Review: Fields: the fields at pnl are pretty good, ghost town, tee pees, spools and blue barrels. each with different games that can be played there. how ever the ghost town structure could use some refinishing, i played there about 4 years ago and just this month and it seems like the same damages are still present. rotted floor boards, slippery ramps and built up paint making slippery floors and surfaces.

Prices: costs are okay. it could be a bit less for players with own equipment, there not much of a difference from renting price. and the super increase of cost from the proshop and the field shop is in sane! i know its a convenience but charging $45 for a case at the front shop and almost $80 at the field is crazy mark up! how ever they do have free air all day which is a plus.

Safety: alot of the times i feel that many guns are not chrono checked enough or ever. me and my friends have been shot and had serious bruises and even had bleeding from a scraping paintball or two. how ever they do make sure that barrel socks and masks are all when they need to be but Chrono checking must be done more frequently! and when the refs are alerted they just brush it off because "they play here all the time, their guns are fine"

Game times: field time is good with many timed games or elimination type scenarios. HOWEVER the time between games is ridiculously too long! almost 20 mins or longer between some games you can be there from opening (9am) till close and only play a handfull of times, and they didnt even start a game untill 10am. time between games needs to be shorter!

Proshop: isn't anything to brag about, they have the basics but nothing i would go out of my way for. the maintenance pricing seems a bit high, got charged $15 to replace a ~$3 part. also the cleanliness of the shop is pretty poor. during which process they also damaged my gun and did not tell me, i noticed it later. they had to apparently cut out one of my screws to open the gun but they didn't just cut the screw the also cut the area around the screw and in return this also broke the trigger guard of my tippman.

Food: players can bring their own food or even have it delivered to the fields which is fine, they do have a cafe/kitchen that seems to open late ~1:30pm and not to much variety but the prices are okay. i would suggest bring your own food.

Paint: they paint they sell is no where near the best but they charge for it like it is. also they sell different paint to different people, let me explain. if you bring your own gear they sell you one paint, if you rent they sell you another. and apparently you can NOT use any other paint in the rental guns beside the stuff they give you. a team mate of mine got removed for using the wrong paint in the rental gun, even though the paint was purchased at the proshop. he was never told that he couldn't use a different paint.

Staff: the refs are usually okay, never really seen any disputes or warnings given but they do make sure every has their masks on and are clear on the rules. how ever my friends and i got accused of stealing equipment that we have owned for many years, only because it was of similar design or same brands, even though their stuff is colored/marked. they even went so far as to remove tubes from my vest and take them from me with even after some talking it over.

Players: the players are really great every one that is there is there to have fun, players at other tables will often share gear and extra paint or even food and water, never seen any fights or disputes out of games/fields.

over all i would give PnL a 4 out of 10, they need to fix their damaged fields and change the timing between games, check and regulate chrono better and better mark and post they regulations regarding equipment and paint usage. and they should think about adjusting their pricing and see about some better staff policies.
