"Specially dangerous" for a rifle paintball gun would be right around 330 fps based on the information I found. Like it was mentioned earlier the pistols is where it becomes a problem. because of the lower force requirement to be listed as "specially dangerous" it comes in around the area of 180 fps.
Which makes no sense as both pistol and rifle paintball marker use the same propellant type, fire the same projectile type and internally are no different. Tib/TPX = Automag, T68 Pistol = Any Spyder marker.
I think our Lawmakers need to realise that unlike with real firearms, there is no distinction between "pistol type" and "rifle type" markers when it comes to paintball. Only difference is ammo capacity and size.
