Does airsoft hurt?
It's more like a sting. If we get about 60-80 on a Saturday and 120-130 on a Sunday, it must not hurt that bad. The "pain" is part of the game. It's how you know you've been hit. There's no physical marking system like in paintball.
What's this no sweater rule?
Starting 8 May, players may not wear sweaters, hoodies, or other thick/winter clothing on the field. This is to reduce heat casualties in the summer. Previously, we used to have players of all ages wear a thick winter jacket as a layer of protection from bb stings but then they'd pass out mid game because it was 90-100+ degrees outside. Plate carriers, arm pads, chest protectors, etc are still allowed however jackets designed to keep players warm in cold weather are not.
Is there an age limit?
Nope. Whatever the parent is comfortable with is good enough for us. Usually, players younger than about 10 don't seem to like the main field that much. Too much yelling and people running around plus they just got shot by a bb but we've also seen 10 year olds running around and having the time of their life so it really depends on the player. If you have someone who might not be ready for the main field, we have other smaller fields you can use with small groups of friends.
Can I sign for someone's child?
As long as the parents/legal guardians are ok with it. This is most common with private parties.
Can we pre-pay?
Not for public events. We're only set up for first come first serve, walk on. Private parties are the only pre-pay option.
What are the basic prices?
Weekend field admission is $20 and a basic gun rental package is $15 which includes a rifle, magazine, and 1000 bb's. If you need more bb's, you'll need to buy a bottle which can be around $20. Mask rentals are an additional $10.
Is full auto allowed?
During public play, full auto is not allowed on our Main Field. It's only allowed on our Side, Speed and Wasteland Fields IF all the players involved in the game agree to it.
How can I find out what items you have in the shop?
Don't call us on the phone. Join our Discord server. Our phone is run by our company mom, Andrea. She's a full time mom. You want to talk to an airsoft shop nerd. Those are in the Discord server.
You can also send us a message on Instagram or Facebook but we can't give out gun prices on those platforms.
Are you open during the week?
Typically, no. We may be open during certain holidays and school breaks but it's not regular. You'll need to follow our social media to know when we're open during the week.
I don't have social media, how can I stay up to date?
By getting social media. We'll put some information out on the website but this website isn't meant for real-time or specific updates. We post a lot to our Instagram, Discord and Facebook. If you're looking to get 100% of the specific changes and update information on this website, you're not going to get it.
What's a good starter/entry level airsoft gun?
Depending on a number of factors, there's nothing wrong with starting someone out with just using rental guns or (what we call) the classic WalMart/Big 5 special which is a lower tier electric rifle you can get new for under $100.
If you see this becomes something you or your player wants to do consistently and really get into, we recommend a company called G&G and their "Combat Machines" series of AEG (electric) M4 rifles. After tax, they can be around $200-220 depending on the specific model you want.
You can buy cheaper guns but like many things, you get what you pay for.
Our rental guns are G&G Combat Machines and we've been letting teenagers use them every weekend for 6-8 years. That's some serious quality.
NOTE: Usually, when you buy a new electric airsoft gun, it only comes with one magazine. It doesn't come with the battery or charger you'll need. Some companies will offer their own bundle packages but the battery chargers aren't always the best.
For an extra $60, we offer a bundle package of a battery, charger, lipo safe battery charging bag and an extra magazine.
Short answer: They don't need it.
HPA stands for "high pressured air." Instead of being directly electric or green gas powered, an HPA system uses a small air tank like a paintball marker. That air pressure is what fires the bb's. There's a BUNCH of YouTube videos that go over it but it gives the player more consistent pressure which can mean more accurate shots and the pressure can also be adjusted if they want to sight in the gun to shoot a specific distance.
Because it puts more pressure on the guns factory internals, you'll also need to upgrade the guns internals.
Imagine taking a regular commuter car and dropping a sports car engine into it. That's basically what happens.
Unless they want to get into competitions, there's really not much need for this upgrade other than it being "cool." Ask them for a specific reason for upgrading to this system.
If it's just a commuter car, do you REALLY need to put a turbo kit in it?
Pistol players are usually quick to go to HPA so they can get a magazine adapter that uses M4 magazines instead of having to buy a bunch of $40+ green gas pistol magazines which may leak or have reduced performance in colder weather but, again, you'll have to put money into upgrading the internals to handle the increased pressures. Usually, a good HPA pistol will have around $200-300+ worth of internal parts in it.
