i'm glad this is being addressed. every year more airsofters join in the winter and go to their first pb field outdoor games in the spring and run the risk of getting everyone fucked by the owners by running ballistic goggles. i saw a case of this at the last game even and it disgusted me pretty bad. safety rules are not for interpretation, especially at places where injuries are factored into insurance.

i guess not many people are aware of the seriousness of that particular rule at paintball fields but tactical goggles are not designed with the same intentions as paintball goggles (dust/blast protection vs. protection from projectile of a given size from most angles), and shouldn't be treated as interchangeable anywhere.

you might be comfortable at potentially increasing risk on your eyes but that doesnt mean your host cares for the increase in liability. don't shit where you eat, it's common sense.
