My name is Mike Peverill. I'm here at Pev's Paintball Park in Aldie, Virginia. I've been playing paintball nearly 30 years. I've played professional paintball with numerous pro teams all over the world. This facility here was built from the ground up for paintball, kind of like a paintball Disney Land. Our website is Hopefully you can come out and visit us sometime. Paintball. It's all the same. You're still shooting a paintball gun, so it doesn't matter whether you're playing a tournament, a speedball style or whether you're playing rec ball style. Paintball wars are all going to be the same concept, which is you're shooting a paintball gun, and you're shooting a paintball at someone else. So what I tell everybody what's very to remember the rules are, it's safety. The No. 1 safety thing you've got to remember is to keep your goggles on at all times when you're on the playing field. Barrel covers. Remember your barrel covers. When you're eliminated or the game is over and you're walking off the field, lock your gun and then also put the barrel cover on the gun. The other thing to remember is cronographing the gun. The velocity of the guns, we have to cronograph for safety. And it means, three hundred feet per second is the max in our industry that safety will allow us to shoot a paintball gun. So, cronograph your guns. When you're at a field or even if you don't play at a field, if you're playing in your backyard, randomly cronograph your gun. Because it's very important. If you don't have a cronograph, go to your local paintball pro shop or field and say, ""Hey, would you cronograph my gun for me? I'd like to set it for 280, 290, but never more than 300 feet per second."" It's critical. Basically, the rules are it's when you shoot someone, they're out. They're eliminated. In most paintball games, it doesn't matter where you get hit. If you get hit on the body, or even if you get hit on the gun, on the equipment, you're considered eliminated. And you're eliminated for that gun. So, you know, respect the fact that you're eliminated and walk off the field, keeping your goggles on, put your barrel blocking device on. Keep it simple. The no. 1 rule, basic safety rules in paintball worldwide is goggles, barrel covers and respect your other paintball player. When you're shot, walk off the field, and play safe.
