Review: I've been playing here for a while, mostly because there aren't many other fields within driving distance of me. Paintballistics is run by a couple rednecks from a trailer. They're nice, but the fields aren't set up very well, and bunkers fall over.

As far as my experience goes, this place has always been great. The owner's relatively nice, helpful, and is likely to do a lot to ensure return customers. He's fun to play against on the rare occasion that he gets to, as he doesn't take the game overly seriously.
They've got a good variety of fields. A 5/7-man airball field, a couple nice pipe hyperball fields, one butted against a 'village' type, attack and defend, and a couple woods fields. I've heard people complain about the spools in the village and attack and defend, but a big part of this game is adapting. If your feet are showing, learn from it and change your stance.

Prices are great. Cheap entry and air, BYOP, and standard retail prices on Big Ball, Premium, and a few other brands of various qualities, so they're not ripping you by charging you $90 for a case of Big Ball like some fields.

I've heard complaints about the safety practices. I've seen one or two problems the first time I went, but they've lately really cracked down. I've seen refs tackle people to the ground to cover their face if they'd removed their masks. Do it a couple times, and they kick you out for the day. It's not just protecting you from Murphy's Law, it's an insurance and licensing thing. You get an eye out, they likely get shut down. Think of the other players. The refs are STRICT about barrel covers and dry-firing in the staging area.

Unfortunately, the younger ref(s) aren't as strict as the older full-time ones. Also, the owner occasionally recruits part-time refs when it's really busy, and they don't care as long as they do a good enough job to get their free play or whatever. Luckily, almost all of the regular players are self-governing, and enforce the rules themselves.

Said players, myself included, are generally a nice bunch. Quick to offer advice to a new guy, congratulate a good shot or surrender (bunker) move, even if they got taken out, and direct refs to any suspected cheaters. Guys from a couple local teams are a common sight, and know their way around.

Another point: surrender rule. Within ten or fifteen feet, yell 'Surrender!' and they're out. No bunkering. Sometimes not as fun, but it prevents the harshest welts and keep the younger players from getting scared on the fields, and I'd personally like to see the young guns turn into the old-timers eventually.

I don't get to go often as I'd like, but if you head out, look for me; I'm one of the few pump players, and as far as I know, the ONLY guy that plays with my new black and green Phantom or a polished PGP (Brass is shiiiiny). To answer your questions now, yes it is accurate. Yes, it is old. Yes, it only holds ten shots. Yes, I know everyone else plays with semi-autos that can shoot ten times as fast as I can, and yes, I have shot people that threw daddy's money at a Dye Species Intimidator 4.0 as often as they've shot me. Heck, probably as often as they've shot in my direction. And yes, it is because I AM that damn good. *cough*luck*cough*
