We often hear the complaints that so-and-so is shooting hot during a paintball game. Shooting hot, for those not in the know, is when a player’s paintball marker is shooting above the field maximum speed, usually 275 to 300 feet per second.
It might well be true that an opponent making the complaint was hit by one or more paintballs that were moving faster than the field limit. But that does not necessarily mean that the player who fired the paintballs is shooting hot. Let me explain.
