No enforced mercy, no gear requirement. No age limit. The age limit is determined by the paintball field, and will field anyone with parental signature. This particular field, with this particular host could potentially be running 14 year olds on the field, no vest @ 430.
I'd like to add that I have no problem with a 400 FPS indoors, but ONLY if you have the space to do so, ex. Black Sheep, or Rhino. You had huge empty rooms, and massive amounts of outdoor play. Also, I'd much prefer playing with quality players at 400, because I know they're not going to light me up point blank. They're going to pull pistol in close range situations, etc.
Minors? running that hot .. in close quarters... as a field owner and game host, that is in one word.. Negligent. It would never ever happen at my facility, I'm not keen on seeing my livelihood wiped out by some soccer mom suing me because little timmy got his face shot up.
Waivers are not worth the paper they are written on.. I know a personal injury Lawyer.. who said "I've never seen a waiver that I could not get around in court"
The risk is far far different from the perspective of the player vs the venue owner or game host. any one person can choose to risk it.. take that risk and multiply it by the number of players on the field ... and add several zeros.. now you get an idea of the risk to the game host or venue owner.
