BULLDOG PAINTBALL PARK

                                                                        Field Rules

 

KEEP YOUR GOGGLES ON!

All players are required to have “masks on” when walking to and from the fields from the staging area. Industrial safety glasses or ski goggles or anything other than paintball mask will not be allowed on the fields

YOUR MARKER IS ALWAYS LOADED!

Paintball markers are not toys. While paintball can be fun and enjoyable, always remember that your marker is designed to shoot a round ball at around 300 feet per second. Even after removing the hopper and air supply from a marker it is possible and likely that there is still a ball in the chamber and pressurized air left in the internal parts of the marker. NEVER point your marker at a target you do not wish to shoot.

PLUG IT

Occasionally accidents happen – people trip, drop their marker or their hand slips accidentally causing a marker to fire. As of this, you should ALWAYS keep a barrel plug or sock on your marker until you are ready to use it.

All players are required to keep their plug or socks on until they arrive at the field they are playing on and the game is about to begin.

KEEP IT CHRONOED

We limit all players to a maximum of 285 FPS and cap the number of balls which can be fired at a time by limiting markers to semi-automatic mode only with a maximum rate of fire of 12 balls per second. This helps to ensure that the safety equipment is able to withstand and protect the player during the games and helps eliminate “overshooting” another player. We check our rental equipment and walk-on players before the equipment enters the field and sporadically throughout the day.

NO BLIND FIRING

It’s hard to ensure your playing safely if you can’t see where you gun is pointed. Paintball is a fast paced sport with several players moving about. You endanger others when you shoot your marker over a wall or around a bunker without looking down the sights (blind-firing). Doing such could result in you shooting someone at extremely close range causing a good bit of pain or worse. When you can’t see where your marker is pointed, you don’t know if the shot is safe to take or not.

DON’T OVERSHOOT

Once the player is eliminated, they are out! There is NO need to mark the person multiple times, and excessive tagging ("bonus-balling") can cause injury. On our fields we generally use a three shot rule. Paintball is about having fun, and intentionally or not, causing someone excessive paint just doesn't create a fun environment.

DON’T USE “BAD” PAINT

We, we require all players to use paint purchased from our field to ensure that it is of high enough quality and fresh enough so as not to cause damage to equipment or other players.

KEEP YOUR WITS ABOUT YOU

Use of common sense will ensure that you and everyone else playing will have a safe and enjoyable time with paintball. Remember, we have staff on hand for a reason, if you are having trouble with anything, see something out of place or just have questions, bring them to our attention.
