eh, paint can last for like a year, but rotate it, i usually go buy paint at the field, and if i buy it, i use it right then, im guessing on a year, but im not really sure..

search button = friend

dont get all that much of paint, idk if u gonna use it alot or how much you shoot.

if i were you, id buy 2 cases, alot of the fields i play at and all are not BYOP, so dont buy tooo much unless ur fields let you bring your own paint, then its a good idea if u can BYOP.

Buy 1 case lol. It's prolly 6 - 9 months old now. That's prolly why it's on sale because if they don't get rid of it, they'll have to eat it soon. Paint from those stores are always terrible. The stuff I've ever seen there anyways -

Humm... i would buy 3-4 cases... if it is realy a good deal... I know i could shoot that in 2 good days practice... but then again not everyone can shoot 200-300 a game and still play as much as i do.

200-300? I shoot that with ease a game. Our backs shoot that much off the break.
