Way to be looking out for the little guys. I love seeing kids getting into the sport and I feel it's our job as the "old guys" of the sport to make sure they're being taken care of. More and more am I defining my day of play by whether or not the kids at the field are having fun.

I agree and this something I've said before and feel strongly about. I hate it when parents treat the paintball field like a daycare.

As long as you're mature and handle yourself properly, no. But to be frank there are quite a few adults I've met at the field who are not mature and do not handle themselves properly.

Agreed. The field staff's first and most important job is always safety. If a gun doesn't work right then the customer might leave unhappy. If a mask doesn't work right then the customer might leave without an eye. Priorities need to be in order.
