Review: Overall I think that Shooters has a good foundation off which to build on. A good percent of the time that I am there with my friends everyone seems friendly, and willing to help out other fellow players with answer, and problems ranging from gun use, to play style.

Shooters has one air field, which is used most of the time by the players. It is pretty good, and provides good games when teams are kept between the 3-5 range. Sometime game get to 10 vs 10 on the 5 man field, and trust me then things get hectic. The only complaint about the air field, is that sometimes there might be one or two bunkers, not inflated to max capacity. They can sometimes be a pain if you get caught in behind one.

Shooters also has in my personal opinion a pretty good spool field. It never changes, yet because the bunkers are evenly spread out, and the bunkers are sturdy wood, they provide excellent cover, and chances for advancement throughout the length of the field. One of the better set up spool fields.

Next would be the new yellow half pike field. Heck I don't even know what to call it. Though trust me on this one, it has to be played to understand why it doesn't seem to be played much. At least while I am there. Some of the younger kids might give it a run or two, but it doesn't quite suit my taste.

Next to that would be the village. The village can be real fun when you have a large number of players on it. There is everything from shacks, to an old pickup truck out there to be used as cover. Only complaint here is that if you don't know who is on your team, then chances are later in game you might shoot him. Yet then again that is funny to me.

So now that leaves us with field operation. Shooters field fee seems very fair to me at $5.00. I have been places that are of less quality and paid much more. Heck I know some places that charge $10.00! Shooters is field paint only. Their paint seems just as high as everyone else around, and other places that I have played. I have just come to the fact that most fields will get their money through paint. If you happen to have a HPA tank then you can pay $1.00 for every 1000 psi, or just flat out pay $5.00 for all day air. In my case I just pay for all day air, and be done with it. I am not sure what their rental fees are on their markers, seeing how I bring my own. But most of their markers are Tippmann 98 Customs, and Tippman A5s.

Now every field has a grip I assume, and mine would have to do with the refs at certain times. They know their stuff that is for sure, et at times, they seem a little too laid back as they watch the game. Only when an oncoming bunker tag, or when it's down to 1 on 1 do I see real action from them. Most of the time outs are called by the player either shooting, or the player hit. Not everyone is honest, but at times it can pass.

Their shop where you pay for your equipment and what not has drinks and coke machines in there as well as a few snacks at the desk where you pay. The owner seems nice enough, but be warned he doesn't take any crap. Plugs, and condoms on folks!

Shooters has a good thing going, though I do believe they could improve on the air ball field, and perhaps have ladder matches, and the like. And have refs that are into the game each time to make good calls.

Oh there is a guy up there by the name of Jackie I do believe. I hope I get his name right. Now he seems like a real down to earth cool arse dude. One of the many characters up there that can make a day worth while if you get to playing some good games with him.
