paintball is dangoreous when some asshole freezes the paint or turns up the fps after the gun got rated. I have seen someone get hit in the arm and make them bleed. it created cuts wherever the paint hit, but this was bare skin, close range, and a higher than legal velocity.

Be very careful. Dumbass comments like that start flamewars.

You're on the brink of one now.

Paintballs don't really freeze, the shell gets brittle but the fill never gets solid.

Pavel - Most normal hits break the skin anyways. Those of us who have played for 6+ years have had plenty of bad hits, bruises, cuts, welts, and bleeders. Worst place to get pelted is the Fingers, I don't say balls because only dumbasses leave their crotch open to a clear shot.
