"The War Zone": New 18-acre field in Niagara Falls, NY

"The War Zone" is Western NY's latest and greatest airsoft field! Owned and operated by The War Store, The War Zone is 18 acres in size and has an urban/industrial/post-apocalyptic feel, befitting its origin as an old junkyard. The War Zone is fully insured and open to approved players aged 12 and up.

Rentals are available for our Canadian friends.

The War Zone's first game will be held on Sunday, 10/10/10, and will likely host games every Sunday thereafter, weather permitting. Occasionally, Saturday games will also be held.

Photos of The War Zone can be found here: http://www.thewarzoneairsoft.com/photos.html

Rules for The War Zone can be found here: http://www.thewarzoneairsoft.com/rules.html

Waiver for The War Zone can be found here: http://www.thewarzoneairsoft.com/waiver.html

Since we opened our field early last month, The War Zone has been a huge success and well received by local players. Every skirmish has had 45-55 players show up each day. We generally design fairly complex skirmishes that change each time, and we spend alot of time building props to enhance the games. The field is 18 acres but we are currently using only a bit more than half that. The play area will be expanded by Spring to encompass the whole property.

This past Sunday the weather was quite chilly, only 42 degrees F, so attendance was a bit lower, with 34 players. Still, we had a great time, and I got to try out my new gun camera that came in the mail just a few days earlier.

The skirmish, as always, lasted six hours or so. I started the day with the cam mounted on my gun, but after an hour or so I had a gun malfunction, so I put it away and just carried the cam around for the rest of the day. I tried to give a good tour of the field while following the action as well.

I ended up shooting just under two hours of footage total. I spend most of yesterday editing them and adding some text at strategic points. I split it up across eight Youtube videos, which I posted on our Youtube channel. The links are posted below. I hope you enjoy watching them.

Since Canadians cannot bring their airsoft toys across the border it might be difficult for us to play at your US field. If money was no object I guess we can buy AEGs/GBBs in the US and store them there but that seems to be such a high cost to play a few times in a year. Or perhaps you have rentals for use on game day?

I'm not sure why you are telling us about your field since we can't effectively play there. Am I missing something?

it just involves the CBSA, paperwork, time, and a tamper proof sticker

I have heard chatter about this process but given how the CBSA interprets rules & regulations do you actually think this is a proven way to get airsoft guns across the border? Do you have some specific cases where a Canadian was able to successfully employ this approach?

there are members of the community which attend Operation pine plains on a yearly basis which is in new york, crossing back and forth with their guns.

It is possible to take your airsoft guns safely and legally over the border. You need to have legally purchased them in Canada and be have receipts for each gun. Stop at the CBSA office prior to crossing the border and tell them what you're doing. They will give you a form to fill out, confirm the equipment and give you paperwork to take with you. On return you declare your gear and provide the paperwork with your passport.
I have successfully done this on 2 separate occasions. The initial stop took me about 20 minutes. Crossing back both times I did not get pulled over or searched.
Last trip was just over a week ago.

i've heard that they also stick a tamper proof sticker inside your magwell
or in the case of your gun having a individual serial number they record that

but it all boils down to

time, cbsa office,and paperwork

They recorded the serial numbers on my gear. Nothing was stuck to any of my gear. Yes it takes time, but the ability to play at fields like Oklahoma D-Day, Fulda Gap, etc make the time worth it to me.

I did it last year for OPP with zero problems, its a little green card and a sticker (placed pretty much anywhere you want it). Takes no more than 20 minutes if they aren't too busy.
