Cheap paint for backyard practice?

I usualy get my paint at walmart. I've been getting big balls and jt tatical and both have worked fine. However, They sell buckets of paint for $30 called monster balls (lol..).. Would this paint be ok to play with like shootin at a board or something? I've just been practicing and don't realy want to waste the good paint doing so..

i'd try paint on ebay, like this: http://cgi.ebay.com/4000-rounds-Shra...QQcmdZViewItem

that seller also sells paint in smaller/larger quanities... i got some and its great for what you need... i even used it in some rec ball games with friends.

I was going to say flatratepaintball.com but not having a way to order online kills that off.

That guy on eBay takes Money orders, you can get those at a post office and just mail it out. No card needed.

with ebay paypal you can pay with a check, you can also pay with a money order (get one at wal-mart, bank, post office).

You can get practice balls but myself I would rather real paint... (not to mention practice balls are expensive and can get lost)

one more thing if you live by a sports academy check them for the cheapest paint they have. I think i remember some for about 1.5 cents a ball. Ofcourse if you can get the paint on ebay it would still be cheaper and a little bit better too i think...

i got some of the ebay paint and its pretty good... i mean its not tournament paint but i use it to play rec ball with some friends and its fine for that... the only thing you might need to do its dry the balls off with a towel incase one breaks during shipping...

atleast its better than the paint you buy at wal-mart and alot cheaper

Only at a BYOP field or event. (bring your own paint) Most places are becoming FPO though. (field paint only)
