all those people that think that shooting over the 300 fps is fine are idiots.

1)the reason that companies put the limit at around 300 fps is because product quality can vary. Also, if lense is shot repeatedly and weakens , and then a ball going way over the limit hit the lense, the lense could break with horrific repercussions.

2) if the ball hurts someone and is chronographed going faster than 300 fps, then you can get into trouble with the law and have to pay money, etc... Especially when you are at a friends house and not a real field.

3) There is always a chance of getting hurt even shooting at 300 fps.

4) Some argue that the ball slows down before it hits the target, but the companies/fields realized this when they chose to set their fps limit. Also, i can remember several times when someone shot me closer than 20 or maybe even 10 feet.

5) Do you really want to cause someone more pain than necessary? and if you do then maybe you shouldnt be playing violent sports.

6) Do you really want to be seen as a jerk?

&) probably more but i cant really think of anymore.

OK so i just started plaing again use to play a lot and was a decent player. So i just got my gun and bought cleats and all, playing airball today my cleats caught the gravile when i was sliding and then next thing i know i hear this sound of bone cracking like wood breaking, im home on my bed icing my ankle rite now. x- ray tomarrow and if its broke im ****ed.

Anyways i just think if someone is shooting to give paine to others your messed up and need a beat down.
Next thats scary if a ball going 300+ cant break a hopper or pod, if i found out someone knew their gun was shooting that fast, i would be waiting for that person outside grab his gun after hes been kick and **** him up, like seriously grab his gun and break it in to pieces. If he injurred me i would sue his *** and make my settlement before i start my real job after college.

Paintball is played for the fun and thrill,

I second that. Maybe if he is over 100 years old, but probably not. I've been shot point blank in the back of the head by a gun that was later chronoed at 330fps. I've been hit many times by guns that chronoed at 375+, and I'm fine. I didn't enjoy it, but I didn't have any injuries. This was a long time ago, before 300 was even established as a limit.

I'm not trying to justify people shooting over 300, I'm just saying that a lot of you are overexaggerating about the dangers of shooting over 300. I'm completely fine with 300 - plenty of range, and you lose accuracy by shooting any harder than that.

Most indoor places are around 250 fps in Canada... Speedball is 260 fps-280fps (rarely 280 though).

I think all guns should be limited to around 320 fps but its kinda hard to do that since its really hard to limit old guns and other markers.

It's very easy to do that, but 300 FPS is the limit where fingers start to break, that's the real reason the velocity limit was put in place anyways.

It's unlikely your fingers are gonna break, but a small child's or someone who has brittle fingers, I could see them getting broken.

dude if you shoot 450 bps then how many solenoids have you had. it would break ur solenoid. and 150 bps will go no where and destorys the thrill of paintball. also military people go to the military to get killed and we dont want to die . if i wanted to go id be there. we play paintball for fun not to get hurt.

that made no sense at all... 450 fps would do nothing to your solenoid, and I dont think anyone said anything about 150bps

ok for first hand experience (I'm in the army) the reason you dont hear anything bad about this is because we wear all our combat gear (vest,helmet, and all that extra stuff) and even one of those boxing padded cups. We go into a regular house and train clearing out rooms. so we do infact get shot from maybe 4-5 feet away. eitherway it still hurts like crazy but no one whines because they dont want to be that guy

no masks broken yet *crosses fingers, knocks on wood, prays*

For renegade ballers (like myself) who can't play at an actual field all the time.

We built a speedball field out of, ahem, "legitimately acquired" barrels, tires, and plywood. It was fun, until my friend thought it would be a laugh to turn his velocity screw all the way out. The game started, and my friend bunkered a kid, forgetting that he was shooting incredibly hot, and a paintball hit a kid right in the mask.

After we got back from the emergency room, we did a few things.

1. Order a Chrono. You need one. We just have a cheapy yellow one, but it works just fine.

2. Set a velocity. Becuase our field is nowhere near NPPL size, the velocity is 275.

3. Post a set of rules near where you play, in big laminated posterboard.

4. If you have newbies playing, make a 10 foot no bunker rule. If it's not fun for them, will they ever come back?

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
Yeah Los I saw a thread today showing proof that it was bullet proof... Sounds very weird but he shot it and had pics up... search for it

here is a funnny thing i have a group of friends that dont tkae the sport seriously they go tto the mountains and play with walmart guns. when they go their guns are chronoed to the max so that meens like 500. I use this to my advantage thos guns can barely shoot and when they do the ball is going through a barrel filled with glue at high velocito u know what happens they curve. my marker shoots ball on ball so when i get them ball on ball i teach hem velocity doesnt matter

There was a thread somewhere where a guy shot some FMJ rounds at a grill lens and they didnt even penetrate. I feel safe in mine.

Also why don't marker companies limit the speed of markers to 300 fps. Is it do-able? If yes why haven't they yet?
