Where do you guy buy your paint?

I can't find a good place to buy my paint, the paint from the local stores sucks and the shipping online is stupid expensive.

I just tested out some midnight paint from sports authority with my friend's marker. It's pretty good mid-grade paint, got it for $35 and every box I checked in the store was clean, no breaks or dimples.

Yeah I would recommend it if you're looking for some cheap paint, for $35 a case I was impressed.

ive shot about 6 cases of midnight the first couple of cases went great the rest was a blender in my loader on a pretty gentle paint setting alot of the guys here have the same results maybe its just super old but it seams to be very very brittle.

i shoot xball from sports authority its alot better than midnight but still not the greatest i never mentioned it in my previous post because it disapears from the shelves far too much as it is leaving me to shoot whatever else they have that breaks on contact 50% of the time.

I shot some midnight, had none of them break in barrel or chop in 1k shots with my ego7. The only complaint is that they don't always break on people but for $35 a case I'll bonus ball someone.

I'll try out some xball next time I go to sportsauthority, what is it a case? $40?

Hello, I am new to the forum and basically new to paintball, but some friends and I go out to Jim's creek to play when we can't play on base. We all use X-Ball from sports authority. None of us have had a break yet. Only thing I don't like is that it's all the same color, orange.

I'll need to pick some up next time. If you ever need another person to play, let me know.

I'm new to paintball but I'm interested in playing a lot of xball, and joining a team if the chance comes.
