Eye Protection

Post by Howie on 1st August 2011, 9:58 am

EYE PROTECTION
Goggles that form a full tight seal around your eyes are required. All lenses must be rated at ANSI Z87.1-2003 (also known as Z87.1+). Regular shop goggles, shooting glasses, or sunglasses do not offer adequate protection from shots from the sides, rear, or ricochets and are not be allowed!

FULL FACE PROTECTION
Full face masks will required for all players 14 and under unless approved by a parent or guardian. BBs impacting the face can break or chip teeth, and are easily stopped by a full face mask. Full face protection is recommended at any indoor events/games (CQB, MOUT) due to the close proximity of engagements.

NEOPRENE HALF FACE MASK
Sometimes players will used these during the course of play along with Their Eye Protection.

Figured I'd ask here instead of starting a new thread. Got some old paintball goggles/mask and curious if they're acceptable. Seen a lot of the full mask resemble paintball mask but wondering about goggles themselves. Trying save myself some money for the mean time lol.

Most paintball goggles are ansi z87.1+ if not all but its not stamped. I took multiple guns up to it at 350 400 450 and 500 fps not even a scratch from any but had it all full auto. Mines was the 400 the rest were friends.

Allout appreciate the response. Not sure if they're stamped being I won't have them here until the 18th when the woman moves back down here. And I also agree with you on not taking chances with the eyes.

Archer, I'm agree with Allout not one to take chances with my eyes. I already have bad eyesight as it is! But if I went blind due to a bb I'd be mad about not being able to go to beach and see women in bikinis haha
