Question about buying paintballs
Posted 01 August 2006 - 04:31 PM
Lets say that you pay 30$ for 500 balls and that at the end you have 150 balls left, what do you do with them? Do they let you bring them back home and come back with them a week later or what?
I am just wondering because I will probaly go for my first paintball game next week and this question has been bothering me for a few days now.

other solution (this being a bit of a underhanded route) would be to buy a case of the exact same paint the feild uses and only buy the bare minimum at the feild. this shows you did indeed purchase the feild paint and for all inquirative purposes you continue shooting the feild paint through the entire day
however if the bare min is 500 and you shoot less than per day of pb your kinda SOL

I think the thing behind not bringing the feild paint back to the feild the next time you play is kind of the same if you are renting, some people may not know hot to properly store paint and this can have a drastic affect on the quality, so cheap paint is the same as paint not stored properly, and will have the same affect in the rental markers.
Plus you will most likely use more than 500 balls. Alot of feilds also will sell paint in smaller increments too, like 100 -200 balls.

They may claim that, but the real reason they won't let you bring your own paint: Paint sales is where they make most of their money.
Every field but one (that I've been to) has allowed me to bring it back at a later date.
