game.

Crank up your own velocity, nail them all then explain why it's a bad idea.

My friend got shot in the butt with a gun that was later chrono'd at 387fps. Still has a scar and it was bleeding for awhile.

did you seriously cry?


i've been bunkered by an ion-kid (what we call em down here) who was using CO2 that he chrono'd at 8:30 AM on a summer morning (cool Texas mornings) then didnt re-crono until a ref literally jerked the gun from his hand after he got shot from roughly 150 ft by this kid and he bled. this was about 5 PM. the ****ing kid chrono'd at 4-****ing-30. he got off pretty easy, having a stock ion is the equivalent of saying "im new" around here. so no one was too pist......except for that ref.

yeah, when have you ever been hit by a 400fps paintball?

people need to realize that the chrono speed isnt the impact velocity, its the velocity leaving the barrel, and Ive never shot someone from <12" before...
