I was paintballing with my friends a few months ago out in somebodys woods. we just finished our second round of playing and it was a humid day so we decided to pack it in for awhile and get some lunch back at one of the guys houses. i took of my mask to clean. while i was doing that one of the kids was unscrewing his co2, the co2 started to leak out fast and it scared the kid and head pionted his gun up as he jumped back. well the preasure was in the gun went crazy and it shot off. i was looking over at the kid wondering what to with my mask in my hand when it shot of and i took a ball a centimeter to the inside of my eye . i went to thte hospital and was on bedrest, eye drops and steriods for two weeks plus. the kid that hit me was more scared than i was and he never wnted to paintball agian and it was worse because people were making fun of him saying he tryed to kill me, but i cleared that up . it was his first time and that would have really scared me too even though he knew i was okay. i saw his mom at a carnival last weekend see said she took him to challenge park a few days ago and he played alot. i was really happy for him that he got over his fear

It's good to hear you are ok and that he conquered his fear. Sounds like a very lucky accident. Although, I do think you shoul have been helping him with it since he was new. But, none of that matters now and everything is ok.

SAFTY FIRST! Next time you guys are playing make sure to use barel plugs and dont take your masks off until you have barel plugs in or tanks off. Good to here that you are ok.

Two words, Barrel Condems. I never heard that  if you take out the co2 and it starts leaking  that it shoots???nvr heard of that, but truly be safe next time, you were lucky the paintball didnt screw up you eye. See this is why parents dont allow kids to play. I advised you to play at the field, more safe.

Yes, I've seen guns shoot while people were unscrewing the tank. I don't know how or why, but I believe the one I saw was a brass eagle. Barrel plugs aren't really safe, barrel condoms are. The gun that shot off sent the brass eagle plug of death into the aluminum sheeting around the pavilion and dented it real nice. A field I go to on occasion doesn't use plugs- they tell you to keep the gun pointed down and fingers off the trigger (safety on or no). They have gun racks that hold the guns at an angle downward.

I am glad the field I play at has strict rules. I can only assume it is this way cuase the ownder doesn't want to get sued. Barrel plugs have no way of staying in if the gun is electric. Its to esay to fire off a burst sending it flying.

the only time ive been hit in the face w/o a mask was when some a-hole decided it would be cool to shoot at me while i was walking home( we were playin outlaw ball) I had my mask off and i heard someone yell out my name then as soon as i turned around WHAM!! directly in between my eyebrows, paint and casings flew in my eyes and strings of profanity flew out of my mouth, there wasnt any serious damage though and he felt kinda bad about it so he let me shoot him like 9 times in the rump
