Hi. My name is Robert Stewart. I’m with Hill13.com.
Before we talk about any of the fun stuff: the guns, the paint, the strategy, and the
game play; we’re going to talk about the first and foremost important element in paintball.
And that is the mask. Any reputable field you go to, you’re going to be required to
wear a mask that has full facial protection, which means the front of your face and your
ears. It must be ASTM certified, which is the American Society of Testing and Materials.
That is so you can be safe and sure that if you’re struck by a paintball traveling at
300 feet per second, the goggles don’t break and injure your eye. If you don’t wear proper
safety gear playing paintball, it’s a little bit like crossing a crowded freeway with your
eyes closed. It’s not really a question of if you’ll get hurt, but when you’ll get hurt.
