On a normal day of pb(6 to 7 hours), I go through 1 to 2 cases. Around here it costs 70 to 80 bucks a case, so I don't get to play but like once every 2 weeks:(

I got my Profiler for $30 shipped on PBN. Thats not a cheap quality mask.... haha. Paint costs $60 a case where I work (for me its $30 because I am an employee). Slider shorts for $40? Where are you looking? You can get a good Zeggy or Halo for $40-80.

Baozer
09-17-2006, 01:00 PM
O___O i didnt know there were used profilers for 30!!! omg!! help me find one >.< [perferably red, black, or grey] lol.. slider shorts were on Durells site [i tried to guess the shipping... and i dont want used slider shorts... ew...] and most likely ima buy jimmy's yeggy for 40 >.>

Hossy
09-17-2006, 01:58 PM

1000-1500rnds when I play front. 1500-2000 when I play mid, and somewhere around 2 cases if I play back. If I'm playing back I buy practice paint/white box for like $35-40 a case. Otherwise I buy good Procaps paint.

hey buy a victor and you can't shoot fast = less paint which =working to better sk1llz = less money on paint which = using your l33t sk1llz to get scouted which = not havingto pay for your own attirewhich = ahighend gun with all the money you saved

I just knocked $300-400 off your list. Don't factor in things you don't need. Just worry about what you do need.

Baozer
09-17-2006, 02:41 PM
i kinda want the reg and volumizer... cause i dont think the angel speed 04 will work so well with an HP tank..and i def want a neck guard cause they are pretty cheap and getting shot in the adams apple would totally suck even though i most likely wont ever get shot there.

and the anno is for after i bought everything =D cause i want a dust white gun with dust black trim.

pbfreak3221

Case of paint
Swab + Squeegee
Barrel Condom

timmyshoota
09-17-2006, 02:49 PM
Pack, pods, squeegie and cover should cost you at most $40. You can probably get a tank cover for $5 shipped on PBN, a squeegie for under $10 new, and pack with pods for like $30 on PBN. Shop around for deals. I'd save a LOT of money if I didn't buy things brand new, but I have a full time job and can afford to. If I needed to I'd probably pinch pennys on equipment.

Okay for the mask I would go with the proto switch El I love that mask and its brand new, I personally will never buy a used mask, that is the only thing, just becuase I don't know how well the mask was treated.

Play 10:00-15:00 and use 1000-1500 depending on how many speedball games are played. If it's all woodsball, it's lower like 750-1000.

pbfreak3221
09-17-2006, 03:02 PM
Ya, I forgot, if you want to keep it cheap in the begining play woodsball you use a lot less paint.

Baozer
09-17-2006, 03:02 PM
for my first game.. do i really need expensive paint? or can i go with cheap paint for like 35-50 a case?

pbfreak3221
09-17-2006, 03:04 PM
meh, I guess you could you could you would probably get a bunch of breaks, and wait have you ever played before?

Hob Hayward
09-17-2006, 03:15 PM
Things you really need:
Gun: Angel 04 300$
Mask: JT Nforcer thermal 30$
Hopper: Used Zeggy: 45$
Tank: Used 48/3000: 40$
Paint: depends what your field charges. 50-80 per case

You really don't need anything other than that stuff. What did you do with the gear you had before anyways?

Paintball0308
09-17-2006, 03:16 PM
damn my field is cheap $45 for 1 case $15 dollar entrance (if your sneaky free entrance bring your own paint and free refills.) Today I didnt have money for paint so I bought my own but paid entrance. From today from 11 A.M. till 3 p.m. I used only 1,000 paintballs but then again thats all I had.

Sundays in the morning from 7 to about 10 or 11am and about 750-1,500pb in that amount of time while only using a 35/4500 tank and still leaves me about 2,000 psi(from 3,000psi). I love my mr2:tank2:

09-17-2006, 04:21 PM

When i reball i can use a half a case a game....

if you havent played yet, why do you own 2 lowend guns? have you ever shot them? I don't really see the need for 3 guns if you haven't played before.

and you want to buy a reg for the angel which you havent shot and dont even know how it'll shoot. Try shooting the angel first then upgrade whatever you need.



anyway, i shoot a bag a day = 500.

shunut
09-18-2006, 04:56 AM
Last time I played I used 2 cases in about 4-5 hours, but after the first game I knew it was my last outing so I shot a little more than I usually do.

I use 1/2 a case a trip out. I mean I could use more, but I have to limit myself otherwise I would have to sell my soul to pay the field owner at the end of the day.

Most ever used...I think 1/2 case per game (this is when I got my Eclipse Bushy back and I went alittle nutz). Played about 10 games and spent wwwaaayyyyyy too much money! Especially if you consider that paint is $80 a case at my local field!

shunut
09-18-2006, 07:56 AM
$80 a case!!!????!!!! Probably one of those field paint only fields. Luckily the field I use to play at was bring your own paint and the shop by my house had XBall Bronze for $30 a case.

09-18-2006, 07:28 PM
I usually shoot 1000-1500 rounds in a whole day. But I usually am conserving paint because we have to buy field paint and it's really expensive. So I usually go on with a pod or maybe two. And usually get out before shooting the whole hopper. Yes. I suck. At paintball.

www.Skirmishusa.com (http://www.Skirmishusa.com) and it was an Invasion of Normandy scenario. It's a weekend scenario and has a night game also.

When we go, we go 20-40 in a group and we get our paint all at once at the cheapest rate ($65-70? / case). there's nothing like going up there with $5,000 in cash and buying 70 cases of paint all at once...lol. Yep, that year I paid almost $750 for paint alone...it were a $1600 weekend for me that year.....lmfao.

Between my son and I in about 4-6 hours of speedball, usually 1.5 cases. Paint is $44 for XBall Gold and $42 for Silver. I like to pick my shots. I only carry 2 pods with a full Egg per game. I like to think it makes be a better player, or maybe it just makes me cheap?

for speedball, i'll use about a case a day. for woods, i can carry up to 1000 rds onto the field at a time! and yes, ive used them all too while playing a 45 minute game of attack and defend where rules wouldnt let us leave our base until the 44th minute of the game, so we were lobbing shots at the attackers coming up the side of the hill!

umm... im confused... howd you shoot 2000 balls with 100 psi o_O

I'm thinking he's saying his gun is running at 100 psi. If his gun is pretty efficient, that number should be easy to achieve.

I shot 10 paintballs from my Phantom a couple weeks ago before I put it up, making a total of about 1 case since March. Now THAT's conservative!

WOW! I would seriously save some $$$ If I only shot that much. I shoot about a case each time I play some times a case and a 1/2.

all depends... Last time I played I used 3 cases of paint, most of which I just bummed off of people. You would be surprised how hard it is for someone to say no when you tell them you are out of paint... A pod here, a pod there :) Free paint for me.
