I think the safety conscious should be shifting to hard padding where ever practical. A motorcycle chest protector does not promote bounces but will eliminate pain of getting shot.

that would end a ton of this controversy.

I've been wearing a mascot suit of Bowser from Mario bros. since the beginning of the season it's got 4 inches of padding up the front, however it does slow me down quite a bit. Bounces galore for me. lol

Yeh that sounded circular. Let me try to rephrase. I believe morality is objective. I am not certain, on many issues, where the objective line is and welcome disagreement and discussion. That being said without touching on religion or having a very very long philosophical discussion my argument here is going to sound like an argument of definition between objective and subjective. Its not intended to be but the length of discussion we would need to further this is beyond what is practical here.

I wear a t-shirt and camo pants, guys wanna pad I just double tap or triple tap if need be until I get a break. Last game I played I snuck up behind one of my friends gave him one in the back "Vest" he turned around and said "I'm not sure if it broke" In which I replied "I can shot you again till one breaks" he replied "That wont be necessary" and he walked off and we both were laughing.

That nelspot never needs lube, shoots 2,000 ball per second, never needs reloaded, doesn't require an air source and when the paintball hits somebody the result is the same as if Chuck Norris round house kicked them.
He nick named the gun Reggie.

That's exactly the thing. People wearing fore-arm pads, padded jerseys, super loose clothing, etc. are NOT wearing them for safety, regardless of what they tell you. If they were, they would be wearing hard outer shelled pads.

All those words, and I dont think you said anything.

I got a solution for everyone. Shoot them in the face, their mask isn't padded, and you can't wipe it off easily either.

I'm sold on the hard chest protector, I'll price one out. I bet they keep you cooler than bounce vests too.

@ Lohman446 I can see I won't be able to persuade you to accept my version of reality so I'll let it rest for now, though I think you'll come around if you ponder it a bit.
