the best way to do is to just get a chrono and adjust the volocity to around 280. if the fps is over 300 or around 330 it will brake the lense on your googles. iv seen this at a field before the owner kicked him out for it on purpose to hurt someone and the kids eye got replaced by a paintball because the lense broke..

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...
It can still be over 300 FPS.

Seriously, playing without a chronograph is dumb, go buy one. Playing with your velocity knowingly jacked up is stupider, take up a new hobby that doesn't involve guns or projectiles.

who ever said I shoot over 300?

And why is 300fps such a horrible thing? What makes it so different then 295, which wont set off the chrono alarm?

You should leave room for fluctuation and at my field the limit is 280, so yes, it will set it off.

My team usually have a Chrono in Hand. But sometimes if the Chrono has no batteries we stand at a Distance and shoot at a pole, and when it hits the pole, it hits when the ball starts going down. Thats how we do it, sometimes.

we used to play without cronies way back when and no one really got hurt.. a few bleeders but thats about it... even in the balls once lol... when we finaly got a crony we tested a few of our old guns since we all upgraded from spyders, mine was shooting 390 but i had already lowered the spring that i used to have so at one point it was probly shooting over 400fps... all i can say is that the hits just dont feel as bad anymore but yeah it wasnt the smartest thing of us to do lol

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).

Los
poopman is correct, there was a thread a while back about someone shot a grill.
didnt break at all.

and to all the people saying your lense will break at 375fps, you guys are dumb.

and i shot a pm6 i got in a trade, chrono'd 423... not a single ball broke.
it had a vast amount of kick though.



EDIT: thread about grills is here, http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=2395940

shooting a significant amount over 300 is unsafe for rec play

rec gear is no made to withstand repeated use of paintballs at high velocity.

While it is true that military training and police training they have velocity at over 500 fps. They also have specialized safety equipment and are not supposed to get hit. So when they get hit , as a reminder not to get hit, they end up with missing skin and sometimes cracked bones at that velocity.

And they proof that velocity over 300fps is unsafe is that 300FPS IS THE INDUSTRY STANDARD!!!!

for those of you that are not youngsters the safety factor on most gear should be in the 1.3-1.6 range

If someone shoots a person with any paintball gun, and it leaves more than a bruise or a slight cut (which can happen with even low velocities) then it can be called an assault.
If we keep doing stupid things like shooting people that has no safety equipment on or shooting other people's property, then our sport will be regulated so harshly that only the people that can afford the "permit" will be able to play. And thats IF they have a field that is "Government Approved" to play at.

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.
if your shooting 450 why the **** are you playing thats not even close to legal its *****es like you that make first timers never come back

320 breaking ribs? That's straight up bull****. I've been hit with 320 before. It doesn't do much more than sting like hell and cause a bad welt.

my co-worker had quite a story about a tourney he played in. They were playing a team from cuba, and forgetting the wiping and overshooting, he had been shot out and went to the dead box. He saw the other 3 of his teamates standing with their packs off, held in front of them against the net. Somehow, paintballs were going through 2 layers of netting and hitting them in the deadbox, so they were trying to protect themselves with their harnesses.

The refs blew the game dead and chronoed the team, and they all were shooting above 350. The balls had not only gone through 2 layers of netting, they had broken the pods that were still in the harnesses.
