basically, become a "whore" of sorts. example, during the summer my friends gave me $20 to dive into a mud puddle, army crawl through it and barrel roll at the end of the the puddle. that $20 paid for a case of paint next week.

learn to spend your money. ask yourself what's important, what are the things you really need or are they a luxury? for example, it'd be nice to have a proper ramp board for my shocker, but it still has does have a ramping mode and it's legal for the series i play in and it works, so a new board would be a luxury for me. so instead of buying a new board i buy more paint to play.

if you don't use any old equipment, sell it! ****, find anything around the house you don't use anymore and sell it.

get a job. 'nuff said.

buy as much gear as you can used. the only brand new items in my gearbag are one of my masks, my pack and my tank and even then the pack and tank were christmas gifts (). everything else is stuff i bought used.

try and get the best deals as possible. for example, i ref at my local field and do a good job, so as a result i get discounts from the field.

get friends. most of the people i ball with are good friends so we're a tight group. if one of us needs something and someone has it we usually just let each other have stuff. or say if someone's **** is broken and they can't afford to fix it we'll let each other borrow extra equipment. a friend of mine lost his gun somehow and he played with borrowed guns half the season.

offer a service of some sort. i took pictures at a practice and they gave me a case of paint for the pictures. came back next week, practiced with them, took more pictures and they gave me another case.

I have the greatest solution ever. Get a job. You live with your parents so all of the money you make can go straight into paintball. If you work 10-20 hours part time somewhere, you should have more then enough.

They're a touch expensive to buy (I've seen some go for ~$400) but CCI Phantoms are dirt cheap to maintenance and a bag of 100 balls will fill the gun 10 times. They're also quite accurate in warmer climates. AND You don't need all the fancy paintball gear like harnesses or vests or remotelines. I've seen someone run around all day with a small satchel that they fill with a bag of ammo and CO2 Powerlets and that is the extent of their auxiliary gear.

i know everyone said this already but.

1) get a job.
2) get a pump
3) shoot some people who are shooting at you,
4) make fun of them for shooting 300+ balls at you while you shot them using 3 maybe 5 balls.....

qft. im pretty much voluntarily forced to play pump because i dont have the money to pay for 2 cases a day.

get yourself a cheap autococker (even a trilogy), a pump kit for $40, co2 tank for $20, and gravity hopper for $5. then get yourself a nice and comfortable mask, and dont worry about the price tag on that.

re:

if your marker has a programmable rof setting turn it down to 8 bps or less. pick up a small pocket hopper for a few dollars it will only hold 50 balls and is a shake and shoot hopper. another tip is look at your local field 09 big games and the big games listed down the page here on pbn. few fields have free games (end of the year big game in fl) or to raise money for people/toys. playing a 26 hour game or a castle game at emr or other large field is worth the road trip/cost. if you can get a woods ball team together for big games or a group you can save cash on paint at some fields when you pre pay for paint and buy more then one case.

^^^ OR.. Starve yourself.. my parents give me 5 bills a day and i just bring a breakfast bar and eat that at lunch when everyone is spending 3.75 on pizza and a snapple and 2.00 on cookies haha. Then throw on some charm and go to the table with the chill girls and be like does anyone have a quarter i have no money. Most girls will just give you a dollar instead =D. Oh and i save every last dollar from birthday and christmas to spend on paintball. GL

Hey man how old are you? Cause you could go around your subdivision and cut lawns and do yard work like that to earn some cash. You could also be a paper boy and stuff.

last method is to always start stealing crap. definitely not recommended as it may leave you injured/dead, but it's always a possibility if **** really goes south with your money.

listen to him, karl knows best
