People wonder why paintball participation has dried up...

I personally think it's because of twib BS like this making it onto rec fields.

Players like this make me want to quit. Absolutely ridiculous, irresponsible hosing. If I were in that building at 2:22 I'd be asking myself "why did I pay money to come here?"

Here's hoping that mag fed, pump and pistols save paintball's soul, because if this becomes the mainstream I'm out.

zero restraint... simply uncool. how do you stop it from happening, consistently? careless players, refs, and field owners will kill their fields, but the game will live on, thanks to the people who do care, and ensure the game remains playable and enjoyable by more than just hardcore regulars.

$100 a case paint cuts it down. Like it or not fields that use cost to help control volume have something going for them
