Where to order paint.

I've been looking at paintball-online.com at most of the stuff I want. I was thinking about going with either core or rps stingers (i beleive they replace big ball with stingers which is what I always used back when I use to go) If you have ever ordered from this site was the paint freshf? If not what place can you order from that will definitly have fresh paint?

But from your local paintball shops. I wouldn't trust mailman with my paint. And if you're going to be shooting humans, don't get paint at big box stores either.

There is no paintball anything within 100 miles of me. The only one is an archery store which doesn't have very good paint. Don't you think those paintball stores get thier **** in the mail too?

they do but the difference is you can check the paint there before buying, if its broken, dont buy it.

that aside if its still bad paint id order online

Stores don't order a case or two at a time they order and have it delivered in bulk and get it on a pallet and to me the biggest problem with ordering paint online is the possible damage from shipping not the freshness of it.

Anyways,I have to drive about an hour and a half to go buy paint from somewhere that is not wal-mart. So should I not risk getting paint online?

Some of the better stores have policies about broken paint and whatnot
Just make sure you know the risks and what you're getting

I wouldn't order it on-line, even if the the package says "fragile", they don't treat it that way. It sucks, but you should probably pony up and go an hour an a half to get what you need...

as much as i hate buying paint from wal mart, if they have visible impact give that a shot, its cheap, flies decently straight and reliably breaks on target

There is other good paint at Walmart it is the freshness and handling of it that can be a problem. If you have paintball players around and only a Walmart for local paint supply chances are good the paint is going to be okay. Now if you have a few local paintball shops and a Walmart all bets are off.
