I have either played or visited and inspected nearly all the fields in Alberta, as well as many out of province.
Directions to the Field:
Range Road 13 (Allen Beach Road), off Highway 16, West of Stoney Plain.
I have been playing paintball in all its forms for the last twenty-three years, and I have visited almost all of the fields in Alberta, as well as many outside of the province, so it is not to be taken lightly when I say Young Guns is one of the two best fields in Alberta. The other great field is Weekend Warriors. This is not to say that all other fields in Alberta are terrible. A few are, of course (some so bad I inspected them and chose never to play on them), but most are at the least adequate, especially so are many of the smaller courses that provide great facilities despite the setback of being located in remote areas with a limited population.
Young Guns provides a great variety of fields, ranging from woodsball to speedball, to choose from, and all are well maintained. Scenarios and tournaments are run regularly.
Rules are presented clearly and safety is given high priority.
Players of all calibre are treated well, and are not made to feel as though they are nuisances or cash-cows. The focus is on helping all players have as much fun as possible.
Prices are excellent. The pro-shop is well stocked and additional items can be ordered upon request.
I've heard a few (a very few) derogatory comments about Young Guns' facility, but have been unable to find any tangible reason for the slander. The only excuse that comes to mind is that the player who finds fault must be extremely new to playing on any commercial field and, therefore, does not understand what he or she is seeing and experiencing when visiting Young Guns. This player will very disapointed whenever he or she visits any other field in Alberta because the same level of service and field options are not be found anywhere else.
