I'm not going to say that it is completely stupid or that it wouldn't work, it's just not practical. What about people buying them as gifts, they wouldn't own it so why would they need to go through a class to buy it. Plus putting some immature kid through a paintball safety class wouldn't stop him from putting a screwdriver down the barrel, unless you showed them that news article about the kids that actually did just so.

Three years is too long without paintball.
