A few of the owners in the past have stated they would give a serious potential owner some personal face time to talk business and I'm sure many other people would also agree it you approached them about it. Every time the subject is breached the same suggestion is made, plan a trip around the country (maybe even Canada ) to a number of fields, see what it is they do and find out why they do those things. It might take a few weeks, or a few different trips, and a few thousand dollars to accomplish. If you don't have the time and money to do that, congratulations you just took the easy way to learn you don't have the time or money to open a field.

Why is the point of your post? What does it have to do with the topic?
its the 8th I'm going to open a paintball thread in the last two weeks. only on can you "become a successful field operator" by reading internet forums.

sure there is great advice to be had by posting on here, but its nothing that hasn't been said before or isn't already on page 1.

I want to open a business, but here tell me exactly how to do everything because I have no ability to learn or figure something out on my own...

Seriously, how do I get permits? (SBA, local city government.)

How do I get insurance? Not an insurance salesmen (not a search on pbnation regarding insurance in the field subsection).

How do I get people to sponsor my business? ROFL

Where do I get custom paintballs?
My feedback is 100%
