This one was decent. No skirmish, but less formal all around.
I thought this facility had both good and bad qualities.
Price was fair, especially if you split a case of balls with a buddy
Fields were neat, we played all four and I enjoyed them all
Self serve air is nice
Refs were nice, if not always attentive
I believe many fields limit the use of automatic fire or burst. For the love of God, this needs to be implimented unless it's a game with all advanced people or everyone agrees to it or something. Having half of the players with rentals, or with non-high end equipment against the other half of advanced players shooting 15 balls a second with high-end setups was simply unpleasant to say the least. It would make it much more fun and even for everyone to be on single shot mode when playing in a mixed experience crowd.
I would also like to see it mandated that the guns are chronographed. The machine is just sitting around like it's an optional thing. The few people that I did see use it set off the alarm, so I'm sure many people were shooting too fast.

Dispute: Couple things...
1. Single-shot is the only shot allowed. The high-end marker guys look like they are shooting burst or auto but they arn't. They just have quick trigger fingers.
2. Guns are chronoed. The field limit is 300FPS, the chrono alarms at 285FPS (I'm 99% sure). So the alarm sounding dosen't mean they are over, it means they are close. Guns are chronoed at the beginning of play (early morning) then again when guns are taken apart if they wish. Chronoing isn't actually monitored, but I bet that no more the 3 people at the field were shooting hot.
No jeremy Single shot is not the only shot allowed. I've played against players using full auto. i know they were usin full auto cause i walked uo to the guy who was using it and he admitted to using it. i even tried his gun full auto shooting at the lights. the refs were even in there between rounds playing with the kids full auto guns and did'nt care they were using it. as for 300 fps that is correct along with the crono set at 285.
