Hell Survivors® Paintball Field Owner says "NO!" to Oil-Filled Paintballs!

Hell Survivors® Paintball Field Owner says "NO!" to Oil-Filled Paintballs!
In a bold statement for the vital safety for our industry, Field Operations pioneer Dave Massey has denounced the use of Oil-Filled paintballs at his legendary Hell Survivors® Michigan Playfield, the world's longest running paintball operation. Massey states, "Most of the major paint brands out there now use OIL in the fill to cut their costs to reduce prices. This seems to be a blatant disregard for our environment, which represents a potential threat to the survival of our beloved game. These oil ingredients pose a major concern to our business and our entire industry, and it has to stop!"

The oily fills have some hazardous disadvantages:
Oil makes it hard to clean goggles, which can lead to "hit" players lifting their masks to see where they are walking after being shot in the lens!

Field Operators report that over weeks or months, the oily residues are turning into disgusting BLACK FUNGUS and mold growth on trees, props, buildings and bunkers.

Fungus & Mold exposure can lead to serious allergic bio-reactions in people and animals.

After a quarter century as a successful field operator and retailer, Dave Massey has presented his business ideas at many seminars and industry conferences for Field Operators. "Of course, we all want to keep our paintball costs as low as possible, but enough is enough!" claims the outspoken Massey. "In recent years, wholesale paint prices went so low that EVERY major manufacturer literally went bankrupt! How much more evidence do we need that dirt-cheap prices have gone way too far? It is up to us business operators to try and stop this!"

Now, with paintball manufacturers merging or coming back with new names and Chinese sourcing, their efforts to keep selling at bankruptcy prices by using dangerous oil fills could severely punish us all if environmental whistle-blowers get upset, or worse, if accidents or illnesses related to these oil residues become publicized. Every day, Dave Massey is joined by more responsible Paintball entrepreneurs and players. His passionate plea is simple: "I urge every Field Operator and Retailer to insist on pure formulas with NO OIL from your supplier. If they won't guarantee it, then call the staff at the new PROCAPS, makers of DXS EcoFillTM and original PEG formula paintballs, the best environmentally sound paintballs that I could find."
