Okay I think we are talking about different things here. I was trying to say those prices are rediculous. I'm not sure what you are saying is low, the prices or your estimate of what they are.

The prices are not ridiculous. Simple economics. Do you know where/what OC is? Its a resort town. The paintball field is on RT 50 which is the major artery into OC. The property the field is on is leased and its PRIME REAL ESTATE. Look up prices for real estate in OC and then maybe you will comprehend the prices. Do you play golf where you live? If you do I'm sure most courses charge about $35-45 for a round of golf. In OC (a resort town) a round of golf is $100-$175 a round. Hotels in your area cost $60-80 a night. In OC they cost $150-400 a night. Its all about location.

If OC paintball charged $25-35 a case like other paintball fields it would go belly up in one month. The monthly lease a lone for the field costs more than most places pay in a full year.


Just food for thought.....Now are the prices ridiculous or about right?

I'd still say that those prices are pretty rediculous. I'd pay half as much for better paint pretty much anywhere else. I understand that costs are higher in OC, but killing people on paint prices is not the way to bring in more customers.

He has ZERO problems making tourists pay those rates. I guess you either didn't comprehend what I wrote about other examples or you didn't read it at all. He charges "walk ons" with no equipment like $50-60. They get a mask, a marker, a CO2 tank, and 500 paintballs for that price and he STAYS busy.

I can get a hotel(nice one too) in my town for $45 a night. That SAME exact room in OC is $150. Same beds, same linens.

I can also play golf in my town for $30 a round, that SAME round of gold in OC is $125. Same grass, same bunkers.

I also pay $2 for a beer at my local bar, yet I have to pay $6 for a beer in OC for the same thing. Do you see how all of this works in a resort town now? Again its very simple economics.

His monthly lease for the prime real estate property he uses is $2500 a month. That's just the lease payment, no other expenses. If he were to charge $35 a case paint he would go out of business in 3 months or less.

Would you prefer he charge $30 for air and lower his paint? Or perhaps charge $50 field fee and lower his paint?


One last thing for you to help you understand these so called "high paint prices". I'm going on a family vacation next month to a different resort town. I'm going to have fun, relax, and enjoy myself. If the restaurant I go to sells Mountain Dew for $6 a can I'm buying because I'm on vacation and I'm not caring about the little things. If the beer of my choice sells for $11 a bottle in this town I will still buy it because I'm enjoying myself. This is called TOURISM.

I understand what you are saying. I don't want to get into an arguement about how we choose to spend our money on vacations. I am not sure why you are so quick to jump in and defend someone else's paint prices, but that's your decision. Bottom line, for me, it's hard to justify spending $100 or more to play for the day at a small field with no major event going on. I guess I'll make the drive up to OXCC.

I'm only quick to jump in because I get tired of hearing people complain its too expensive when its not. You have to pay bills and in order to pay bills you charge accordingly. He caters to a certain clientele, unfortunately you AND me are not his clientele. Its 95% tourist based. I have never played there and never will for the same reasons you state, its expensive. All I'm saying is that his costs are justified though.

chad let me know if you want to play at oc sometime. it isnt that expensive if he knows you and knows ur not a tourist. he obviously has to charge tourist those prices to stay afloat but if you talk to mark he will work with you.

^^ even if you are a new player im almost positive there arent any cases there for 100$. i was just talking to the owner about how paint prices have gone down now that their made out of organic materials.. two weeks ago. its cheaper than red-dog said, im pretty sure he hasnt been to the field since it re-opend Call. and find out the real prices before you two get in a big stink over some made up paint prices to begin with

not shady at all. if you know someone that owns any business they will more than likely give u a discount. im sure if you go there and tell him you play tournament paintball and arent used to paying crazy paint prices he may hook you up too. he can tell just by talking to someone if they are a rec player etc.

yeah he hooked me up when i went. def a cool guy. i think he mainly just charges the high prices to tourists that come down without any gear cuz he's gotta make his money. he was very fair.
