The environmental concerns are probably glycol related. Pballs are filled with a mix of glycol, glycerine, and oil which is not particularly toxic, but large amounts can damage crops. I don't know what the decomposition rate of paintball paint is, but if FR contaminates their area at a rate higher than the decomposition rate than they could be affecting their neighbors crop growing abilities. Watch a round of speedball. I wouldn't be surprised if half a barrel of paint is dumped in a game day.

Pballers can be pretty obnoxious when they're hyped up after a game. Think about why you left pball for airsoft.

I'd be sad to see FR go, but you do have to think about all of the effects that it's presence causes.
