Where in the world?
Hi guys, been a while. My dreams of opening a feild locally pretty much went down the drain due to lack of funding. Same old story, I'm sure.
But now I have started to pick plans back up. I ship to basic July 12. I will be gone 4 years, but when I get out I will have the college and training to get a 6 digit job. So, along with my saving from the military and possibly dvd sales, I wanted to start my own feild.
I was poking around in the stickies and stuff and it looks like the economy side of paintball is pretty well crapass. At least in the U.S.... So, where (overseas) is paintball a popular sport? Or is there still a chance that I may make some profit in the U.S.? Even if my feild only pulled in like 20k a year, I would be happy. Maybe less/year just because I love the sport and want to help promote it.
I am just realizing that this is why paintball isn't growing. The cost of playing is high to begin with, and then shopowners/feild operators aren't making enough profit to live on.
Anyways, do you guys have any advice?
