D14 can be such a daunting beast if you haven’t been to the field before. D14 can be found in a small North Texas town called Sanger with 40 acres to stretch your legs on. To make things even better, these are forty acres of some of the craziest land that has ever been played on in the state of Texas.
The thing that really hooks people to D14 is the variety of play styles that you can try out thanks to the dozens of buildings scattered throughout the area. Want to play some outdoor CQB? Well D14 has that as well as long range areas to try out that $1,000 DMR you’ve been working on so hard that your parents and loved ones are beginning to question your sanity. Even if you’re used to woods-ball or midrange combat then you’ll feel right at home at D14.
Anyone can say they “can reach 300 feet no problem” but that’s not something you openly gloat about at D14. You see, D14 has a 300 foot measured range with markers spread apart every fifty feet or so to show everyone what range you really have. Maybe it would be best to keep your overexerting self behaved, less you be shamed with the cold hard truth.
It’s no surprise that I love D14 for the fact that the field is so vast. The crowd of players that go each Saturday is large at about 150-300 players, and the never stagnant development to the obstacles on the playing area keeps them coming back every weekend. When I can go from thick wooded play to quick CQB action inside of some of the linked together buildings in the town area of D14 then I’d say that field is doing something right. Variety is the name of the game at D14, and it shows!
You can’t forget about all the Airsoft GI events that go down there either. BB Wars in Texas just wouldn’t feel the same if it wasn’t at D14 either as a cameraman or as a player. I’ve filmed every BB Wars event they’ve hosted in Texas since the first ever game took place and I’ve enjoined it every time. The combination of massive crowds as a well built field is a guarantee for a good time!
In conclusion, I’d like to state that D14 is one of the best Texas airsoft fields and in thanks to their support, I’ve grown quite a lot. Friendly and kind staff will welcome you. Players of all sorts of play styles will battle with you, and at the end of the day I’m sure you’ll be planning on how you can dominate the field with the friends you’ve made there next weekend. This isn’t your uncle’s backyard we’re talking about. If overturned cars, thousands of angles to watch out for, small cliff sides and thick brush to fight through sounds like your idea of a great time, then it’s waiting for you in Sanger, Texas.
