Pointballs don't do that unless:

A. You're shooting point blank (only assholes do)
B. Balls are slushed
C. Chrono has been ****** with/not dialed in.

In other words this only happens if you play with idiots or assholes.

well.. we were playing a kinda of..one team attack, the other defend... we had a feild with 5 flags. we got to the last flag, and hte defending team..my team... could not respawn.

so we got into a tower, and someone gave us 2 fully auto tippy A5's.. so us 2 in the tower had 2 full auto a5s....EACH!

my buddy luke decided to take his shirt off, and try to capture the flag.... he looked like this... and it was a good 20 yard shot to the flag, and we cap at 300 FPS.

unfortuanly..we lost hte field due to the field and game and BLM...

" A paintball that travels at 280 FPS can cause small bruises, while a paintball that travels faster can cause significantly more damage including severe welts and broken skin."

posted first oen as anon on accident...

all im saying.. we we get as close to 300 as we can... peopel are going ot crank their guns up, and as the day goes on, your PSI in the tank can go up or down.... this was probably a dare/prank anyway.... so the normal rules of PB dont apply.

when we still had a field we would do a crono test after a game, and before starting hte next game.....not after every game, but just randomly.

Your Chrono is not going to jump higher than it is start of day. Your tank is at it's highest pressure when it's full. If you feel like it may spike like you're suggesting than playing at levels anywhere near 300 is just stupid its a good way to penetrate a mask.

You would get kicked off most legal courses for playing near 300 (assuming they somehow found out) That paintball is flying at ~204MPH

People aren't going to "crank their guns up" Irresponsible players are.

You don't play near vegas due you? Lost a field outside vegas due to BLM.

Edit: Near 300FPS you start blowing paint out the barrel too.

na.. glasgow, montana. ours was to "unrealistic for the wildlife" even thow we had to chase the deer out of the field when we were setting up for the days murder.

we just said 300.. becasue when we tryed 250, they would crank to 300 anyway.... and your right.. i have never cranked my guns... i just got a tippy a5, had a JT tactical **** ... i was to worried about getting it to function! i think its a bit higher than 300 to pen a mask.... and we were a group of around 200 people from a small montana town who all knew each other... so, their was less cranking and **** , becasue your shooting friends.

i dare you to sit a half full cold school co2 tank in the sun for half the day, and tell me the PSI has not risen. hell, it might blow a burst disk! if the gun does not have a good regulator (even if it does) its going to shoot faster.... however, the PSI drop of firing will negate this effect after a few shots.

never had a ball break that was not due to old paint (years old) or choping.

i can only post even 16 min because im still new....kinda

haha well yeah if you sit a half full tank in the sun its gonna gain pressure. I was thinking during shooting (5-10 minutes between rounds maybe).

My current gun is an Alpha Tactical Black (Tippmann). For being kind of "gimmicky" its actually a nice gun though it shoots more C02 than i'd like.

And nah you're probably not gonna break a mask but turn a corner up close past 300 due to pressure change than who knows. Then again I dont know anyone who shoots at the head close distance haha.

I've had balls break due to speed but that also depends on the gun/barrel and like you said paint quality.

Does it seriously keep you from posting that long? Whats required for a sooner post?
