It depends what you play like woods or airball but some places are more expensive than others to play at

if you buy crap equipment, it will break and you will most likely get something different to replace it. get good equipment to start off on, it will eventually save you money in the long run

Or you will just keep buying more good equipment because you really want that new thing coming out.

True. Pump is a very legit way of saving money, especially if you play rec. 0.5-1 bag of paint, 1 fill

Paintball is a hobby. Like all hobbies, it is a LUXURY. The unfortnate thing about luxuries is that you need to be able to afford to pay for it in order for it to be worth your time.

If you can't afford a luxury item/hobby that means alot to you, do what successful people do and find a way to make it happen. It is said that the most powerful person in the world is the one that is goal-oriented, and WANTS to reach that goal more than anybody else. Make your goal to be able to afford paintball, and it will happen.

Look at your comment. Back to mine. Back to yours NOW BACK TO MINE. Sadly, it isn't mine. But if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate crap it could LOOK like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through the comments, finding the ones that your comment could look like. Back at mine, what is it? It's a highly effective counter-troll. Look again, MY COMMENT IS NOW DIAMONDS.

I had to stop playing when I was younger cause my parents couldn't afford paying. Now that I'm older I got back into the game. It's expensive but it's something that I enjoy doing. I always find a way to come up with extra cash to paintball.

Agreed. Turn your ramping off and shoot semi. Using a pistol helps a lot, might even improve your game.
