Period of Field Use:

Other Fields in the Area:
Field of Fire and Paintball USA in Simi Valley
Directions to the Field:
A bumpy dirt road through strawberry fields.
My major complaint about this place is the utter disregard for chronographing the guns. There is a chrono station but it is just used as a place for target practice. After getting hit when I got off the field I told the ref that he needed to chrono these guns, he didn't reply or even acknowledge that I had said anything.
Generally the pain from a hit is fleeting but some of the hits I took hurt more than usual and the pain lasted longer. I was once hit in the stomach at about a five foot range and these shots today felt alot like that. I wear a Hundredth Monkey Padded Cap and I never feel headshots, it just feels like a thud. Today I got hit in the head and I felt a sting through the hat although it was minor, to feel it through that hat the gun had to be shooting hot. Another player also voiced his concern to me.
Paintball fields chronographs exist for the safety of the players. Your lens could fail if hit at a high velocity, you could break a finger. A place that does not enforce this rule is not somewhere that I want to play. This will be my first and LAST time playing here.
You'd be better off going somewhere else.

Yeah I've been there a few times. They don't enforce the 300 FPS limit and when I was there yesterday (my 4th and last time) I went at exactly 300 FPS and the ref said "Turn your gun down", but didn't check to see if I did. If it's a trust thing, it's BS because the refs aren't very responsible for anything. Basically, I agree with you.
Dispute: Hey, I just want to appologise about your past experience at Urban Quest Paintball Field. I want to let you know that actions have been taken and a new staff has been hired and we now have multiple safety briefings and strictly enforce the chronograph rule. if we find anyone shooting over 300 fps we will sit them out for two games and if the problem insists they will be sent home with a bann.
i want you to understand that your problem has been heard and we are doing everything that we can to make your experience as well as everyone else here enjoyable.
