So same power, but shorter distance=more damage=more dangerous. That's why most of the indoor games have limited the FPS to a much lower one.
Really? I'm not sure how you figure that one. If you come around a wall at 2-3 feet from me at a game with "no mercy", I'm going to engage you, whether I have a rifle firing 400 or a pistol firing 400. At that point, what's the difference.
If field rules state Max FPS to be 400, what difference is a pistol from an smg from a rifle, with the exception of more accuracy at range?
