Only every played woodsball a bunch of times
This place is ok, i went with about 25 other people, the owner (a really nice guy) said it was the largest group he's ever had, we got a discount of $50 a case of blaze (normaly $65) which was dimpled some, the prep area was crowded with how many people was there, a little bathroom, a window to look down at the field, they told us to always have a condom on the barrel and not a plug (supplied if you didn't have one), they also had a chrono with a 270fps rule but no one checked us i know guys had 300+ because everyone had bad welts and some bleed including one guy through a mask shot
very small waiting area down on the field, the field was POORLY lit, you could not see at all, the snake espically, there was one light at each break-out point, that was it, the field does have sawdust which is hard to run in, and if its thin, it will hurt your knees or elbow or whatever, the field was small, about 25x20 yds, the dust will get everywhere, games will last about 1 minute tops, it is exciting though
Dispute: First off i know first hand that all guns were checked prior to play at this field. I'm a ref there and we do it ourselves. they hand us the guns and WE chrono and adjust their markers. Also the field limit is 250 at this field because the field is only 90X45 ft. In response to the bleeding, anyone who has played for any amount of time knows that on a field that small bleeders WILL happen a lot.
and in response to the flooring at Hot Shots, we now have astro turf over top of the sawdust. it's a really good surface. not as good as AAPP but better than most outdoors, and way better than Crazy Dave's.
Dispute: Safety is one thing that is emphasized at Hot Shots. I have played there and I have reffed there. Every time I have been there I have seen the owner making sure everyone had their guns at 250fps or lower. I wasn't there for this group, however I would be beyond surprised if this review was true.
As far as field quality, it is not as good as somewhere like AAPB, but, a day of paintball at Hot Shots is not comparable to a day at AAPB. At AAPB you most likely have to share the field, at Hot Shots you can reserve it. Hot Shots cost $10 a person to get in, that includes your air and the paint is very reasonable. Don't get me wrong AAPB is a great field, but if your looking for something a little more personal and more affordable, pick Hot Shots.
