Its the players responsibility to make sure everything is safe and that newbies know how to play safe. If theyre trying to kill paintball then something mustve happened. If its continuous and big then they will probably vote it out, if its just suddenly they will probably make a new rule.

yeah, a while back paintball was on tv over here. but is wasn't for praise. it was saying how dangerous it was, because some dickass parent let there kid run around in a paintball field, the kid got shot and died.
but it's good that in some places paintball is accepted as a safe sport

Bahaha always wear your helmet when paintballing kids! It says so in the safety tips!

I wear goggles when I play....but I've never seen anyone with a helmet...well..besides that Elite Headshield thing

paintball + media + positive image = oxymoron...cept till now. Very suprising.

Paintball is safer than golf and bowling and such. heehee

'Twas in my paper a little while ago too. http://www.islandpaintball.net/NewYorkTimes2004.html

I was actually there the day they were doing it, but the photographer was hanging in the back, and didn't get a pic of me, I don't think.

(Yes, I know 250 fps is slow)

I've never seen anyone get hurt while bowling but I rarely bowl so ya never know.

I've seen people trip while golfing but nothing big. I've only went golfing once so again, ya never know.
