I think the strongest point you made is the (extreme) example of a renter getting a headshot with good paint and clean equipment. I really think this was spot on.

The problem with paintball fields in my experience is that they often go out of business quickly and are focussed on maximizing short term profit at the expense of long term profit. Things like running water, business level facilities and qualified staff mean reducing short term profits.
I'm going to second this and reiterate a point.

Playing outlaw with some friends, it's okay if it's down and dirty. Paying a field fee and being forced to use substandard conditions can be a little frustrating. It also makes it harder to introduce people to the sport:

"hey I need to use the washroom"
"it's that bush over there..."

The small things can really make or break the experience. Thankfully we have some great fields around here.

Double FYI for paintball rules there should be no "offer" of surrender, its either mandatory surrender at X distance when guy is behind you or no surrender and you get shot in the booty. "offer" of surrender makes for some ridiculous and dangerous john woo tactics.
