What a terrible idea.
There might be, but that isn't what's going on here. The story talks about two different things going on in one place; the use of Simunitions (Simunition Non-Lethal Training Ammunition Training for the real world Conversion Kits Protective Equipment Spare Parts Fx Marking Cartridges Securiblank Cartridges) in actual firearms (which is an established training technique) and the rental of airsoft guns for separate activities.

There was an old Titan 3 missile silo for sale near Sturgis, that once all the water was pumped out, would be an awesome place to play. There would need to be a lot of work to make the 3 silos more useful, but it would be cool.

-We talked about that a couple of times over on the Guild, in the same kind of "wouldn't that be cool" sort of discussion.

The problem is, as you can see from the map, it's mostly tunnel. Yeah, there's some large rooms (though they're not as big as you might think) but getting from one big room to another is at best either a single chokepoint (a doorway) or at worst, a hundred-yard-long tunnel.

It'd be one thing if the tunnel were like 50 or 60 feet wide at least, but from most of the pictures shown online, they're at most 12 feet wide, some clearly less than that. It'd be like playing ball in a culvert.

The actual silos are also basically big holes- the accessways are usually towards the ceiling. You'd either need to build a bunch of catwalks, or whole floors, or whatever.

Now yeah, if you had unlimited cash, it's be cool to fill one of those silos with like eight or ten floors, where each floor is connected by firepoles, slides, ramps and ladders (plus red warning beacons, emergency klaxons that go off at random times, and an announcer that says "You now have fourteen minutes to reach minimum safe distance!" periodically... )

But really, as cool as a silo complex would be, it'd be a poor paintball field. Those old civil war forts would be way cooler.

The missile silo was just a "thought" There are many other cooler places to play... One of the guys posted some old factory (I think) that has been turned into a field... Someplace in Europe (Yes, I am being lazy and not looking for the thread)

I work in an underground hard rock gold mine. Needless to say I think about playing there all the freakin time. Caplamps and all that would be awesome. Lots of walking uphill for one team at least. If there was equipment in the haul roads and just random stuff everywhere it would be a pretty sweet place to play.

Another place I think about playing would be Chernobyl....... Without the radiation of course. If there was no radiation and it was just left the way it is now would be a friggin awesome place to play.

Locally where I'd love to play:
- Old Solo cup factory, big rooms, machinery to hide behind, sitting vacant while they wait to knock it down for a Wegmans
- The nearby mall is going to be knocked down next year to make way for an open air concept. I'd love to play in the mall, or even just one of the big anchor store spaces.
- There's also an old medical complex of some kind, might be an abandoned rehab facility or something, lots of medium-size buildings and space in between.

Well... would a Hostess bakery work?

I just learned of a field here in the ATL that used to be a 2-story hotel! I wanna try it!

[LINK 001]
[LINK 002] Lame video, but does show the fields.
[LINK 003]

And, NO, I don't work for these guys - have not even played there yet. But I think my next outing will be at Safety Wolf (if they are still open).
