Velocity, Jungle Island, Weekend Warriors, Borderland Paintball (when it existed)
I want to get something out before my review so that you guys reading this understand what I'm basing my review on.
That being said, I'll start by saying that I'm somewhat of an old-school paintball player. I prefer wooded and concept fields to most speedball and hyperball courses. I own my own equipment, but I believe that providing an enjoyable experience for the new player renting gear is just as important as the guy walking around with $2000+ worth of gear on.
Now that I've got that out, in my opinion Camp Pendleton is the best paintball park in Southern California. No, it doesn't have the fields of say Hollywood Sports Park or SC Village, but I'm glad that it doesn't. The fields at Camp Pendleton are big, big enough to handle groups of 20 on 20. When you start the game, you can't see your opponents flag station and I like that just fine. This means that you may need to use some tactics and dare I say, "strategy" to get your opponent's flag rather than simply "hose" the field in paint.
I've actually seen the refs at Camp Pendleton break up the groups of walk-on players into smaller groups in order to keep the team size reasonable. I was also pleased to see the refs make the wanna-bes with Angels, Intimidators, and other tricked-out guns play in the advanced group so that they would not be on the same field as the beginners with rental gear. This might seem strict to some, but believe me, this is exactly what some other parks need. This keeps the atmosphere somewhat friendly and family oriented which is just what you want to experience.
My hat goes off to the management of the Camp Pendleton Paintball Park, they truly have done what it takes to keep the sport affordable, safe, and fun.
Hey! the guys with the Angels Cockers and TImmies aint wanna bes the people who call them wanna bes r wanna bes, like u. I got a cocker and i aint no frickin wanna be.

HEY!!!! Timmies and Angels are not wanna-be guns. If you have a problem with them then email wdp, worrgame products, Bob Long and all of the high end manufacturers and tell them that the only people buying their guns are wann-bes. ok? go ahaid, they would like to know that all of the people that they sponsor are wanna-bes. so, if u have a damn problem then SCREW U! go review your mom's cook book.
You guys are funny, especially since you used the same name twice... The funny part about it, is that I never even mentioned "Autocockers" and that you missed the whole point of my review entirely. If you wanted to start a flame war, take both your names and go somewhere else... LOL
