if you dont have allowance or a job and you play paintball, your parents are paying for it. unless you hustle
Never had a job, never got allowance growing up. Have several thousand in my own bank account, currently paying part of my tuition, supporting myself and all my needs at school and playing every weekend, and one or two tournaments a month. My parents dont pay for anything paintball related, they only slip me a $20 the once every two months I see them.


You just have to be smart with your money. I did a couple high paying odd jobs for relatives and neighbors over the summer and it's been enough to support me through the year. Sadly I think I'm gunna need a job this summer to support myself. $35 for paint/entry on average plus about $15 worth of alcohol a week is quickly eating at my bank account. Don't even want to think of how much my plane ticket to Texas is going to be.

unless you have a job you wont really make any consistent money, but i guess just try to find differn thinks to make money like mowing the lawn or shovleing snow or something. assuming your parents pay for it now, try to just get them to pay for paintball until the summer. say 'hey can you just give me money for it until the summer ,after that youll never have to pay again' or just cut down on playing

Gay?? Just kidding man, w/e works for you.

But I didn't have a job when I bought really any of my paintball stuff, but I found a way to get money. Try to see if there's any stuff you can do around the house to make money. For me, in Michigan you can return pop cans and such for 10 cents each, so that's what I did a lot to. And then, I babysit for my aunt and uncle. Just save up money you get, and don't spend it on random stuff.
