I can dig the respect the neighbors thing. In my opinion though, as long as youíre far enough away that the noise and potential stray shots wonít affect anyone, and you clean up all your rubbish, then no problem.
I think the problem is that too often paintballers donít have that kind of respect. I go to renegade fields and there are mounds of trash, or I see paintball splats all over street signs. No wonder people hate us. No wonder renegade fields get shut down.
So to end my rant... respect the aina, respect the locals.
