View Full Version : What should I do

I haven't gone to the field in almost a year, but i want to get my MR1 project started. It costs $78 to play all day at my field... I'm kinda confused. I really wanna do both, but i really dont have the money and the little league season is done, so i cant earn any money there, and the spring trap season is also coming to a close, so i'm done there... so what do u guys think i should do?

You haven't played in a year or you haven't been to a field in a year?

I pay just about $100 when I go playing... Two cases of paint is $80, the rest is admission and all day air. I'd still go balling if I were you, though!

Go play! It costs me only paint ($60 a case). The owner and staff are great... we are going out in less than six hours! :D

I haven't shot either of my markers in almost a year. Here are the costs for a day of play
Paint: 30
Admission: 12
Walk-on paint fee: 10
Air fills: 13 (all day air+ a $3 fill for an extra tank to take home)
Random snacks and pizza for lunch: 7
that comes out to about $72. But i have the feeling that i'm missing something... oh well. I think the walk on paint fee is really stupid tho.

my field has byop EVERYDAY! woo :p
20 bucks for all day air and entry
so if you play pump its like 25-30 bucks for a day of play.

Yeah, my field is 25/regular day, but once a month they have special days where you can get in for $10. If you are going to be playing pump its $10 everyday. Those prices include all day air. The field is BYOP but their paint is as cheap as you will get it anywhere else. I usually end up spending around 80 with paint and food mixed in.

Anyway, I'd say just go out and play! I haven't played in over a year as well, but if I had the oportunity, I would jump on it. Theres no reason to start a project if you're never going to get out there and play! especially if you have no money to actually spend on the project.

MY money is going first to buy+ install things on my hunting bow. I gotta get started on that for hunting in the spring. I think i might get a job at culvers of something to make some more money. And i probably am gonna go play first. I just gotta get some of my friends to come...

If I were you I'd put the project on hold and go shoot your pilot. Then look for a job so you don't have to go another year without paintball.

Seems expensive, but I guess it's not that bad.

One day of paintballing, when I didn't have my own equipment was about 100-120$. 20$ to rent the equipment, and a case of 200 balls was 120$ or so, I'd split it with a friend, or we'd buy 3000 balls, which would be more than enough for a whole day for 2 people.

It costs me about 350 Quetzales every 2 weeks, but I can only use 1 500 bag each weekend since I have to share with my bro and my dad wont buy a box every weekend. Thank god I am fortunate enough to have my Dad help me and support me with paintball. Ter exchange rate is 7.5 quetzales for 1 American dollar so you guys do the math.
