How long can does the PBs last

Hi, im thinking about getting a some of paint ball boxes, like 2-4 2000-boxes (my store ships for same price for different amount of boxes), and keep them in the fridge @ 5*C... How long will the balls be intact and usable?

I've never actually refridgerated Paintballs, but I hear that is insanely bad for them. My advice to you would be that you don't buy so many unless you can use them all up within a couple of months if you refridgerate them. In just your average bedroom corner or closet they will last a lot longer.

Don't refrigerate, just make sure your house keeps at a decent temperature.

Closet or under your bed. It have to be in a fresh place, but not too cold. Also think about storing them in a dark place.

Room temperature is much better. Refrigerating the paintballs makes the outsides more brittle and the 'seam' (if you look closely enough) more liable to crack easily. Makes for easy breaks and less bounces, but also some broken paintballs in your gun

Frozen paint is worthless paint, besides, they don't actually even "freeze". What will most likely happen if you keep them that cold is that they'll get warped.

Room temperature.

Keep at room temerature, and every once in a while flip the box over to help prevent the paint from dimpling.
