Sounds awesome! Where is this magical field?

If they thought it would be profitable, they would already be doing it

They could easily make it profitable, but I don't think it would produce the volume of sales they would want to delve into another niche. Would be great exposure to the sport of paintball though. Could definitely see some serious sponsorship dollars being thrown around as well. Might drive some of the little guys out as well..

Alot of kids need attitude adjustments. This is just paintball, people need to relax and enjoy the game. When i first started playing in 2000 everyone was cool with each other and the community was very helpful. Now its **** you you carry an ego or tippmann or whatever...I hate hate hateee when people are judging other by their equiptment.
maybe at your field...

do they atleast give you a bottle of KY to go with it while their pounding you in the ***? I havn't seen paint prices in my area like that since 2002

average for Western NY(between Syracuse and Buffalo) is about $55-60/case

After looking at all sorts of things, I realized one thing.

I'm ****ing lucky with my field.

$48 a minimum for a case, $50 for the next step up, $60, then $65, then $68. Air is $8, and there's no entry fee, just field paint and air.

Paintball isnt big because its never been publicized. No one knows xball and other events even exists. cant get new players if no one knows whats out there and how addicting the sport really is.
