The Danger of Playing Paintball Because people are shooting hard projectiles at you from a gun. Aside from the damage that can come from that, you can also run into things, strain muscles and fall.

It is not. Paintball is not dangerous. Statistically, it is one of the safest sports out there.

Out of extreme sports (Snowboarding, Skateboarding, inline skating ect...) paintball is the safest sport. Statistically tennis is more dangerous than paintball. Bowling is more dangerous than paintball to.
