Paintball guns are safe and fun to play with as long as they are used correctly. One important thing to remember is that if you are shooting too fast, paintballs can leave massive welts and bruises. If you are shooting too slow, paintballs won't break on your target. Either way, it pays to step up to the chronograph and properly chrono your gun and shoot at the right speed.
