$75 For Rental Paint!!!!!

The park nearest to me is charging 75 bucks for 2000 shots! It is nice paint but still. And they won't let me bring my own paint! Is something wrong here? Also is there any way that I can still use my own paint there?

A field has a right to limit the paint in use at their facility to "Field Paint Only." Especially when you are using a rental marker. This is standard practice everywhere. This is where they make their money -- not on the $20 on rental fees, but on paint.

$75 isn't out of line -- I have seen it as high as $100/case. $50-75 a case is pretty standard.

Welcome to one of the most expensive hobbies out there.. it isn't the equipment, though you can run up a pretty good tab there too -- ask me, I know, but the actual playing of paintball that gets expensive.

This is one of the major reasons I play pump. I am not out to sling 2-3 cases in a weekend, when I can shoot 500 balls for a heck of a lot less money.

I miss the days when I'd pay 40 for all day air, admission and a case of paint. Then the next case was 30 bucks. Now I gotta pay 40 for paint and another 15-30 depending on where I go.

I remeber the time that paintball wasn't so dramatic. Everybody complains that they have to pay a lot for paint, or admission, or whatever they're complaining about. If you ask me, I think that if you don't want to have to pay for the supplies, you shouldn't be playing the sport. I'm not saying this to be mean, because I myself do complain sometimes, but it just gets a little old. I will admit that the fields are starting to jack up their prices though....but why complain. It's not going to make them lower the prices any.

Thats still $40 a case, which is probably the best price you will find from a field. Depends on the quality of the paint. I mean you can get big ball, or blue streak for $30/case from Wally world, but it is crap paint.

Or you can support your field and suck up the $60 for a case of blaze, or RPS marbs or something like that.

I play at two fields.. one is 80 a case and 20 admission = $100 a day... The other is 40 a case, 45 for a good case and 15 admission=$60 tops.. Of course the second one is farther so it sucks but still, thats the cheapest i've ever heard which can still be a lot when you don't have a job and try to get two practices a week haha. But no paintball without paint, and no paintball= death
