How often should you be changing out your goggles lenses, and what signs of wear on the lenses should you look for? – There isn’t really a set answer. A good rule though is if you EVER see cracking on a lens change it right away. Another spot to keep watch for is the foam that keep the lens of a thermal lens glues together.

Can you get concussions from paintball if so how bad would they be and how would you treat them? – I don’t think it’s very likely, but it’s possible. The weight of a paintball is only 3grams, so the mass is so little that is unlikely.

I used to play when I was in HS in the late 90’s & early 2000’s & I’ve been considering getting back into it. My question is what’s up with the chin straps on the masks these days? I don’t remember seeing them years ago when I was playing. – It all started with an incident in 2016 where Trevor Resar got shot just under the eye.
