I play only with modified stock class gear and I am a field owner. You idea won't work to attract new players. People want to play when THEy want to play, not when a field owner wants them to play. Most aren't going to wait for the one day that you happen to have stock class play. Also, people that don't know much about paintball, given a choice, will choose the field where the equipment is easier to use (semi-auto) and they can pretend they are Rambo or the like.
Don't get me wrong, personally I love stock class and pump play and feel that the paintball industry would probably be in better shape if semi autos had never been invented, but your idea still won't work.
