Is it legal to blow paint out of your barrel in game?

Imagine your gun breaks or you blow a burst disk. Can you use your barrel and blow paintballs out of it in game? And if so can you do it in tournament?

Considering you would have to raise your mask, no. And i believe its in both psp/nppl tournament rules books that a paintball must be expelled from a marker to cause a valid elimination. No more running down field throwing paintballs.

Technically, it never says anything about it directly, but you most likely can't. Since it defines what a paintball gun is most likely your mouth doesn't fit that description and blowing paintballs out is most likely illegal.

However, you can't leave any of your equipment behind.

The rules concerning equipment basically break down like this:
You are required to keep your gun and the rest of your equipment with you, since all of your stuff is counted as "you" and if it gets shot you're out. The only time you can shed a piece of your equipment is a pod which must touch the ground before it is considered out of play.
Also, I believe there is a max length you are allowed to be away from your equipment, if you go beyond that you're considered out.

Now that I have a computer here is the actual rule from PSP.
