I would get permission first. Although it might be disrupting the public if it's in town or something.

if you can get inid say go for it..otherwise, no way in hell...you'd have to rent it out prolly...then youd have to clean it all up when your done....

i could see maybe a once a month thing..hold a tourny...bring scuba tanks for air and byob....entry fees goto paying for the time your there...dont forget to make a spare key if he gives you a key to lock-up if your gonna be there late....spare key means you can sneak in when hes not around...hehe

Whoever is in possession of the places will not want you shooting the walls up with paintballs, since there's always at least some potential to sell it. Either that or else they'll try to sell/rent it to you, which I'm guessing isn't up your alley.

If it is POSTED no tresspassing you can not.

If it is not, the owner or owners rep would have to tresspass you in front of a cop or in writting etc. but, you really do not want to go this way.

You could however find the property owner, post a million dollar bond (costs around $400 average for a year) and then rent the place ona per player basis....

We did this in a 4 story derelict building in New York to keep it from being a crack house. We eventually leased it outright then bought it.

Ya it all depends on who owns it. Me and my friends go dirtbiking at an old sodium sulphate factory all the time, the guy who guards the placed doesn't care because all's we do is stick to the dirt piles, he says prettymuch if you don't wreck anything you'll be fine. But since your going in the building its much more different.

no.

someone owns that land and if you get hurt on their land you could sue them. they don't want that so they wouldn't let you use it. i'm not saying you would sue them if you did get hurt, but the owner of the land isn't gonna believe you. it's just how liability works. plus, depending on where you live it may be illegal to fire a paintball gun outside of certain areas.

only way to do it would be illegally and hope you don't get kicked out. personally i wouldn't want to risk having my markers and equipment getting taken away for playing somewhere you're not allowed to.

Go for it. Sounds like fun. Don't listen to these guys. With great rewards comes great consequences. If you lose your marker, ability to pball (based on how the parents react), or someone gets hurt. OH WELL! You had fun doing it and things will work out somehow some day.

Breaking and entering
Trespassing
Distruction of public or private property

Not a very good idea.....

Although its vacant, its still breaking and entering, if your house door is wide open and some1 walks in, its the same as breaking and entering, just a different name that i cant remember

So unless you want to risk jail time, id say no

If you dont have permission....

Good luck. It would be cool if you could manage something paintballrep was talking about.

I know I've sure played at places where I'm not supposed to be.

lol, true.

if you have permission, it's legal. but if you just break in, you can get a nice slap in the face with jail time for breaking and entering, vandalism, and probably other things. you might even get sued.
