    Is paintball use legal in my backyard in Georgia (Harris County) and is there an age minimum for paintball use in GA?

    We've played in the yard....of course that is 5 acres......I'd just go for it

    As for age....you the parent? I'd do what ever I felt comfortable with.

    No minimum age. most fields require the child to be 10-11 for insurance purposes, but there is not law.

    Have someone there that knows what they're doing. High pressured canisters and paintballs firing faster than 300fps will cause harm.
    the most important thing- WEAR A FULL MASK/GOGGLES MADE FOR PAINTBALL. you can pick them up at walmart for cheap. There is a good chance someone will loose and eye, have a nasty scar on there face, or something else fun happen.

    I used to be on WCM, and I have played with Dead by Dawn , although I'm not a member. I haven't played in a couple years though. Was thinking about getting back into it.
