Kid Friendly .50 Caliber Paintball Guns
Less Weight and Less Sting!
Of Course we do have the 68 caliber if you prefer!
Our customers have been getting younger and younger. But up until now, some of the little kids did not want to play paintball because they were worried it would sting too much when they got hit. But with the advent of the 50 caliber paintball guns, this has all changed!
These guns shoot a smaller paintball, in fact, the 50 caliber paintball guns shoot a paintball that is 1/3 the weight. And the guns are tuned to a slightly slower speed which means when playing with the 50 caliber paintball guns, you get hit with less than 1/3 the sting. In actual lab testing, it was showed that they transfer only 5 joules of energy versus over 13 joules of energy for the standard size paintball.
50 caliber paintball guns Lab testing is one thing, but we wanted to see what the kids thought, so we got in a dozen of the 50 caliber paintball guns and tested them for a few weeks with the toughest judges we could find… 6, 7, and 8 year old kids! And they loved them! Not only do the hits sting less, but the 50 caliber paintball guns are much easier for them to carry. You can see from the picture that the 50 caliber gun (on the bottom) uses a much smaller tank. Because it takes less energy to get the smaller paintball moving, the tank can be a fraction of the size, and yet, the small tank on the 50 caliber paintball gun will shoot more paintballs that the big heavy tank on the 68 caliber!
So if you have some little ones that want to play, feel free to bring them on by, and we’ll let them hold and shoot one of the new 50 caliber guns to see how they like it! We run special games of just 50 caliber kids! We never mix the calibers, so your little ones will not play against people with the bigger guns. They’ll play just with other kids using the paintballs and guns designed for less weight and less sting.
While the 50 caliber paintball guns are one of the driving factors behind our field, there are many other aspects that make a Steeltown Paintball facility a Low Impact Paintball facility.
And you don’t have to be under 10 to use the 50 caliber. We’ve had lots of corporate groups choose the 50 caliber as well. So, maybe you have some new players, some chicken players, some moms or dads that want to play with their kids. No problem! Grab some 50 caliber paintball guns and go have a blast with 1/3 the sting!
The option of choosing between the standard 68 caliber paintball gun and the 50 Caliber paintball gun is just one more reason why Steeltown Paintball Indoor Paintball is the number one destination for kids paintball birthday parties and now makes for a very Safe Paintball Environment!
