still doesnt answer the question of why different limits for pistols, regardless of them being used indoor or outdoor.
whether its a pistol, a bolt action, or an AEG, anything shooting the same weight of BB at the same muzzle velocity will have the same energy.
so why the different FPS limits on pistols?

Then chrony with the heaviest weight BB you can get! Since they only seem to be concerned about FPS.

You'd have to see the area that this rule was instated for...

it is WAY To close to be using 390 FPS AEG's :P This thread was put up to review our FPS rules and that's what we're intending on doing!

Really?

I never thought the MAA's rules for FPS were that bad.


Yes, you can quote me on the fact I actually thought the MAA did something right LOL

A friend of mine has a WA ProKiller Mk.II F4 with the 4" slide and compensator. We added a silencer, and replaced the inner barrel with one that's 8" long, and it shoots 400+fps. FULL AUTO.

I got hit with it in the kidney, and it felt like I was pelted with a baseball.

I really hate to say this,but alittle hotter fps helps with people that don't call there hits I know it's not the right way to look at it ,but....
I see some hotter fps limits and I think you would really have to see the area there being used in to make any kind of judgment,but thats just me. Ower games have been I think pretty standard.
400 fps Full auto(outdoors)
350 fps indoors
470 fps Semi (I might be alittle of on this one)
I do think that I'v seen a bit of a trend with hotter pistols showing up at games !
Have to remember that nothings written in stone for any given area

Aim for the teeth, ears, fingers and if they're male shoot their balls. Nothing like a stream of white going to the groin. Watch out with the m1a1... a burst with it is a stream.... I had some one stand up into the stream once and i was nolonger shooting him in the chest if you know what i mean.

Our team aproach to "Non callers" is simple. Like in real gunfights, some people are harder to drop. Some are just using drugs to stay up. So a larger amount of bullets (BBs) are required to drop that tango. We don't do a fuss about it, we just keep shooting untill that ennemy is "dead". If it become unsafe, we juste go see the guy and have him wise up or removed from play.


No bitching, no wining. Just fun. And no need to hurt the person.
