Photo Armory: Safety First at Babe of the Month
Paintball is a game in which every safety measure must be taken to protect the players, referees and onlookers. Paintball markers are classified as firearms which is why in Barbados, they are kept closely guarded on the grounds of the Barbados Rifle Association’s Paragon Military Base, Christ Church. While a paintball cannot actually cause bodily harm, these markers must be handled with care because they look very similar to authentic guns and can therefore only be discharged at events officially sanctioned by the Barbados Rifle Association and under the watchful eye of Paintball Barbados.
During the Adrenaline Sun: Babe of the Month photo shoot, we made sure that every precaution was taken to ensure the safety of everyone involved. Each of the markers which we used were unloaded and de-gassed. They were also further inspected by Nicholas of Paintball Barbados to ensure that they were completely safe to use for the session.
In this behind the scenes photo, our model Cheriene Waldron is being instructed by Nicholas on the proper way to hold the marker as Adrenaline Sun’s Jamal Hall looks on.
