    Hello Mathew,

    first of all, paintball is not dangerous if you wear proper safety equipment and follow all the safety regulations of the field.

    Your friends are right unfortunately some players lost their lives because of paintball but we don't know whether they wear paintball safety equipment or not.

    I want to share some research data with you

    1. According to HUCP-US- Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project-United states

    they found a total of 20,300 visits of the Emergency department and you know 97% of the injured due to airsoft 3% of them were injured due to paintball.

    2. Also According to the Injury prevention report 

    they Found about 11980 cases from 1997 to 2001 and 95% were released to their home.

    So don't get confused just follow safety without safety every sport is dangerous.

    paintball is not the expensive game it depends on the player some payers want update mask guns clothes and other things while others get their work done with normal equipment, so it truly depends on your taste

    first, go for rental equipment when you discover your interest then buy your own equipment.

    Start off renting gear from the place where you're playing until you get a feel for it, and whether you enjoy it. Most places have very reasonable rental rates for gear. It only starts getting prohibitively expensive when you start buying your own guns and protective gear.
