What do y'all think of shields on a rec ball field?

Played today and had a dude walking around with a roughly 4'x7' shield he'd made from PVC tubing and netting.

If everyone is ok with him using said shield then I don't see a problem with it. Makes for a fun change in pace for your regular paintball games. Plus, it's not like the guy can move around quick with it and someone like me will gladly obscure his vision any day.

"If a ball breaks on you or your equipment, you are out." Seems like a big ole ball magnet to me.

Scenario game where it is explicitly allowed then yeah sure. Otherwise I'm walking on to the field expecting to play by traditional rules.

Scenario games where it's stated beforehand that it's allowed, most definitely.

For regular open play, I'd be more likely to accept it if he brought TWO of his contraptions. So that each team can have one.

Yep, like stated before in a scenario game, totally cool with it. Eliminate the shield bearer would seem like a fun scenario to run.

If the rules allow it say like some scenario games do then that fine. Its a known or atleast printed rule .

If recball
If everyone agreed to let him then its good.
If the field rules allow it then its good.
If the field rules are any piece of equipment that you bring on gets shot your out... then its a easy target.

Do I like the idea no. Also don't like people running around a paintball field with foam swords either thinking they are really playing.

You're telling me 30 dudes slowly shambling their way across a field in a perfect Roman shield phalanx before unleashing with nerf swords wouldn't be the funniest damn thing ever at a scenario game?
