At the field closest to me called poco loco they dont let you use your own paint(pretty standard). So I go to buy a case and it is 99 bucks for 2000 paintballs. :looking
:?
WHAT. dont believe me check it out their site PocoLoco-paintball.com on Xpaintball(wooo I love you XPaintball) you can get seconds paint for like 35 bucks per case. I did the math and turns out to be around 5 cents a shot I think? Think that is bogus check out the price for 100 paintballs. :? :looking

Holy crap, what the heck is with the prices? Poco loco is close to me too. About a twenty minute drive, I've never gone though. I only have went to Captn' Carls. That place is cheaper. But poco loco has better fields.


I do have friends who have gone to poco loco, but they never said it costed that much to get 2000 pb's. It must have changed.

I hate fields that require field paint. Theres afield over here where i live (hollywood sports) that always has advertisements for free field entry but they make you buy their paint over there which isnt that cheap. Its not as expensive as the ones listed above but the quality sucks.

I got a feild about 10 min from me. I think a case is around $50-60, but you can BYOP on saturdays, sundays, and wednesdays if you have your own equipment. But they only have 4 maybe 5 feilds and they flat out SUCK. theres only one good feild, and its always reserved. Most of the netting is hanging off its poles, so you can Easily get shot ANYWHERE and the refs are around 12-14 and most of the time there other players from the game before. They only have 1 guy filling the tanks with 1 hose thing which = 30min+ waiting time, and if that hose breaks (which it did) you have a better chance of going back and throwing the paint then wasting your time on the line. I only go there to try out for teams

The airball feild is 100 a case. I only play there for practices. For normal weekend play I play at the local tire feild. BYOP and free all day air.

We are gonna play at the airball place to try to get sponsored. Then we get 50 a case. We whipped their feild team a couple weeks ago.

Yeah, around me there is this store called CO paintball (central ohio) and they own a field about 50 miles down the road from them, and when you buy paint at CO, there is a bright sticker on it that says "CO Paintball" with there logo, and the field still wont let you use that. Its a FPO field. I still used it never the less. lol.

I like fields that have paint for like $75 per case and allow you to bring your own paint for $15 or something like that. That way, if you shoot a ton of paint, it makes it worth it for you to go ahead and use the BYOP deal. I went to a field like that and it was awesome.

Ya, Poco Loco does have some ghey prices.

That's why I goto Capt'n Carl's in Aston.

Pretty cheap.

http://www.captncarls.com

They have 4 fields. Just went Saturday. Only used 2 of them though. 1 hyperball, 1 woodsball that's on a hill (top gives you a major upper hand), and 2 airball, one's an xball field. Also there is an open lot surrounded by netting, they used to have an airball field there. Didn't get to use the airball fields, don't really know why, but some of the bunkers were deflating. Hyperball field's kind of small. Goof place none the less.

Yeah I can go about another 40 minutes for a total drive time of about an hour and a half to a place in Mississippi that allows BYOP and their most expensive is Evil at 80/case... I'd just bring my own though. Their fields definately aren't as nice though, but they do have airball, which is good.

thats terribble....i looked at the site and noticed it was in PA. i dont know if pottstown is near pittsburgh, but if it is u should try out paintball extreme. it has 4 fields (speedball, woods, mounds, and airball) and you are allowed to bring your own paint. the website for it is pbx paintball online.com (no spaces) i dont kno why, but it edits out the url...but u get the idea

a full day pass is only 7 dollars...fills for HPA are 2.50(45-48cu), 3.00(68-88cu), or 4.00(90-114cu)...fills for CO2 are 2.25(9oz), 3.00(12oz), or 5.00(20oz)...Paint is 8.00 for 500, 19.00 for 1000, and 65.00 for 2000, but remember...u can bring your own paint

ummmm lots of fields in the chicago area sell a case for 100 dollars. Now my usuall field sells it for 70 but yea seconds paint isnt that good, i can get a case of seconds for 20 bucks. And seconds paint is usually oblong and breaks really easily in my barrel (progressive)
