I believe you should PM an actual "gun whore" instead of posting in the forum designed for non-paintball stuff.

But to end this thread quickly i'll tell you.

You buy guns/gear/other pb stuff
and turn around and resell it for more.

Or start trading for only guns in your favor until you finally get a gun you can make a good 1k off of and buy a new gun that you can sell for more even if the profit is only 20-50 bucks over a couple trades you have enough for an even better gun.

My brother is actually doing that as we speak lol I think he is talking to some guy on aim on his sidekick about a new alias he wants (lol just got his alias today in the mail and is buying another one to sell both of them) lol friggin nerd.

Just wait until you find good deals and opportunities and take advantage of them. Just keep trading and selling high, and buy low.

Find good deals. People getting out, damaged markers from noobs, or just damaged markers that you think you can fix or have parts around to fix.

Turn around and sell them for more. I remeber i bought a shocker body slightly damaged for 25 and a shocker frame with trigger for like 22. Turned around and sold them for like 120-130 i think.

I do this a little. I do more of an "equipment"whoring though.

I buy whole gearbags of stuff from people who have too much, or are quiting, and buy it at a lower price since i'm buying all of it.

Then I go and sell the things individually and turn a profit. My most recent one I paid $350 for the entire package, and I just finished selling it, my total sales were $500. So I made a $150 profit pretty easy.

If I were you I'd look at a lot of your local fields' forums, they normally have the best deals. Plus you save on shipping.

Dont buy something unless its a good deal.

Repeat for selling/trading.

When I still played paintball I'd always be looking to trade. I'd have any gun I own for trade at any time, and just trade up, and add up to $50. Or when I had cash, I'd buy 2 guns for $800, sell one for $600 and one for $400 etc

Gunwhoring isn't about making money. It's about having numerous guns. Some people take broken guns and fix them, then sell them for more than it cost them to make money(I've done it a couple times), but you don't usually make much money.

i bought an autococker for 90 sold it for 200. thats as good as it gets really. Gun whoring isnt worth trying to make a profit, i use it more to try new guns.

If you're anywhere near decent at bargaining, you can make a good profit, how do you think I played tournament ball when I was jobless?

Find good deals, lower your AC, profit from market value of your gun compared to what you acquired it for.

People scour the net for good deals on guns and then turn around and sell them elseware for considerably more than what they bought them for...

its really quite simple.
