There are a few basic rules to paintgun safety. First and foremost, never fire your paintgun when there are people anywhere near you (this include yourself) not wearing the proper paintball approved goggles. When you are in the designated safe zone, or anywhere that is not the playing fields, make sure to have your barrel sleeve over your barrel as well.
An important thing to note here is that many paintguns will fire a paintball even after the C02 or high pressure system is removed from the gun. It is extremely important to always wear paintball goggles when you work on your paintgun, even if the air source is removed. Whenever possible, keep your paintgun uncocked--note: some paintguns such as the Automag, are cocked whenever air is connected.
It is critical to chronograph your paintgun several times each day during play. Velocities have a tendency to fluctuate during the day.
Lastly, always keep the safety in the "safe" position and if your gun has a power feed, keep it in the "off" mode when not playing the game.
