Desert Fox – Task Enforcement Training Facility
February 14, 2012
On February 9th, 2012, I had a chance to check out the new Desert Fox CQB field located in Gardena, California. Task Enforcement Training Facility is an indoor facility specifically designed for law enforcement personnel, SWAT operators, VIP protections, etc, to provide them with real world environment setting for training.
At Task Enforcement Training Facility, there are 12,000 square feet of training ground for law enforcement agencies and airsofters to train/use. There are different rooms which simulate different settings. There are rooms that simulate a classroom, a restaurant, an office, a living room, a bedroom, etc, and they are connected with hallways and corridors. There are also catwalks above all the rooms for instructors to critique trainees. For airsoft, the catwalks provide a cool and unique perspective on the game.
One of the coolest things about Task Enforcement Training Facility is the availability of Simunitions. As you might not be aware, Simunition is what law enforcement use to train force on force. Since Simunition uses real firearms (with a barrel modification), it is virtually the same as real firearms without the “death” effect. That is the reason why law enforcement love using Simunition when doing force on force training.
Task Enforcement is available for airsoft use on Sundays only. The official hours of operation are 10am to 10pm. However, the facility is available for private events (private games, birthday parties, etc) from 9am to 1pm. So if you would like to reserve for your private events, contact Desert Fox immediately.
The admission price is $25 per person. I know it seems to be a little bit high, but it is a legitimate CQB training facility and it is worth every single dime. To ensure and maximize everyone’s safety, there is a 350 FPS limit at Task Enforcement. Since the field is only about 12,000 square feet; in my opinion 10 on 10 is probably the maximum number of players before the field gets over crowed.
According to Jet (Desert Fox Field Owner), if there are a lot of people, there will be a waiting area. Once the game has ended, new players will be inserted into the field while the older players are extracted. Spectators can observe the game on the catwalk, with mandatory eye protection on.
March 4th 2012 is the grand opening of this new awesome CQB field. For all you Southern California airsofters, the field is located in 120 West 155th Street, Gardena 90247. Get to the field as early as possible because it is going to be crowed on the opening day. To maximize your fun at Task Enforcement, make sure you have a few of your buddies, or your team, with you. This field will definitely require teamwork between you and your team/buddies. So airsofters, mark your calendars, and check out the new Gardena Desert Fox CQB field on March 4th, 2012!
