Field Netting?

Is that paintball netting any good for airsoft?
I'd rather not build a 300' wood wall So trying to find an easier option,

Any thoughts on this?

Thank You

It work but it's not effective at 100%. At close range, some BB can manage to go through.

I witnessed a guy almost getting an eye shot out (the bb hit his lower cheek) about 4 years ago in Niagara, because somebody thought it would be funny to shoot at his buddy in the "safe zone" who was behind a safety net. So yeah...

Not sure if bbs would go through at a distance though.

Up close you cant be sure it wont go through. From a distance your fine tho. In the cold its not good for airsoft or paintball since it becomes rather brittle.

There's a small indoor field over here that doubled the paintball netting with some sort of thick wool-like fabric. BB's don't go through even at point blank. Sorry, but I don't know the exact fabric used.

I believe that is known as miller's felt. It will definitely stop a BB. As will a well reinforced tarp.

Ask what they used at black cobra field in gibbons, he also built a full wood wall using unfinished 24' planks but for the rest of the field he found a white mesh netting, 500fps full auto and 700fps bolt could not get through or tear it up, absorbed it all.
