OPERATING YOUR  PAINTBALL MARKER

Want to know the lingo?

We don't call them guns.

They are "markers".

You don't fire ammunition, you shoot "paint".

 

A paintball marker is safe to use when used properly.

It does not kick-back when you pull the trigger to shoot a paintball.

 

When you are not on the playing field you should have your gun safety on, your fingers away from the trigger and most important; your barrel plug inserted into your marker barrel as displayed below.

What purpose does the barrel plug serve?


Multiple purposes:

  1. It indicates to other players you are no longer a target.
     

  2. Should you forget to place your safety in an "on" position and accidentally pull the trigger, you won't injure anyone nearby.
