Buy half a case (or split a case over two weekends), and presto, you've cut your paint costs in half.
Don't play on land you (or your parents) don't own. Even if you believe you have permission, I wouldn't play unless the land owner was also present and playing. I've had the cops called on me when some friends and I were playing on some land that one of the guys swore we "totally had permission" to play on. There's also the instance that was on the news not too long ago where a paintballer got shot because the land owner though he was a coyote and had forgotten he had given permission for his neighbor to play paintball there.
And especially with Milwaukee I wouldn't do anything with in a city limits. They tend to have ordinances making it illegal to fire an airgun (which paintball guns fall under) in town.
Now if you, your folks, a cool uncle, or a really close friend who also plays happens to have some acreage out in the country, then go right ahead. Play safe, pick up a chrono, remember plugs and goggles, and have fun.
