Default Chrono question

I am new to the sport of paintball and have a question. I have played twice at Skirmish in the last two months. With all the emphasis on safety, why is there never anyone checking that peoples markers are shooting at 280 or below?
People were there with guns way over 300 and nobody seemed to care. There was no staff at the chrono station both times I went to Skirmish and guns were not checked ever during the day. Do most fields just leave it up to the good will of the palyers?

Most of the time, unless it's a tournament or another big game, yes, it's usually honor system.

At my home field, the owner usually has teh walk-on ref chrono every once and a while. one day me and three other people thati know went and we were the only ones there. we went without a ref, and we used the honor system.

WELCOME EROCK!!

the problem with chronoing on the honorsystem is that in my experience there are alot of paintball players that don't have much honor. they are there to "shoot people up". i had one friend we went with once that purposly cranked his so it would hurt more. i don't play with him anymore, but anyone can walk on

Thanks for the replies. The amount of people that are there with the "I am here to shoot people up" mentality is why I was suprised that they don't enforce the limits for peoples guns. A hot gun smay sting more and leave a bigger bruise but can it crack the lense of my goggles?

Most definetly, high gun can crack a lens, and it will if you get gogged, and it's high enough. You should inform the owner of your field, and notify him to enforce the under 300 limit.

Thats why on the gun's themselves they tell you not to go above 300. That if you do, it is dangerous and could result in perminate or serious injury.

At our field (and being a head reff myself) we very strongly enforce the 250 limit our field has. If we catch a player intentionally over the FPS that we have chronoed him at before, he will be asked to leave the field and sit for a number of games, or he will be done for the day. At our field, if the players don't listen or if they argue with the reffs, the above punishment is also enforced.

Our field has a low tollerance for bad attitudes and pissy players.

I would say, next time you go, and you feel what you think is above the 280 mark, tell the owner or the manager of the field at that time that there are players above the listed FPS and that he should enforce the chronoing at 280 rule. Also remind him of the reprocussions of not enforcing the rule and the lawsuit that could be placed from faulty management/supervision.
