Review: Arrived at field and found the Pro-shop right away , nice and cool on these very hot days, watched the video on what to do and Pops filled us in the rest of the field rules.
We went for the upgrade to the Autocockers X 2 as we have both played with these before , the markers where in good condition and came with Dye barrels so they shot where you wanted them too , the one my son had developed a leak from the HPR so it was changed without any hassle this went to the chrono for setting but the LPR was all over the place back to the Pro-shop and it was changed again for an ION . This was Pops grandson's Jacob's back up gun and he said if that didn't work then we will get a brand new one out the box for us to play with , can't get any better than that .

PRICES
We were not charged the full price for the upgrade to the Autocockers , Revos and air bottles and the first 100 balls each , Total cost was $65 for 2 autocockers packages and a box of paint which is a very good price

FIELDS
Played on the Speed ball field which was a combination of spools various sizes and these Plastic boxes about 3'x3'x5' high it was a fast field once you got the layout sorted played this one 3 times
Played next on the town field which was fun I was the last one left on my side thought the guy in the hut in front of me was on my team but he was not as I found out after my son back doored me and went on to take the guy in the hut in front and found out it was one of his own team but he was facing the wrong way and was going to shoot him anyway
Last field we played on was the Hyperball field played this 3 times also the locals say there's not enough barricades but the field is just a bit bigger than the rest and it is very playable once you get into it . On the last game it was just my son and 4 of the opposition left a bit one sided only when you don't know my son 3 came at him but not all together bad move 1 came for the head bang that didn't work he was sent walking then 2 tried it the next time he took 1 then the other and then the last player thought he had to be out and just started walking from his bunker bad move my son went to his right asked him to surrender but recieved no answer so just put 1 in his butt , he was not too happy about that as he thought it was all over, was fun to watch 4 on 1 and the under dog won.
The field team was having a practise on Sunday at 7-30am and we were invited to play if we wanted didn't need to be asked twice we were there. Pop gave us paint at team price and we were set up with a Shocker each to play with for NO charge. Had a ball , hard , fast paintball at it's best no surrender rules just in your face balling , this was great

REFS
they were good , they didn't have to do much as everyone was honest and when shot they were out of there straight away, checked paint checks when asked , kept the play flowing,

FACILITES
Good

FOOD
You can't get better anywhere , Peter cooks up the best food on any field , it is fresh and hot and hits the spot.
When we went on the Sunday there was a selection of cerals there for the early birds who came out for the Team practise and any other early birds who came for play at 9am

PRO-SHOP
Sold all the usual stuff plus more , Shawn, Pop's son is a certified air smith so he can fix any gun which is good as this keeps the customers happy when problems ocurr and that can spoil your day of play

PAINT
We were shooting the STINGER it is fresh the next day from PMI and it shot straight and was consistent and broke on impact everytime .

CONCLUSION
If you want a good days balling and are in the Tri-State area pay Silver Spur a visit you won't be disappointed
Prices are good and cheap
And last but not least Pop's, Shawn, Jacob and the guys thanx for a great time we will be in contact soon . You guys ROCK

Here's a thought for all you guys who think PAINT is Expensive at $70-$90 USD as in Australia the Rec players have to pay $150 USD for a box if they buy the whole box and it is $230 USD if he buys it by the pod , and the paint is not fresh it is at least 8 weeks old if lucky as it has spent 6 weeks on a ship and then it spends time in customs and then time at the supplier to the fields so it could be between 8-12 weeks before the player gets it

enjoy your Paintball
