I went to one place and one case of REC paint was 140$, this is pretty bad but, that was more than my spyder victor II.
How much is the paint in your area.

I get good quality paintballs practically at cost, Nelsplat at $30 a case.

Once the weather warms up I'll probably start using my 98C full auto to support advances again without having my marker ice over.

I got a good deal on some seconds (only thing wrong with them is the fill, looks like bird droppings) at $20 a case.

DraXxuS Midnight is $32 per case (I use this for the woods). Diablo Nightmare is $45 (Field paint).

Edit: I said Inferno, I meant Midnight.

Chronic, $50 a case.
That's all I use, unless I'm out of paint and we randomly decide to play (meaning I can't call my dealer).
Then I pick up Marbs from PEE SHOOTER's for also $50 a case.

When I started playing, I used crap paint and thought that the $30 a case I was paying was a lot.
Then one day I was at a game with a certain female player who owns Destiny and is married to an Ironman.
I was out of paint, and just gave a general call out to borrow a pod. She hands me a pod of this bright yellow stuff.
It was the greatest paint I had ever shot. Now I only shoot it. Or if I'm low on cash, the step down from it, ProBall.

It's funny how I look at paint now. I used to to think the $30/case stuff (retail) was good and $50/case was terribly expensive.
Now $50/case is normal and $75/case is acceptable. Though I think if someone ever wanted to charge me $140 a case I'd punch them in the face and take the paint. I know some fields up north have to do $100 a case because of the insane insurance up there, but $140???
My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.

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.

Skirmish USA, $100 a case if you buy less than 5 cases (I think). You get discounts as you buy more cases, so that's why you just find somebody to buy paint with.

They only made it $70 for Stalingrad. It is still the way it's always been.

About $35 for a case of Karnage Bite - it shoots about as good everything else and happens to be large bore.

I don't really shoot very much and a whole case usually goes bad before I get a chance to use it all up so I buy it by the bag.
