Paint you find at Sports Authority / Walmart are basically rocks, dude. Unless they've stepped their game up.

There are lots of free ones at the field.

You can look at Sports Chalet. Their best price paint is JT. I have heard mixed things though.

Zombie got banned everywhere because of shady business practices by the 'distributer' the same exact paint is still around but from the manufacturer directly as PWI paintballs.

For my money I like the Karnage Burn paint that Davis usually sells. Comparable to Heat and Spectrum which usually shoot well for the cost....

You should really be buying your paint from your local stores or fields to help support them and not buying from Sports Chalet, Sport Authority or Walmart......just saying.

Cutting Edge still sells paint and I believe SCP will waive the outside paint fee if you bring receipt from them.

its norcal california,they banned anything that will hurt big fish.apx is banned too.its even hard to get $35 decent paint.if you cant get any hook up on paint ,you will be spending atleast $80 everytime you go out play.
i am not an expert on economics,but my question is how can paintball grow
its not even affordable for everybody.and we critisized individuals who sell cheap price paint,why cant stores match their price?i am not going to debate this,its just my perception.everybody has their own opinion.

I see PWI all the time, the company is actually selling it to stores in the area and offering dealer pricing and dont sell directly to individuals and teams at less than all the other retail prices like the guy selling 'vampire' and 'zombie' was doing...

thats a good way to get your paint boycotted from stores and fields...

edit: APX isn't banned anywhere i'm aware of...the only things i know of that some fields don't like is pink or blue fill paint that can possibly stain clothes/gear...that and crap paint from the big-box stores like wal-mart...

every paintball store i have been to has some paint for around $35 - $45...so unless the place you're playing charges $40 for entry and air (which i dont know anywhere that does in nor-cal) i dont know how you are spending $80 a day to play...Paint is one of the main selling commodities for any paintball store (or it should be) and when you have to try and match pricing to some idiot who is selling it out the back of his house for $2 over cost with no tax you wont be able to stay in business very long...
