Holy Smokes you guys are getting done dirty if your paying anything more than 75 a case for premium......shoot, come to think of it for more than a hundred bucks a case I better get a massage .... a case of beer...something Geez_O!


No no, that $120 is for Hotbox. I don't have the option of anything better, and I wouldn't want anything worse unless it was like $10/case.

Sometimes I use Monsterballs because I can shoot fast with my Shocker and once somebody is hit with 10 bouncers they call themselves out anyway...

That's why I rarely go over a bag, maybe a bag and a half in an 8-hour day of play. Should be less if I decide to use my pump. Although probably more if I use my Cyborg.

That's just regular southern Ontario pricing. There's only one field I know of that's significantly cheaper, but I don't know if they're still in business or not. And even if they are, it's only a single Airball field (Xball I think). I wouldn't really want to play there for more than a couple of hours with only one field.

It's quite common around here actually (neighbouring towns). However, in my town, it is literally "outlaw," as in it's against town bylaws to fire anything within city limits, which includes real firearms, paintball markers, airsoft guns, even bows. Besides, out of all of us, we all live in purely residential neighbourhoods with yards no longer than 30 feet or so. And if we're going to drive out of town, there's only 4-5 of us who would be playing anyway, and we haven't got a chronograph yet. And it's not totally legal to outlaw on federal/province land as far as I know, unless you're pretty far out from any "structure" (which includes roads and power lines).

I feel really bad for you guys... I am used to paying MAX 60 bucks a case ANYWHERE I go around here... usually I have marbs for about 45 a case or Premium at 35 a case... If it was the 100 you guys are talking I sure would be getting in the pump gun time...

... 100 bucks, I couldn't imagine paying that price...

That's why I always bite my tongue and refrain from screaming at someone whenever I see a person complaining about paying $60-70/case. I would love that kind of pricing. Either way, it's still paintball. But spending less on it is better if I can... so it really gets me ticked when someone complains that they pay "so much" when it's only half of what I do :dry:.

Holy Crap ! Some of those prices are insane. A case of good decent paint around here is $40.00. You can get a case of cheaper paint for $30.00 but it's too crappy to use. Life's too short to shoot crappy paint. lol. My BT cost $107.00 brand new. It's sad that some places charge more for a case of paint than what a new marker cost. lol.

Paintball Paradise: $170 a case.

You guys are getting ripped off. I shared paint at that one place. My regular place has a case for 70 bucks, so you guys that get it for less are REALLY lucky.


Thanks for the info, the cheapest I have ever seen was online paint for 20 bucks. I thought that was amazing.


It's the cost of living in Canada. 120$/case here

Everywhere here is FPO, but the Kick'n Paint at the crappy field is 60 bucks, but it always breaks in barrel so I can't shoot it, so I go to the other field where paint is 70 bucks for RPS stingers... 40 dollars over price, oh well.

At gander mountain I can get paint to test my gun with (marbs) for 80 bucks, but most of the time I can bargain it down to 70. The guys behind the counter don't care, all I have to tell them is it was listed for 70

The 2 of the fields in the area are $65 for the cheap stuff, and the other field is $45 a case.

I know were all for helping local fields and a lot of us are stuck to fpo but action village has some good deals on paint. I know the dangers of ups,fedex,dhl and paint but its no 120 or higher.
