This field has gotten a bad reputation over the years but is now definately one of the best fields around for the entrance fee. The field now has new safety nets to protect players in the staging area and they always have refs and staff members yelling at people that are messing around with their guns outside of the fields and also people that don't have their barrel condoms on. The fields are mainly speedball but there are 2 scenario fields. A fort field and a mounds field. The prices are extremely good the entrance fee a mere 20 dollars for playing all day and all day C02 or N2. They do have food (Hotdogs, chips, cokes, waters, etc.) and you can also call a local pizza restaurante.
the speed ball fields are good, need some fixing and updating/washing off. the woods field is alright, but i have played better. It is true that they are a bit laxed on their 280fps rule. One of the refs has a Timmy and he is shooting well over 280. but it's a fun time to be had especially for the more inexperienced crowd. a thumb and three/quarters up
There are 5 fields with one under construction and the new blowups are soon to come so that will make 7 witch is a lot for the the 20$ intree fee.This is the best field in the area by far. The people that work there will take apart your gun if it breaks to see if they can fix it. The reefs are really good nice and helpful. The fields are well kept and design to be competitive. It seam like every time i go out there some other pro from eather smart parts factory team or some other team is out there to watch and learn. The price is great there paint isn't a huge rip of if you need it. All around the best field I have played and haven't played anywhere sense.

I have played at Field Of Fire in Cali, and Paintball USA in Cali
I really enjoyed this field. Although I must start out by saying that the whole safety issue isn't really addressed there. The nets in-between the field were either torn, or missing all together. I liked the fact that they offered many types of fields. (10 man Lego, 5 man Lego, barrel field, x-ball (wasn't there) fort field, and a woods ball field. ) The prices were reasonable: $25 for all day rental package (gun, mask, 100 paintballs, unlimited CO2.) $20 for all day co2/ HPA/ Nitro and field admittance.
I don't know about other fields but i particularly didn't like their "Hit in the gun and your out" rule. There was NO ENFORCEMENT of the 280 FPS rule, They had a kid out there shooting 323 with a rental gun...(ouch...) I was not aware of any lunch stuff there, but i read that there is. The referees were really nice to my brother and me, and they all reffed pretty fairly. Beware of the Smart Parts factory Pro team who is there ALMOST every weekend. (as this is their home field) I mainly give this field an 8 out of 10. It was a fun day but with only SOME bad stuff.

