I have been paint balling on and off for about 3 years. Although I play very rarely I have been to a good sized amount of paintball fields. So far throughout my "paintball career" I've found that most paintball fields tend to be ran rather shoddy. The refs are always jerks, the paintballs are too expensive, and one receives little to no help if their gun malfunctions other than "you can rent one of ours". Let me be the one to tell you that this is NOT the case with pirate paintball. Aside from having one of the best speed ball courses I've played on and an air ball course this paintball field had one more thing, people who actually care. The only way I can explain how nice these people were is to say that I honestly would go back again if I could just to hang out with these people. In being around them one realizes quite quickly that they are really here for the love of paintball, not the money involved. Much as if you were playing with your best friends, if you aren't having a good time, then they aren't. Its as simple as that.
