access to them.
Children should never be allowed to have access
to paintball guns without direct adult supervision and even them,
extreme care should be exercised. A moment of inattention could result
in serious injury or death.
CO2 Cartridge Handling and
CO2 cartridges, canisters, and tanks are under high

if exposed to high temperature. Danger increases with temperature. A
closed environment, such as a car on a hot day, can quickly lead to
dangerous temperatures that create serious risk and danger.

temperature and pressure, the contents of a CO2 cartridge or cannister

considerable pressure and must be properly stored and handled. The

the greater the pressure and the greater the danger.
