Review: I drove to the site on 3/14/05 to just check it out.
It was a Monday and it was at 4:30 pm.
They were closed, I know, but I wanted to see how the fields were set up.

The mile long "driveway" going there was like, ok, worse than the moon, but with full gravity. If you have a low slung car, you may wish to reconsider and borrow your dads old Dodge truck. There were potholes within potholes, and then there were the rough spots. It made Paintball USA's driveway look downright civilized. Even the fieldworkers going home could barely keep their '91 Buicks going along. Driving through the rows of cabbage may have been smoother.

The PB range is covered on 3 sides by strawberry and vegetable fields. The north side is the Santa Clara river. I think the river may have washed away some of their shooting fields because my son and I only saw the tire field and the "urban" field. The urban field looked kind of cool, but one of the buildings had some of the giant tractor tires in it, kind of makes it hard to duck for cover while just trying to get a footing.

There was clear wide open area that may have been the airfield. it was right next to the river. Actually the whole range occupies a strip along the river. I read below that they had 7 fields. We saw only 3 fields; the airball field, the tractor tire field, and the urban field. If I'm wrong about this, then please correct me. The whole area could use a more eficient design. For example if the check in, lunch, break area were centrally located.

The oil pumps churning around the area was cool, lends to the ambience of the tough shooter image. Too bad there is no way to include them into the shooting field. Maybe the owner could set up some fake ones. The pumps moving up and down and trying to shoot through it would be great.

I'll sign off by suggesting my fantasy field - An atv or off-road go-cart (Yerf Dog) field. Players would be in 2 seaters driving around shooting at each other. The driver would have to shoot with a red button on the wheel, like a fighter aircraft. The passenger would give directions and shoot most of the time. Full helmets, gloves, etc. would have to be worn and more than one hit would be allowed due to the effort of setting up. Just think though, there'd be nuts, oh, I mean extreme players, who'd load up their atv/cart with some awesome firepower (ie cannons).
