If there are high limits because of longer ranges, usually players are expected to carry a secondary weapon or sidearm that doesn't shoot as hot for close quarters. I personally wouldn't run a 360fps rifle and tune my pistol to 450. Just doesn't make any sense, and is rather irresponsible. Unless they plan to use their sidearm as a DMR and their rifle as a pistol, which sounds like another problem unto itself lol.
Unless your hosts are idiots, this is pretty much it. Any FPS/Joule limit for guns, other than sniper if that applies at the fiedl, apply to all guns, pistols/smg included. Would you chrony a GBBR at your field?
