Airsoft Glasses vs paintballs There's this club...

a paintball 3 grams flying at 300 fps hits with 1.5 pounds of force.
ten times the impact
and an almost completely unrelated topic for those who think paintball makes them tough, a lacrosse ball going 80 mph (which is a fairly normal shot speed) hits with 128 pounds of force
Lacrosse is an acceptable sport, yet paintball and airsoft are considered violent or whatever negative adjectives people think of. Genius.
Anyways, regardless of what the math tells you about BBs and paintballs, would you really want to take the chance with your eyes?
i am not saying don't wear goggles, im just pullin up some figures here. a bb or a paintball could easily take out your eyes

At any rate, I think glasses can too easily be knocked off someone's face to be safe for paintball, even if they could stop one. The second one is going to hurt a lot more.
edit: woops, didn't look past the first page.
