Review: 3,$113.82,Well? These 3 statements sum up my visit to Smokey Mountain Paintball. I found it easily{Its on the side of the road}.I then had to leave to go to a ATM machine as SMPBs credit card machine was not working.Staff was helpful w/ this although I felt like they were expecting me to pull the cash from my pocket.After visiting 2 stores I was back w/ cash in hand.15$ each field fees,10$ each all day air ,tax, and box of paint.Yes this is a trailer/office ,The toilet is a porta potty outside,no selection of paint avail,And in my or most anyones opinion the place was very dirty/unkept. Parts/accesories were haphazardly thrown about or stapled here or there on various parts of the wall.Outside in the staging area was also sub had rained the day before.the is no covered area to sit/work w/ gear. Now let the games begin>first I most thank "blackbeard" for placing teflon tape on a gun and his using wrenches to tighten a part.Next to the course. 8 guys there wanted to play woodsball.Are there 2 wball courses?I only saw 1.And is really a wball course?There is a place on the left and a place on the right, you face the other side ,,count down 3...2...1 go. There are a few trees to the left and scant small ones to the right .the is a small "fort" in the middle...a few small bridges over creeks.But since paintballls can reach each others starting place and the majority of the "cover" is the same hard plastic 3 foot by 3foot squares that are used in the speedball area. I would have to describe this also as a speedball area. Here we go game 1..I walk to the left Staging area{actually a 10 foot square roped off w/ caution tape} Game 1.My gun not shooting{my used once unmodified /just purchased. Tippmann 98 Custom is makining the ppppppppppfffffttttttttt sound.Yes its full of air.Game 1 over ..return to shop. staff asked to look at gun,the "Not Blackbeard employee" said initially it needed oil,next velocity screw in too far,next too much oil,next too much oil ruined a o ring,"we will take it apart and fix it its very simple" I believed and thanked them I was also given a rental gun to use.Now game 2 I again trekked up the mud ,took my position again on the left side..3 2...1...Their Gun doesnt work..again back to the shop 2nd game over. By now the Tippman experts and a "regular customer" have done God knows what to my gun...bring it to me "Its all fixed" No IT wasnt Fixed..... Same problem as before..I loaded my half a hopper{I only had a half a hopper as the staff had spent the other half playing with my and ther guns} back into there gun and was assigned to the right hill,.. Game 3 here we go ! 3 2 1 go. I was hit in three steps/seconds. No place to hide and I am not running in the wet mud Game 3 over ..Gun in air people still shooting at me{ref not doing his job}I again treked to the wet tables and wait,. My partner played these 3 games lasting 10 or minutes and played 1 more that I sat out.It started to rain I approached the staff about playing?not playing 3 games and his quote to me was "WELL" I know some might say They tried to fix your gun . I say tried and failed with no explanation.If I were a Doctor and stopped for a wreck and didnt render care then I failed.This Gun Of Mine is the same gun they rent.What part do I need? They dont know!!! Did there less than steller performance further damage my gun? Were screws stripped? Were the cases damaged???Were internal parts lost/damaged or incorrectly reinstalled??? When my gun is seen by a competant mechanic then I Will Know..!!! Others might say they loaned you a gun. Yes they did a broken one at first and then another that I shot 3 times.Also let it be known that after there failure to fix my gun the and there failure to provide any explanation. The staff just went off/locked the door and played paintball. Also note that during the rules explaination the ref is smoking,,I know it doesnt bother some folks But it greatly bothers me and my asthmatic partner.. Well there you have it...3 paintballs shot .....113.82$ spent. "WELL" ....Its raining Im leaving Im very unhappy!!! I my partner and the other 16 guys that I know Will Never Visit this place again!!!