(If you going to put a bad review read this i no they can do better but can you if you take the change if you open a field of your own)Well i just want to say to ya they do gave a problem with the reffs, when i first showed up there they were a little friendly only i still remember is Ryan(if you remember me austin murray the guy with the 18in barrel hey wazz up) and someother dude that always there. After about 6 months of playing i made a lot of friends there and b slap some of them but there a holes anyways this place is good to play on but with few reffs its sometime hard. I used to no the owner that lady shes really really nice last time i seen her it was her birth day it was in 2004(and HAPPY BIRTH DAY FOR 2005 AND 2006 B/C I WONT B THERE AND HAPPY BIRTH DAY TO YOU DAUGHTER) and we had a ball. After a while they started leting me reff games on my free time as a help not getting played but i got to shoot some NICE GUNSS!!!!!!! and im here to tell it really sucks b/c if you really want to do it right you need to looking at both side and running back and fored when someone calls paint check you runn your ass over there as fast as you can and check if he or she is out or not. And you keep on doing it until the games over and you do it again a minute last with the same or another, and after about 10games you are f ing tired and there still people out there wanting to play plus its hot alot and you got to deal with mad walk ons and cool them down, believe me it hurt. And on top of it all it gets borig alot really fast when you are reffing a group on walk ons that never played before in there life that way alot of there reffs are like that, you will become one of them after about a half a day and there always having trouble getting reffs when i was there, for some reason or another with them that really why they let me really, b/c after they no you they ll let you reff but that got to no you really well i went there for a 6months b4 they let me and i reffed 2months on my free time when i was there. All the fields are okay but that cost money and owning that much land and paying what people they have plus taxes it gets to you if you own a field. So put your self in there shoes and think about doing that over and over all the time. I didnt mean to make this all this long but its the truth so read this and think b4 you write a review and think could i really do better then them in miss everybody there. Im giving it a 10 b/c i went there for so long and i still no alot of people if they are still there.
Official Paintball of Texas in Forney
and a Private Field that requires an invitation
This field is actually a very good field. The whole staff is nice and they will even help out the beginners in a game if everyone agrees that they should. We actually had played one game and everyone there agreed that a ref could help out this one beginner, and this beginner got into the snake and got everybody out with the help from the ref, I was spectating.
The lady that runs the place will even come out and talk to you, and ask you how you liked the field. This usually happens at the end of the day, but she's there all the time. She's really friendly, helpful, and she knows a good bit about markers, so don't be afraid to ask her questions, because she is really helpful.
The X-Ball field that they do have there is actually very well maintained and you usually get 2 ref's if you play on that field, depending on how many people you have in your party.
The Fort is also a very fun field to play on, but it is a very paint consuming field. If you don't have many paintballs left, and you want to play a couple more rounds, I would suggest one of their speed ball fields, which are also very good.
The Forest field they have is another good one, but also very paint consuming, and I believe it's about 1-2 acres big. If it just rained the day before or it's raining when you play it, it will be very muddy and you will get a pound or 2 of mud on your feet.
The rentals at Fort Paintball are Tippmann 98 customs which are VERY well maintained. I believe after each day they take them apart and make sure everything is working, and when they put them back together, they don't chrono them. So when you pick up your rental they are usually running from 285-325 fps, so be sure to make sure to chrono and make sure that every shot you chrono stays around 285 fps, because the field regulation is 300 fps.
They have 2 nitro fill stations and you have to give them your C02 tank if you want to fill it up, but it usually takes them about 15 seconds to fill up your C02.
The facilities there are decent, but they don't have any water fountains, so bring some water before you go. This place is very good if you are close to it, and want to go. Go more during the spring or fall though, because it gets extremely hot during the summer.
$20 walk in, if you bring your own marker and equipment along with paint.
$30 walk in, if you just need a rental gun and you brought paint
$40 walk in, if you need a rental gun and 500 rds of paint.
^all of which include free air.
You must download their waiver and sign it off of www.fortpaintball.com if you want to go straight to playing when you get there. Also, be sure to ask their refs for full rules, and he might let you make up some of the rules if your whole party agrees, but there are some rules which he won't let you change. (ex: Goggles must be on when on the field, fps must be lower than 300, etc.). The goggles on sign is VERY clear, it's about 8 feet long and 3 feet high and is big and yellow, so you don't have an excuse if you don't have your goggles on past that point. The staging area, unlike in other reviews i read, is well out of the way from paint that might fly at you. Plus, it is surrounded by black netting.
Fort Paintball gets a 9, because their facilites there could be improved, but everything else is great.

This is where I first went to play paintball and have gone there twice now. The first time I was with my chruch youth group. They explained to the group how to use the rentals and some basic rules. The fields seem good, since i haven't played anywhere else i can't give much comparison, but their mounds/wood field (in the far back) was fun since it's a large field, and it's not really a field but more so just boundries. Their speedball fields (legos, barrels, spools and airball) are also fun. The second time i went it was me and 2 other guys, i had bought a gun so only one of us rented. Later I chrono'd the rental and it was 330 fps. I think that they need to check the rentals velocity and keep them down under 300. The Refs that we talked to or had ref us were good, and friendly, but some others their seemed to be a lil less with it. This field is good for someone of any level.
Price 20 bucks to walk on, free air, no fee for BYOP
$40-rental pack wth 500 rounds ( i don't know how much the rental is by it's self)
It's pretty much the only field in the area, all the other fields are a good hour away. so if your close to Fort you're prolly not close to anyother field.
Good varitey of fields from a large wood area, and an ok airball.
They don't really make the rules that well known, but most everyone seems to be undercontrol, but newcomers may be lost, but all they have to do is ask and talk to a ref, most are friendly and give pointers and tips.
The road you have to drive down to get to it, not the main road, but the rocky dirt road. It's pretty bad, but they seem to have fixed it a lil since my first time.
Rentals seem to be well maintained but the chrono problem worries me a little.
I am new to paintball, but this place seems good. I enjoy going there. If you are new and lost, ask a ref, most of them will be willing to help and get you playing in no time.
