I used to run the college paintball team. I once got hit in the temple by a hot gun (shot by the site operator!). It knocked me over and d_mn near concussed me. Luckily for his head and my clean rap sheet, I was grabbed before I could wrap my CO2 cylinder round his.

ZDP-189 I feel your pain. I can recall going to the chrono station with everyone else and logging in at 250FPS or less. Then little Timmy with his Dark Matter -3000 ( which by the way his mommy bought for him) goes out onto the field and with the flick of a hex wrench is zippin' those puppies out at well over 300 FPS! If you have a slingshot it's going to be pretty hard to increase your FPS. Does anyone on our forum have a chrono that can give us some accurate velocity measurements with .68 caliber paintballs?
Yeah, if you ever see someone with a pentel mark on the dial of his gun, refuse to play. That's where he's determined that it will be safely under the mark and once he's on the hex key comes out and he'll flick it up a quarter turn. Ironically, hot balls shoot flatter but then tumble off into wild arcs beyond around 20 yards. I used to prefer sites that would pat down people for hex keys.

I used to be very competitive till my testosterone and adrenalin got to a level where I was an unpleasant chap to be around before, during and after the weekend. Then I chucked it in, gave away my guns and took up skydiving, a much more relaxing and unstressful sport by comparison.
