secure a piece of land that is both large enough and able to be shielded from public view. It should also be far away from wandering eyes so that they dont get shot out. other than that, you might want to look into insurance if you intend on making this a public field. Other than that, just get some local high school kids in shop class to build you barricades and obstacles and you can pay them $10/ hour, or you can get some of your buddies to do it (if they have the knowledge) and pay them in beer.

The way you spell sound like you are french.

Alors, avant de partir un terrain, commence par venir jouer avec les autres et voir ce que ça prend. Ensuite tu verras si ton projet est faisable. Oh et ça prend 18 ans minimum pour jouer.

Don't forget to factor in insurance, redevelopment, and zoning.

It's actually quite hard to make a business out of a field but go for it if you've got a good business plan and have the capital and risk tolerance for it then go for it. It would be appreciated but don't forget about your personal time and personal finances.

And just for a backup I would also suggest making it a paintball field as the market is much bigger and it will allow you to cater to the small airsoft community while still making a respectable income

In that case you could just use a farm as long as it’s far enough away from town that people won't see you. I used to play paintball at a buddy’s farm all the time and besides the fact that air soft is a bit more realistic as long as its your property or you have permission to be there the cops wont take to much care if your responsible.

How old are you?

This isn't to belittle you, but if you're a minor, be aware that you are gambling your family's finanial seurity by opening a field.

Don't forget though that Canada is becoming all "lawsuit this, restraining order that" much like the US. If you've got a couple people you know well who won't sue you for every little thing then go for it.

Also WARN LAW ENFORCEMENT BEFORE YOU PLAY! It's important that they know what you're going to be doing, although if people do complain and call in they must go and check it out (or something to that effect) so be warned of that.

I don't really condone that though (playing on a farm or w/e), but I guess you gotta make due with what you've got.

I would just like to touch on the subject of insurance for a moment. In short its actually alot more complicated than one would think as there are only a small tiny handful of companies in Canada that would even offer to provide coverage for this type of thing. In short once you source out the company and apply to them for coverage they may still decline you if they have no interest in such a thing. If you are approved however the cost is extremely expensive per year.
