3) Once the balls are in the air you cannot stop them
4) they keep running, so I keep shooting
I wonder how many players have been injured from this type of play?
Why is this acceptable behavior in paintball?
Because we slowly let it be. I hate people like this. Attitude is "Oh its part of the game, suck it up."
No. It's not part of the game. You're making something that shouldn't be part of the game the norm, thus giving it a bad name. People wonder why paintball has been shrinking..its because of dudes like this.
