just on a side note, wouldnt a kid who is younger have an easier time with getting hit, because of all the extra cartelidge in their body making a better cushion?

huh? no...

The only cartilage that is present only in kids is some in the hand and foot, otherwise at birth the rest of the skeleton(aside from the head) has hardened, however it is hylain cartilage which is quite bendable and absorbs shock quite well(in adults it is present in the knee and spine to absorb shock). However, in an adult, there is so much dense irregular connective tissue in the hands(the muscles of the fingers are located in the forearm) that most shock is absorbed that way. Between a 6 year old body and an adult body's ability to absorb the shock of a paintball there is little physical difference. The only difference would be mental, in which an adult may be able to take more than a kid, however, many adults can't take it, while I've seen 7 year olds with absolutely no fear.

Good to hear you're ingraining the proper safety guidelines early. I hate going to the field and having idiots tell me I'm too proper about safety... in the end, it'll be their eye that the hospital's trying to fix, not mine!
No that back yard battle thing...yes Red you are the man!

And no she won't be playing against Mom's will...that's something you don't hear everyday.

Gee, I just dicussed it with my wife who is a ped's intensive care unit RN and she agrees with me. But I guess I should take it from a STUDENT who is studying that I have NO idea what I'm talking about. I guess being a father of 3 doesn't count either. Do you have any kids?

Lol! OK, now I have a question for both Sandman and Schecter. This isn't to start a fight, I'm just curious on both of your takes on it, so don't take it as a reason to.

If a child and an adult human (lets say male in both cases) have the same structure in respective sizes, then wouldn't the hit hurt the child more? Even though they are RESPECTIVELY the same via scale, the child would have less "padding," per se with my train of thought, as the "padding" would be smaller and not as thick as that of the adult.

Now the question I have is, would that train of thought be right? No debating... just what you think of this post.


(Yeah, I'm curious, I just don't want another spat...)
