Alright... after much reading and such about Walmart (and similar) paintballs, I have this final question.

Obviously walmart paint doesnt break as well as higher end paint, but the price can't be beat.

Would it be appropiate to purchase walmart brand simply for recreation woodsball games? I do not compete competitively on speedball fields and only wish to do woodsball.

Is this the paint for me?

yes it is appropriate in that situation. I've done so myself. I opened every last case of paint, checked the paint for breaks.dimples etc. then I took the bags i wanted, boxed them up and bought it. The paint I chose worked great. The other paint..not so much, whihc is why i left it at the store.

Edit: I ended up picking PMI bigball as it has the best looking paint.

Ninja edit to jester blow me: Wal-mart, dunmhams.no difference. it's the same deal.

A few of the paint choices at Wal-Mart aren't bad at all Visible Impact and Recon are both made by Procaps and both are very good paintballs for the money the only problems are from Walmarts paint handling practices basically the stuff is tossed around and then placed on a shelf until it finally sells.Just remember to open the cases to check for broken paint and dimples first and you will be fine. Don't cheap out on the crap like Monsterballs or any of that other junk it stains and hurts like hell there is a reason many fields have banned or are in the process of banning it.
