We are avid paintball players from around the globe. Your organization has good intentions but does not know all the facts concerning paintball.
Let us say this clearly. PAINTBALL IS NOT FOR SELF-DEFENSE. It is a sport. With a following of over 6 million players worldwide, it promotes teamwork, physical endurance and safety. While sometimesit is used by the military and law enforcement for training, it is in NO WAY for self defense. Paintball is as much a sport as basketball or football...but those are not listed on your website! Confusing your members and saying that paintball markers and equipment can be used in self-defense is like saying that throwing a basketball at an attacker will effectively disable them.
That is just not true.
Please remove all links related to paintball on your site. We understand if websites sell paintball products as well as other equipment...that\'s fine. We just don\'t want to see the word \"paintball\" ANYWHERE on your site. Never has paintball been intended to be a form of self-defense, due to the fact that it is a SPORT and is meant to be enjoyed.
Thank you for your time and appreciation. We have no intention of putting down your organization, because it\'s motives are good...but if you associate paintball with it expect to hear from us and others as well in the future. But either way, expect to get a lot of emails like this in the coming days and weeks due to your lack of knowledge about our sport.
