How do we get better!

Hi everyone,

Me and my team love paintball but it is expensive. Does anyone have any tips on how to make the best out of a day of paintball?

I'm open to any ideas.

Thanks,
Maksymilian

Practice, drills, condition. Yes, paintball I expensive, but if you play every weekend, talk to your local shop about getting a discount on paint (basically sponsor the team). It helps even if it is just a few bucks off per case. You guys can also do drills with limited amounts of paint.

^ what he said. Paintball is expensive because the consumables are expensive. If you can find any way to save on paint, do it. Alter drills to save on paint, indoor places that allow reballs maybe if that's possible? Its tough but I think looking into saving on consumables is the way to go.

Was your answer to spend that day shopping for pumps?


Seriously, this "buy a pump" talk is getting old.

Just get out there and play honestly. Keep shooting used mid-price range guns, stay away from the newest toys, and save your $$$ for paint. Play, play, play.

There are plenty of drills that require little to no paint as well, and can even be done at home. Little things like practicing getting your gun up and shooting off the break flawlessly, switching hands to get used to shooting with either hand, all sorts of fun stuff.
