Directions
to the Field:
It is on Lackland AFB close to Security Hill.
Review: Safety is a big concern to the people here. They stopped every safety mishap before it happened, including barrel socks, and mask violations. They are very strict. If they have to warn you more then twice your pretty much so done for the day. If you get into it with the refs, you'll be done for the day and possibly for a good while. They are not trying to be mean or PB-Nazi's but one screw up and the field will be shut down.

Rentals are $15 and that includes a Tippman 98 Custom (if I remember correctly), mask, barrel sock, all day air and field fee. FIELD PAINT ONLY!

If you buy Field paint you pay $5 field fee and $2 for all day air.

If you bring your own paint, $10 field fee and $2 for all day air.

Paint is $40 a case(2000 rds.) or $11 a bag(500 rds.)

Hours of Operation are Saturday 9am - 5pm and Sunday 1pm -5pm.

Exclusive use; group rates available.

If you need anymore info please call 210-925-5532/5533

As for my review of the park, there are 2 fields and plenty of refs. There is a set of bleachers, safety netting, and surfaces to work on your marker. there are port o potties or you can use the indoor plumbing at the registration office. They do sell Gatorade's, and water.

The first field is an inflatable bunker field. It's set up nicely and the snake is in the right spot to run up the side of the opposing team. It is very nicely sized, and I had no complaints about it.

The second field is made of giant wire spools, and a van in the center. This field is great. You can crawl under the spools and surprise attack people. (no blind shooting though).

There is plenty of players that come out from first time players to tourney players.
There was a group of Para-jumper trainees that came in shorts and skin tight shirts, Needless to say they got lit up really good! the field is a good time when you just want to get some speedball in or some good recball on the spool field.

Now for the reason I give this field an 8 out of 10. It is a long walk from the fields and staging area to the Reg office and parking. Also, when I went I had a few problems with the tourney players. There was one guy in blue that I plainly shot 3 times in a row because he wouldn't get out of the game. He wiped many times and didn't get called on it. This particular person also plain out lied to a ref to stay in the game and shoot me out. The ref's also didnt paint check this person when I called for one, and it wasnt an issue with not hearing because I was 10 feet from the ref.

Overall its a good field. There's just always those little issues at every field.

Live long and paintball......
