Hey guys, just thought I would give you my input on this, take it for what it's worth.
Engagement and FPS limits are not meant to soley limit the pain. Pain is part of the sport, and you must have a certain level of tolerance if you wish to participate. Engagement and FPS limits are meant to ensure the safety of the players.
Remember that women, younger children (<17), and even some adults, are not quite as sturdy as others. My wife for example, took a hit to her pinky knuckle from an MP5 shooting at 365fps at a distance of 20 feet. (below our engagment limit). This shot caused ligament damage, and since then she has had her hand in a brace for the past 2 1/2 months, and most likely it will require surgery to correct, and it will definatly cause arthritis at an eartly age.
Just remember that pain should not be your only factor when determining safe engagement limits. Because last I checked, pain doesnt cause injuries, injuries cause pain.
Welcome to the MiA forum rules/guidelines. This is a reminder of the guidelines we have established for this forum, in order to keep it running smoothly. If you have a problem with any of these guidelines, then we must quite simply request you post elsewhere. Thanks.
1 - Please use specific thread topics. The topic of your thread should let the reader know what the thread is about. Mods have full authority to re-title threads, but we would rather you took care of this yourself.
2 - If you want to tell someone to do a search, you must also provide an answer to their question. If you cannot, then do not post on the topic. Brief responses only saying to do a search will be deleted on sight.
3 - Any racist/sexist/abusive language will be deleted by mods or cleverly edited to make you seem silly. So please avoid it.
4 - Please use the 'Modify' button to edit your posts instead of creating a new post directly after the old one. Any attepmts to raise postcount by consecutive multiposts will result in a banning.
5 - The mods have the ability to either delete a post or thread immediately, or lock it and give 24 hour notice prior to deletion. It is up to the mod how they want to handle this.
6 - Please use proper grammar and punctuation. Not only will you get your message across much clearer, but other forum members might actually be able to reply to your post instead of trying to decipher your enigmatic nonsense.
Any complaints about any mods or anything else should be filed directly to me, in private, not in the forums.
Any questions on this, ask me.
Also just for a note I know reviving dead threads is not on the list, but it really is an unwritten rule, which is enforced please check the dates on the threads:)
