Dave got a lot of "shit" when he opened his field way back in 2010 or so.
A lot of the Austin players claimed "we don't need another field in the area", "it's just more competition for player turn out in the area".
He got shit like, "his field is unsafe", "has no rules" He was even "sued" when one of these aggressive nay-sayers got a chipped tooth.
Which if you are into the Airsoft Hobby, KNOW that this IS a POSSIBLE eventuality if you don't cover your full face.
Anyhow, over a decade later CTAF is STILL going strong and I SOOOO like that MANY Veterans and current Soldiers use the field.
