Skirmish USA, Coram Long Island, Paintball Velocity
Because I am an avid Woodsball Player and enjoy large terrain areas, I never cared to play at the Staten ISland paintball center even though I understand they do have a small woodsball field. However, I did go to their complex once to just use their paintball range. Their website says for you to come down and try out your new markers and gear on their range. So I did. However, this is what disurbed me about the place:
I arrived to test out my new HPA/Remote setup. I was not interested in playing any paintball, just fire a few shots and Chrono my marker on their range. The woman there at the desk made me buy her paintball. For what??? I told her I was just going to shoot maybe 10 rounds off. I had no problem paying for admission....but come on.....to fire off a few rounds to test my marker out, I had to buy their paint? That is bad business. Their website invites you down to test your equipment out, which I saw as a great selling tool for people to want to play on their fields. However, this mandatory thing about people having to use their paint for their range is just ridiculous!
On a good note, their staff is very attentive and helped me with a problem I had with my remote. I can't rate the place because I never played there, however forcing me to buy their paintballs to test my marker out was not right.
