I have 4-year old scars from playing in my back woods. It's not cool when a paintball tears your shirt and draws blood. This happened on my arm and my chest. Non-chronoed markers are bad news but masks cannot be broken by the force of a standard paintball gun being shot at the outside of a mask. Paintball masks are designed like fire-fighter masks. They are tested to see how much force it take to shatter them, then that level of force is cut in half and labeled the safe limit. Paintball masks are safe to about 600 psi. If you take your mask off and shoot it from the inside, you should throw it away because shooting the inside of he lens compromises the integrity of the mask. 
Paintball guns are capable permanent damage to eyes and face and have done this many times. There has never been a case of faulty gear (masks) causing damage. Every case was because a person wasn't wearing gear properly or not wearing any at all. They can kill a person but they never have. CO2 tanks have killed a few people though. I did a college paper on paintball safety. A +Big smile  

Potato guns are not cool. They are extremely painful. Nerf cannons are bad enough.

Whatever the upper limit of paintball mask structural integrity is, paintballs should never be fired at other people in excess of 300 fps.  It is a bad idea to play anyplace where the markers are not chronographed to a safe speed.

Any close range hit on the lens is reason to replace the lens.

You really shouldn't be playing paintball if welts bother you.

If you come to a walkon here and bring armor you will be lit up beyond belief before a game has even started. It's like a peanut mask. Yeah it has benefits but if you're a regular player then you just cant get away with it.
