Paintball is one of the most vigorous sports compared to the real actual thing of being a cop or in the military. A lot of kids don't know why it's important to stay focused when shooting a paintball gun or a real gun. Some of the fundamentals of paintball are the same as the fundamentals of shooting a real gun. A lot of parents don't like that their kids mess around with real guns or are exposed to them at young ages for hunting and target practice. Well to unravel some of the confusion those parents have about guns and children should focus more on the right practices of shooting a weapon and safety. I believe the best way to do this is paintball, with all the replicas they have out and the shooting velocities, its great practice for shooting and safety all in one. For one all the safety equipment and handling of the guns is all the same as if you were using a real gun but not a lot of people realize how much of a training tool paintball can be for young kids and young adults. As we further into the development of weapons and paintball guns how much more can we realize that they are becoming more and more similar as the years pass. Law enforcement and Military use paintball guns for training purposes and look at how much better they all get when it really counts and their safety measures they take when even using these non-lethal weapons that only cause little scratches and possibly a little bruise depending on the fps the guns velocity controller is set on. But this is just something to think about instead of worrying about young kids handling bigger guns and train them first with a non-lethal weapon and them move them up slowly to real ones.
