High pressure issue

How do you know if someone on the field who is supposed to be using a lower pressure has now cranked up the psi during play. I see that as an unfair advantage but also as a possible safety risk for all other players. Do you call him out on it or man up and just endure the shots.

If you feel a player is shooting "hot" ask a ref to check him. There is no need for someone going out and hurting other people by doing that.

I guess the ref should check again to see if that person has a higher psi but the damage was already done. Completely ruins the fun out of paintball.

Just a note....they don't check your PSI. They check your velocity or "re-chrono" them. It's not the same thing. If you asked a ref to check a players PSI he would probably look at you strange

Wow, this was the best question I've seen in a loooooong time in the beginner's section.

Mad props.


Also: everything these guys above me have said is 100% correct.

It's velocity not psi. And yea, always tell a ref.

At my field, there are no refs, which makes shooting at a legal velocity an honor-based system. Sure, signs tell you to chrono at 280, but there's no one there to enforce it. Once I had these kids who thought it would be great fun to chrono their guns at 350fps (these were numbers pulled after the incident, I'm inclined to think that's what they were shooting). Well, I ended up getting shot seven times in the left side from point-blank range. I still bear the scars on my side and that spot is still tender almost four months later. I yelled quite a bit at them, I tried being civil, I tried threatening and nothing worked. Finally, the next game I simply put a few more shots on them than I needed to to eliminate them. They finally decided to chrono after taking a nice long rope or two from me and it turned out they were shooting nearly 70fps over the limit. If you see someone shooting hot, don't let it slide! You could seriously damage someone!

For the tl;dr people, some guys were shooting hot (350), I tried different ways to deal with them before finally lighting them up next game (after much negotiation).

Wait.....I'm lost. Exactly how does a field operate with no refs? I could imagine tons of problems arising aside from velocities.

Probably because it's not a real field, just a really popular outlawball field.

Also, regarding the topic: Refs would be stupid not to be on top of velocities. Fields can lose their insurance (or just not be able to afford it) from incidents where the staff is at fault.

So basically his entire post was pointless then lol. You are playing outlaw balls then you have no real rules

That's not entirely true. Anyone with half a brain and a little experience playing knows what a safe velocity is. The only problem there is that there is no one to enforce it or make them leave if they don't chrono at <300, or in his case they have it at <280. It comes down to being a person of character and not endangering anybodies safety because you think it's cool to shoot at 350fps. Sadly, there are dicks who won't do this.

But that is the point. While everyone owning a paintball gun does or should know the simple truth is playing outlaw ball with strangers you can't really be surprised that people are going to do unsafe things.

Yeah, that's true. It's sad that people will intentionally and knowingly put someone at risk like that though. That's why I play at a legitimate field.

Those who think it's cool to shoot at a +300 FPS velocity have probably never been hit close or far range at those speeds and realize don't the difference that 20-30FPS can make.

Yep, it's a real field. I've been playing there for 5 years, and it's as good as any organized field I've seen. Most players at the field are experienced paintballers, and velocities are usually kept in check. For those morons who do shoot hot, they're dealt with by us who understand the rules and safety regulations of paintball.
