So this was on PbNation today and I decided Spec Ops should know this. I did not come up with this idea.
I am just reposting it from PBN for your cheapness. Heres a link to the thread if you want to read the whole thing.



"So I'm a cheap bugger... I prefer to pick paint up off the ground from an indoor field than buy it again..

For people who can buy paint for $20-25 a case, it's not worth it... but this indoor is FPO and runs $55 a case... you can use the paint you pickup off the ground...

So heres the guide...

Tools

2 towels (One to put paint on, one to rub paint with)
Garbage Can
Vacuum
Big Zip locker Bags
A lot of time...

Step 1.) Obtain the paintball ammunition from your local indoor paintball facility, with permission ofcourse...

Posted Image

Step 2.) Empty paintball ammunitions onto towel

Posted Image

Step 3.) Rub other towel ontop of said paintballs, the cotton grabbing fabque of the towel will grab excess gelatin shell fragments and cling onto them for later extraction

Posted Image

Step 4.) Activate Vacuum device zoooommmmggg

Posted Image

Step 5.) Watch as the gelatin disappears!

Posted Image

Step 6.) Zomg clean towel! (Note: You'll want to switch towels after a couple cases, they get soaked with paint pretty fast...)

Posted Image



Step 7.) Remove non-spherical paintball ammunitions from the pile and shells that are not apart of the paintballs...

Posted Image

Step 8.) Repeat Step 4-6 as many times as you feel necessary (Usually 2-3)

Posted Image

Step 9.) Utilize the Ziplocker storage containers to store the ammunition before final cleaning and sorting

Posted Image

Step 10.) Enjoy some Family guy... !

Posted Image

Step 11.) Do a last rubbin of the paintballs to get the little pits of shell and grease off... then sort by color/type of paint... White stuff = higher quality, better fill... Purple was the worst...

Oh... and Profit

Posted Image

Have fun Omg.

The bags weighed in at different weights...

3000 grams, 2700, 2660, 2300, and 1000 grams... total was 11660 grams and I figured the average ball is 3 grams so I got about 3800-4000 paintballs...

2 Cases for 3-4 hours of work..."


Again I didn't make this up! Someone on PBN did and I am reposting it here for everyone to see!

But the problem with paint off the ground is that, It has most likely has swelled up, just enought to jam up your gun, and also the shells could be to soft so they wont break.

yeah there was an indoor field around here that did that, and that paint was the only affordable paint you could buy, it was field paint only
