Is Paintball Safe?

YES, WITH SOME QUALIFICATIONS. ( DAVID MUHLESTEIN, ABOUT.COM GUIDE)    PAINTBALL IS VERY SAFE AS LONG AS YOU FOLLOW THE RULES AND USE COMMON SENSE. ANY SEVERE INJURIES COME FROM PEOPLE SIMPLY NOT FOLLOWING RULES – USUALLY REMOVING THEIR MASK WHEN THEY SHOULDN’T. THERE ARE, OF COURSE, MINOR INJURIES SUCH AS STRAINS AND SPRAINS THAT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH ALL ACTION SPORTS. AS A WHOLE, PAINTBALL IS VERY SAFE, DOES NOT LEAD TO MAJOR INJURIES.   IN FACT, BASED ON SEVERE SPORT-RELATED INJURIES THAT LEAD TO EMERGENCY ROOM VISITS, PAINTBALL IS SAFER THAN BOWLING.
