Mind you its an outdoor field that's barely had any changes in a decade (though they paved rhe driveway recently) and doubles as a paintball field. Gameplay is shitty as hell as of late after milsig's acquisition of the field and it's pretty much the ONLY field available at all, so they've got a bit of a monopoly going on...
Compared to you guys in the GTA, you've got a number of GOOD indoor and outdoor fields for pretty much the same price... with people who can actually run a decent game.
So yeah... bit of a rant.
Bit back on topic... you're really better off getting a cheap AEG for yourself and borrowing a couple of high caps for you buddy. First game, keep it simple. Don't recommend slapping a bunch of gear they're not used to on them. Most noobs run around with an AEG and a high cap and it works pretty well. BA's are fun for plinking but unless you upgrade them, they're fairly useless on the field, especially with the all the ignore MED full auto spray and pray attitude I've seen at that field lately...
HAHA, that's exactly the thought for me! They made it into a monopoly, being just a bit cheaper than ambush (not sure if ambush allow outside BBs), if yes, then I would just go to ambush since its just a few streets away from my house, thus reducing my gas usage. I still find it funny that people don't wear head protection in panther and only expose their head then expecting people not to shoot them in the face.
Really wish there is a field here that doesn't get paint all over my stuff, it's annoying sharing with paintball stuff, but that's how it is, and it's gonna stay probably. Yeah, I'm just gonna buy a IWI Tar-21 elite with some mid-cap mags from someone. Its about 130 bucks more than that stupid bolt sniper, but I'm sure he can have fun with this one...I just thought to myself last night..I work pretty hard, why not get something nice..just add it to my own collection..Although I have to disable the EBB function of that gun..(I always wanted a tar-21, but it seems that EBB is the best one)

Yeah, I think I'm scraping the idea...:wink: it will become too expensive. I might get it for my dad to shoot targets at home. We never have the time to go to the shooting range to let off steam cause of our work times.

Instead of Panther, have you tried Ambush?
I might try there if they allow our own BB..I don't know how there fields and games are..I go to panther alot because I started off playing paintball there. Then I noticed they were doing airsoft, switched in a heart beat.
