I got into gellball because its cheap and easy for the kids to play. If I go to paintball it costs $200 with 3 kids. Gell ball costs $10 for an afternoon of fun once you have the toys, my total start up was less that $500 and has been used heaps of times.
I would happily paint my blasters pink. The people causing issues aren’t going to hand them in anyway.
There are better ways to make the sport safer and eliminate any confusion without banning them because of idiots.
