Hmm...I typically spend around $30 a day on paintball. Buy a bag of paint, play mech semi, and $20 for entry and air. That's an extreme budget-baller strategy, though. If I'm really rocking on semi I'll shoot 750-1000 rounds a day, maybe more if there are a lot of games. Having guns that can shoot fast kinda makes your trigger finger itch...

Spend as much as you can afford to spend. If your budget is lower, buy a bag of paint. If you can comfortable afford two cases, go for it. Think of how much you're making (allowance, job, mowing the lawn, whatever) and consider your expenses. Paintball, girls, food, video games, etc. Establish percentages based on your own priorities. If paintball is your number one priority, perhaps give it 45% of your budget. Multiply your monthly income by .45, then divide by 4 (weeks in the month) and that is how much you can spend on a day of paintball.

I usually buy seconds (35.00/case) + 10.00 for entry each time. The case would generally last me a month depending on how I shot so 75.00 a month so roughly 20.00 a day.

For me on a typical weekend i pay $15 for entry and air plus $35 a case for paint so about $50 times per go and sometimes i will go every weekend in the month but usually about twice so its about $100-$200 a month.

$90 on an expensive day. This includes admission 2000 paintballs and all day air refills. But this really depends on the day in which you go and their specials.

at my field, I vary it up but its usually 50 for a case, entry, and air. Its the field you see in most of egoballas' videos. and usually I use about 2 - 3 pods a game so I typically have about a bag left so over time those bags I save turn into cases. so pretty much 50 a weekend, sometimes more on occasion

7.50 for entry and 5.00 on air is pretty good but the paint is where they get ya. where I go it's 12 fee and 10 for air but we can bring our own paint for 10.00 fee thankfully

most i spend is 40. playing once a month is the best because you wait for it the most, and it is the most rewarding
