Webe's (Closed down and gear was bought by Adrenaline I think)
Paintball at Ricky's
Directions to the Field:
on Anthony street in Canutillo. I block from downtown. About 30 minutes from central El Paso.
I've played there 3 times. I like it.
-Inexpensive ($13.50 each I think).
-Free CO2 and HPA fills.
-Field paint or bring your own. Do not buy the Diablo Heat though. If you are going to use at least a case of paint, their prices are pretty competitive.
-Lots of covered picnic tables to setup on.
-Lots of parking
-Three fields plus airball field (NEW bunkers installed August 2007!!! NICE!).
-Variety of skill levels in players. Play with who you want (first time birthday parties, more experienced players, etc....)
-Open early. Play before it really gets hot then take a lunch break.
-On site marker repair available with good rates.
-Very safety focused. All players had to sit through a safety briefing.
-Safety: A ref watches you chrono your marker before entering field.
-Good ref'ing. Good at paint checks, safety, cheaters, etc...
-Lots of friendly refs who used radios to keep in contact with each other, etc....
-Kind of far out of town.
-They had some chips and sodas, but no real food.
-Diablo Heat field paint. For some reason really lousy, would bounce 80% of the time off of a spool 30 feet away!). They do seem to get fresh paint in often though.
-Sandy. It's El Paso, what do you expect? But you will get grit in everything.
-After seeing how lousy the Diablo Heat paintballs were, they were more than happy to exchange them for better paint. THAT is service my friends.
-This place was a lot sandier than Ricky's. I don't know about Adrenaline. Just take extra care to cover your gear and be careful not to scratch your lenses, get sand in pods, etc.... Sand in pods was a big problem - I would actually close mine after emptying them into my hopper (not necessarily a good idea in a firefight). I probably wouldn't go on a windy day.
-These guys will not bull&!*t you about safety. If you get caught slacking on safety, a ref or somebody is definitely going to tell you.
