    This standard practice outlines procedures for conducting a form of low impact paintball games through the establishment of specific game rules and equipment requirements aimed at reducing the discomfort sometimes experienced by players. Like any other physical activity, paintball can cause injury, especially when players do not follow safety instructions. This practice establishes minimum safety requirements for the operation of Low Impact Paintball Playing Fields and covers basic paintball safety rules, field orientation and safety briefing, barrel blocking device regulation, goggles, chronographing procedures, required signs, emergency requirements, adequate staffing during games, fill station, and filling of paintball air systems and cylinders. It also covers adequate spectator provisions and staging area, protective barriers, game area requirements, low impact paintball markers, game rule restrictions, velocity restrictions, and paintball high pressure propellant gas storage vessel requirements.
