And not just once- it was our main (outlaw) field for several years. It's an old adjunct building to what was originally an Army Station, and later an Air Force Station. This place was well-separated from the main complex, and was part of an early pre-cold-war listening station.

Of course, when we played there, it'd long since been abandoned (the military left it to the locals in the late 70s) and heavily vandalized.

But, it had one huge central room with rows of concrete pillars (I'm guessing 100' x 120') and a dozen or more side rooms. (That had, in places, been bashed enough to pass through what had once been a solid wall.)

There were ladders to the roof, an outbuilding that had what was left of a big boiler, as well as a couple of extra storage rooms, there was what was left of an old mobile home (or possibly large Airstream type trailer) there were some air ducts big enough to walk through at a low crouch... It was dangerous with all the loose scrap metal and broken glass, but it was a blast to play in.

The whole place was surrounded by a chain-link fence, and enclosed... probably ten acres is all? Not huge, but in the summer time we'd have "full field" games with lots of sneaking. (In the winter we'd use just the interior.)

Unfortunately, we were barred from using the place after a couple of years, and a few years go, the city declared it an "attractive nuisance" and had it demolished.

Doc.
Where is this? It looks familiar...

A fun place would be a cube farm. While working at Sprint, I often imagined playing among the cubicles. Could have a cool scenario theme.

I used to play at an old car factory (Packard, I think) in Detroit. It was a hoot!

Was called Splatball city. From what I understand, something (an engine block?) fell through the ceiling of one of the fields.
Yeah! You and me both! I believe the quote was "don't shoot out of the windows because the neighbors will return fire with actual bullets!"

That is, word for word, what they told us in the safety briefing! Both very funny, and kinda frightening - maybe it a good thing they closed up...

We have an old Brewery back home which was shut down a couple decades ago. I look at it longingly every time I pass by. It would be perfect for paintball.

Well, did the mall thing last night. It was for rapid response/ active shooter training. There would be a could bad guys inside the several officers would have to respond and locate and engage the bad guys. Only got to do it for around an hour before I had to get back to real work. We played in the food court of a local mall after hours. Unfortunately, I'm not alllowed to post any pictures of the training. I do however have this, we unfortunately did have a civilian get caught in the cross fire:





I'm told that the cow has already contacted his lawyer...

we used Alpha Blacks and Procarbines for training (and my minimag). We were shooting Rufus Dawgs low impact rubber balls. God knows how many are in the kitchens of the resteraunts. It was really fun picking up all the rounds agter each go.

Oh, and Thunder Blank grenades are GLORIOUS in inclosed areas. That really made the good guys jump and pucker lol.
