Review: Pro's---
* Fills HPA
* Good for new guys
* Close to Medicine Hat
* Corey is knolegable with open bolt blow back markers
* Decent selection of paint for ***OFF FIELD*** use
* Reffing is alright, can't complain.

Cons---
* Doesn't fill full 4500 fills
* Does hot fills (Fills to 4500 and lets it cool, but doesn't top it off, you end up with 3800 PSI)
* Has troubles fixing higher end markers
* Junkyard field is DANGEROUS, there is broken glass and steel rods in the oddest places.
* "Speedball" field consists of gravel, with a few blow up bunkers, and *WOODEN* spools randomly placed among the fields boundries.
* Pro shop is slightly overpriced
* HPA fills are $5 for a 4500 fill, but you normally only get 3800, and $4 for a 3000 fill, but you normally only get 2800 or so if you're lucky.
* Paint prices - Charges 0.08/ball, NOT including tax, he then adds tax onto it. Also, the paint he sells there is fairly decentley priced, with the exception that he doesn't allow it on the field.
* WoW (Walk on Wednesdays), there are players, willing to drop $40-80 + field fee to play, and if there aren't more then 6-8 players, he cancels.


Those are some of the pros and cons of the field, in conclusion, I think that if he dropped the prices of paint, he could make some serious money. Think about it, the majority of speedballers will shoot roughly a case per practise, and he sells by 0.08/ball, but what player is going to play that price to shoot so much paint, when they could go to a different field and get better prices, I think he could drop the prices of the paint to about 0.05, or even 0.04 per ball. I know for a FACT that with just that slight decrease in paint price, alot more of the players I know would play there. Also, I think he could look into a 4500 compressor which would help with the not so great fills he currentley offers.

Now that the junkyard field has been completely redone, it's much, much better. Speedball field is too small now though.
