Once players have gathered their rental equipment and paintballs at Extreme Rage Paintball Park of Fort Meyers, things get intense. The outdoor field provides the setting as globs of paint fly through the air and strike players while they duck and roll behind obstacles in competitions for supremacy.
Situated on roughly 120 acres of battle-ready landscape, Köhn Sports Paintball Park is one of the largest paintball and air-soft parks in West Central Florida. A rousing excursion for novices and experts alike, today's paintball package grants you park entry (a $15 value), 500 rounds of paint (a $15 value), paintball gun rental (a $10 value), and all other necessary rental gear (a $15 value). Suit up with a facemask, chest protector, three-pod paint-carrying case, and nitrogen-gas air tank, and round up friends to duck and dodge a flurry of pigmentation before unleashing compressed-air torment upon a combatant. Köhn Sports Paintball Park is open on Saturdays and Sundays, and reservations are needed during the week.
The sounds of crunching leaves break the otherwise still air, causing a pair of laser-tag teammates to slow their breathing and crouch down low. One of them puts a finger to her lips and peers over a fallen log, catching sight of an opponent before carefully aiming her laser gun in his direction. The sensors strapped to his head detect the hit, disengaging his gear for up to three seconds and rendering him unable to retaliate. This is a common scene at Mission Quest Adventures, where players cavort in an outdoor arena while clutching weapons loaded with laser beams. Adrenaline levels spike as warriors dive under bushes and dodge behind trees, aiming for victory in organized games such as capture the flag, last person standing, and pantomimed bowling.
The NRA-certified instructors teach at indoor and outdoor ranges.
Depending on the class, shooters use different calibers of handguns, such as .22, .380, 9 millimeter, 40cal, 45ACP, and a .38 revolver.
Before becoming state- and NRA-certified firearms instructors, each Elite Tactical Training team member worked in law enforcement or the US Army. They draw from these experiences to teach safety during one-on-one, group, and women's-only classes that incorporate scenarios. To deal with each simulated situation, the experts teach their clients??who range from civilians to law-enforcement officers??to select a suitable caliber, safely handle their chosen firearm, and practice self-defense techniques.
