Well land and/or buildings are expensive, and getting investors for properly setting up a airsoft is nill to none. A lot of people that play airsoft like it for the realistic guns but still like the idea of a paintball style game...ie running around like a chicken with its head cut off with with hoopers full of ammo or winding hi-caps in regards to airsoft. It is usually no big deal to a paintball field owner to rent out the field to a group of airsofters because the same general rules apply about eye protection and insurance.

Uh, Please clean up your message so it's more readable, If your question is "why are their paintball fields that don't allow airsoft?"

The short answer is Because the field owners don't want airsofters on their fields.

It's complicated, these are business owners who may be worried that their insurance policies don't cover airsoft thus don't want to risk the potential lawsuits if an airsoft injury occurs. It could be just a field owner being anti airsoft or believing that he won't make money from softers playing on their fields since we don't buy crates of ammo at stupid prices.

There are some people that allow airsofters on paintball fields, but it's generally a REALLY bad idea to do both at the same time

Yea... little 12 year old fucktards are unable to differentiate between paintballers on their field and airsofters on an adjacent field.
