3131 Harvard Street Boise, ID 83705. When you get behind the airport and past all the tanks/military vehicles, look for the silhouette of a player with a gun. Turn there, follow it down to the military helicopters, and turn right . It's located in a big old hanger. They also have a store in Meridian at 1500 N Locust Grove, Meridian ID 83642. It's called True Action Sports, and is just a store--no field.
I have been using this field for almost 2 years now, and I have never had any problems with them. Their prices are low, and they are always ready to help with any questions. My friend bought an electronic hopper for his Spyder Sonix Pro, and Jeremy (i think is his name) put a better feed neck on it for no extra charge. Their rental room is stocked with a variety of masks, and they have Tippmann 98 Customs for rent. Most are stock guns, with a couple M-16-style 98s. They have a refrigerator stocked with energy drinks and sodas, which can be purchased for a good, low price.Their indoor field has two towers and the cover is evenly spaced. Their two outdoor fields are nice too. They even have some old cars to hide behind! There are two observation rooms on the second floor that are used to watch indoor games. One is small and is just a couple chairs. The other reminds me of a conference room. A big table, lots of chairs, and a good view outside the window. The bigger one must be booked ahead of time. All-in-all, the field is a great place for beginners and experts alike. 10 out of 10!
One last thing I forgot to mention: the FPS limit is 250 Feet-Per-Second. And they do have a chrono machine on-site.
They have moved most of their merchandise to True Action Sports in Meridian. They have some miscellaneous stuff like masks, microfiber cloths, spare mask lenses, and paint, but all of their other stuff has been moved. They are open Friday-Sunday, and you can play any other day of the week with a reservation. Here's their website: http://www.truepaintball.com/

My first and only visit left a great impression on me. The guy in charge of running the place was very helpful, very knowledgeable and took interest in his customer's questions. His storefront was still developing so there was a lot of clutter, boxes, old equipment sitting around but they transitioned from 2 stores to one so that is expected.
The store had plenty of new and used gear to choose from, whether your just getting into the sport or your a seasoned veteran, this is truly a one stop shop. For just combining 2 stores, it was organized enough for a customer to find what they were looking without asking for help.
Prices were very reasonable. Paint was as low as $35 a case and as high as $50 for all kinds of quality paint. I found no dimples in the paint purchased that day. Field fees were reasonable, maybe a little below industry standard! Rental packages were cheap as well.
The field was great. The indoor field was a tactical/urban environment that included tires, wooden bunkers w/ windows and cutouts, a center tower etc...plenty of places to take cover and maneuver as a team. The floor is a little uneven seeing that it is composed of a sandy/dirt mixture. It is smaller, which made for fast paced games. I would not have more than 20 players on the field at one time. Unless you incorporate the use of the outdoor field as well. The outdoor field is also great with a lot of tactical places to use as cover.
Safety was the field owner's priority. He went through all the basic safety rules and regulations before players took to the field. He really went above and beyond to stress the importance of playing safe and having fun.
Overall, this is an excellent field with great prices and great staff. Highly recommended.
