The ringing was just some random vibration running through the gun, down the barrel, and to the camera. I couldn't hear it while playing, but definitely noticeable in the video.

If you don't mind telling me, what specifically did you do to try and keep paint fill from building up in your flooring surface? Maybe you have an extra trick that would be helpful.

At Westworld they used red baseball infield dirt. It was very good at trapping paint and all you needed to do was rake the top layer every once in awhile and you were good to go. I, however, would not recommend it as good flooring because it stains everything red. I have seen people use playground sand as well, which works well but gets into everything, including rental guns. You can use astro turf which is very easy to clean and looks nice but does require some cleaning. You can even lay down topsoil and grow REAL grass indoors. Use the fire extinguishing system like a sprinkler system if you know what you are doing. You'll have to get a bagging lawnmower and special lighting though.

I would not recommend any smooth flooring because paint + concrete equals an extremely slippery surface and you are asking for a lawsuit. Depending on how much it costs you could put down a layer of those black foam work mats that pop together like puzzle pieces. You could use the colored blocks to indicate starting zones, dead zones, flag stations, etc. I don't know what kind of money that would cost though but it would be an awesome playing surface if a little more expensive. Also look at the ground up tires they use at playgrounds. There are a lot of options you can look at with various costs and advantages to each (hay, aspen, mulch, ground up tires). Depending on your setup you can try a variety of different substrates if you have multiple fields and see which people like the best.

The flooring I decided on was a type of geotextile fabric commonly used in construction under pipes that are being laid in ground. I got the idea from an outdoor field in Washington. It does break down a lot quicker than turf, but the cost of it makes replacing it every year the same cost as astroturf when spread out over 10 years. From the sounds of it from that field I should be expecting to replace it every two years, which I consider better value than turf. It's a very odd fabric. It gives surprisingly good traction, but is very easy to slide on.
