I think this is a bad idea, no offense
1.It would be a turn off to people who want to play paintball because its just a huge hassel to deal with imo
2.you dont need to take a course with a real firearm so why should you have to take a course with paintball?

Well seeing how firearms are potentially more dangerous and easier to carry [handguns], paintball markers would be better off at it is now.

You cant destroy our image anymore than it is now.

no, ive done research into it, and there are still more strict regulations regarding firearms: minimum waiting periods, registering serial numbers, etc.

EDIT Duh the ID number must be used in the transaction!! Unless the system went so far as to keep track of how many markers people own.
i didnt think of that either until someone mentioned it.

as for the system, it would only keep track of your record, basically a go or no-go situation. but the tracking of the numbers of markers each person owns would work, until the marker got parted out or broken...

since this is purely hypothetical and im only doing this for a grade, i think i'll dismiss second-hand ownerships (which is why i never plan on mentioning pawn shops).

feel free to point out the good parts about it too.

If you wanted you could go as far as a hybrid gun/auto system. Title, ID numbers for the markers & so on.

EX= kingman TL+ made in 2000

KMI (kingman international)
00 year
serial number 1234

number on marker would be = KMI001234

Oh ya, Mags have serial numbers on the valve & that part they go into & I believe numbers matching go for more money than none matching.... << kinda off the wall.

I'm glad someone understands what I'm trying to get to! firearms are more dangerous than paintball guns(I'm not saying pb guns arent dangerous) and you dont need to take any coarse

they do this because firearms are lethal.

this wouldnt stop anything. with a firearm, you can trace the bullet back to the gun. you cant do this with a paintball marker due to the type of projectile and operation. what exactly are you trying to stop?

What about a simple test over the net that would be put onto your file stating you understand the basic rules. Now if you go out & do something stupid & get caught the cops pull your name up & it says you have a database number & you know the basic stuff its your butt.

Like I heard on the radio this morning on the way to work some kids shot a cop car. Beyond freaking stupid period. They went to jail. Say they hard the cards, & 6 months down the road they went to walmart to get a new marker, gave walmart their card number, BOOM red flag. they walk out pissed off......


Well, the system could go either uphill & do tons of good or so far down the poop shoot it aint funny & possibly harm the sport. Theres so many loop holes in just what you laid out DFS it aint funny.
