I didn't say it bothered me. I tried really carefully to not interject any opinion on gun control. He was complaing the thread kept going off track. I just thought it was obvious why. OK rephrase it like this, "I don't own or shoot guns."

I`ve been thinking on that one. Im working on a video now called `For Parents, your first visit.` Its going to cover that.
Kids get bruises. Unless you wrap them in bubble wrap ( or they spend all day in front of the xbox), they were get hurt. When i rode skate boards i used to come home missing several layers of skin on my knees, usually with blood still pouring out. I can happily say i have had less injuries with paintball than on my bike or skate boards. Heck, ive even seen a broken ankle and a broken toe when i raced rc cars lol.

Okay, I turned the videos into an Online Guide For Parents About Paintball. From a parent for parents.

A Parents Guide to Paintball

Help me out here people. I need some "expert" feedback.

Nicely done! The only thing I noticed (I have not yet had time go through ALL of it, I have to chase my own kids around) is the term "FIRE" in the Parent Paintball Dictionary.Paintball guns/markers are not fire-arms - and there is no combustion involved in propelling the ball (except for maybe two markers out there), so they do not "fire" anything; they shoot (like a bow).

Maybe mention that "Lighting up" or "Overshooting" is frowned upon.

Honestly - small things buried in a very nice body of work.

Great feedback. This is exactly what I was looking for. I will make those changes today.

The first video has been updated based on the feedback from this thread.

I am now working on another vlog...going to be hard...for us that live in Canada, UK, Australia and Europe that play paintball in a culture where guns are considered bad. It really does affect the sport of paintball.

Great video I liked how you sort put things into perspective for everyone. In my opinion you are defe gonna get everything, some are gonna like it some are not and it's just personal preference as to what works better for kids. I myself am not a father but I would defe let me child play paintball. This game promotes fun, health and team work...I mean why not?
