Lightbulb What kind of Airsofter are you?

Hello fellow airsofters!

I'm helping some friends out who are trying to start an indoor airsoft facility in Vancouver. Please help by filling this 10-question multiple choice survey! Who knows, maybe if the feedback is good, you will see next airsoft site built the way YOU like it. By submitting feedback, you may even help improve local airsoft sites, even if you are not in Vancouver.

Keep in mind that this is aimed towards the Canadian crowd, so please use existing Canadian indoor sites for comparison when answering these questions.

Thank you!

Done. I should qualify my answer on indoor facilities. In Calgary we do not currently have an indoor facility. We did up until late spring and when it was open I was out weekly. I like outdoor just as much but will not attend paintball sites so that cuts down on my participation. Good luck with your project.

I filled it out.
Out of curiosity, why did you choose 330FPS as an option instead of 350? In southern Ontario, 350FPS seems to be the standard for indoors, and from what I've seen in other posts, other indoor places are the same way. Was it based on Japanese limits?

xtreme tactics in winnipeg by all means could be 300fps and nobody would complain
Honestly the indoor fps should be based on average engagement range, which at XT is most typically 5 feet

Thanks for your input!

No particular reason really. He said he wanted to see how many people would prefer to "man up" and take a field gun straight into CQB.

330 fps with .20 happens to be the limit for the local indoor games. It also translates to about 1.0 J, which agrees with this:

I think I can relate... I hate getting paint all over my gear.

We used to play indoor private games with wolfpack MB, "terror tuesdays" officially 400fps limit, but I know for a fact some of their guns were 500+ lol
Nobody had any complaints anyway, but I definitely wouldn't allow outsiders in on the games.

Also, safety? cleanliness of facility? LOL
The most dangerous fields are often the best! CFB rivers was ridiculously dangerous but one of the best fields for CQB. Real CQB too, building to building, with REAL buildings, none of this indoor maze crap.

one of the most important elements for indoor facilities is the ability to change the set up regularly... meaning WEEKLY

the most common complaint with regulars is " boredom" if you can not build a solid core of regular players .. you are doomed.

you keep people coming back with new setups and novel scenarios.

I've been running an indoor facility since 2005 .. and the only reason I am still around is that the setup is never the same twice.

Just out of curiosity..CFB Rivers, is that an actual CFB base? The reason I ask is I'm located at CFB Gagetown and would like to know if we could use their CQB facilities to play

Abandoned ww2 base bought and semi converted to a hog plant. Owner died of being a retard, so we have no idea who to contact.
Despite complying to wh&s safety standards for his workers, he got up on a roof with no safety equipment, fell off and died.

Good to know. I will pass that on. The people behind this are going to keep the covers "modular" so that it can be easily adapted and changed.

Very important for an indoor field, size and multi-level. Unless it's a couple if buddies just muckin' around, 10,000 square feet starts to feel like a garage quickly.

Also what Brian said, change it regularly.

Rivers was deactivated at the start of the 70s.
