So how does everyone pay for paintball

Ive been playing for about 4 years now and im just wondering how everyone pays for paintball. I pay for almost all my stuff except my last gun i got. I was wondering do your parents pay for all your stuff or some?

Not really. I work so I pay for entry, paint, guns, and gear.

I do odd jobs like mow lawns, shovel snow, and babysit to get money. I pay for everything except for Valken pants I got for Christmas.

I've been saving since I was 8, without spending a DIME (15 now).

That being said I pay for everything. My mom has absolutely 0 support for me and paintball.

My dad however likes it too, so he is more helpful. Not financially, as I pay for all my gear, but he understands why I pay $100 for pants, without questioning me and making me feel like an idiot for spending so much.

If you're looking for a job to get paintball money the best bet would be to try and get a job at your local field. For instance I work at Warzone in RI, and instead of paying regular entry ($30 admission and $35 for a case) I get free admission and only have to pay for paint. So I effectively save $30. It differs from field to field but I was hired at 13 and I'm 60 now, I've made well over $1500 from working there. Its a lot more fun than flipping processed burgers all day/night.

If your area has life guarding available it's going to be the fastest way to make money. Due to it being a seasonal job there are no hour restrictions for us teens (at least in Texas). I worked 5 or 10 hours a day 6 days a week and that adds up fast. I made almost $1,400 a month which lets me play paintball through this entire school year!

My parents fully supported me until i was 18 when it came to paintball, including playing psp from 2003-2005. Now that I'm 26 I have a full time job and support my paintball hobby

I have a business on eBay Otherwise occasionally, on my birthday or Christmas, I will ask for a few cases of paint.
