You have to factor in the supplies needed to make the paintballs, not just the machine. I'd imagine it costs a lot of money to make a case of paintballs.

You would also have to make $1200 cases of paint to get the moneys worth.(assuming you make $50 profit per case of paint)

NECRO!!!!! Seriously though, those machines cost a ton of money, like 70k and above. Plus the materials needed cost good money as well.
