depends on your location. I do snap shooting drills and breakout drills in my back yard with no issues. I'd check to see if you have ccnr's for you neighborhood and you could always call your local police station and ask.

I don't think the cops will pull a gun that easily in a residential neighborhood.

Just go tell the neighbors who are legally blind that you play paintball so if they see you with what may appear to be weapons they probably are not... they'll probably be chill about it.

Also, call your local PD. It depends from area to area and city to city. Seeing as we have no idea what locale you're from we're unable to call the local PD for you.

No one would give a **** if you running around with you paintball gun and slaiding in your backyard. Dont worry. Even if it was illegal the cops porbabyl wouldnt give a **** either. Which im 99.9999% sure its perfectly fine.

why are you scared of calling the police station to ask about rules/regulations?

Depending on your area. I know in my town Oakdale, MN it's illegal to shot anything, gun, paintball marker, airsoft, even a sling shot.

I suppose they could make a fuss about it. Saying your walking around with a firearm (some area's lump paintball markers in with firearms and BB guns)

Check your towns website most of them have a list of City Ordinances. The one for my town was under the ordinance for "Offenses".

Quote from Oakdale, MN firearm Ordinance.


Sec. 13-6. Unlawful Discharge. Except as hereinafter provided, no person shall discharge a firearm
of any kind, bow and arrow, air gun, BB gun, sling shot or any similar device for the propulsion of
shots or metal pellets by means of compressed air, gas, or mechanical spring action within the city;
provided, however, that no rifle shall be discharged within the city for any purpose whatsoever.


(except they go on to say you can discharge in self-defense or to protect your property)

If you tell me what town and state you live in, I could do some research for you.

I live in the suburbs, I shoot my gun all the time and practice snap shooting with reballs and all that. My neighbor, next door neighbor, is a cop. He has never said anything, he thinks its cool that I paintball, one time he even shot my gun.

I have power lines running behind my house. So naturally I had to attempt to shoot the transformers. Next day in the newspaper on the page that shows local crimes it said "Criminal Mischief: Vehicle struck by paintball" followed by the name of the street behind my house. I lawl'd.
