I used the super-handy quick-change spring feature on the Elite Force M4's gearbox to quickly drop in an M120 spring to bump up the FPS to just under 400 FPS with a .20g BB. I had been told by a friend ahead of time that the field we were going to check out was mainly outdoors, but did have a building on it which is said to be an abandoned Air Force research facility, used by our military back in the day to do military stuff.

I thought I'd show you a few pictures of the field I played on and what I'd consider to be a fairly ideal environment for the Elite Force M4. Remember, I did upgrade the spring because the field has some larger, open areas which make for longer engagements.
This is always a fun situation: You're outside in the bright sunlight, which prevents you from seeing in open, but dark doorways leading into the building. The enemy inside the building, looking at you from that darkness has a definite upper hand.
I chose the CQB-length gun because I knew there might be some close-quarter battles inside the building and I didn't want to have to deal with a longer rifle inside that could very well become a cumbersome problem when battling in those small rooms & hallways. The Elite Force M4 CQB worked out perfectly for me because of its compact body.
Airsoft green gas pistol on you to transition to when you and a bad guy get within the minimum engagement distance, which varies by field. Some of the better fields will require you to carry a pistol. Just thought I'd mention that.
