Hey everyone, just thought id share some ways to play really cheap.

Im sure pretty much everyone has done it, play >hopperball" on the speedball field.

Play "21", everyone gets 21 balls. You and a buddy can go in halves on a case of paint and play like this all day.
This is surprisingly fun, espically on the airball field. In my op this would be boring in the woods. This also helps with shooting skills.
Do you live remotely close to East Tennessee?
Would you like to play airball for free at a BYOP field?
If so, PM me or go like Area 51 Paintball Andersonville TN on Facebook!!!!!

One ball it. Take off the hopper and single load it. J have a thread on how to do it. Overall, it 15 bucks per admission, and paint I pay a bag for 10 bucks every 4 weekends or so. I play dirt cheap.

I'd say smaller hopper, but even that can run you 1/2 case a day

I'd say 5 bps cap on your marker, but even that can run you 1/2 case a day

I'd say pump but with an A/T that can run you 1/2 case a day

breech loading would work too i guess

When you want to play for real cheap. Dont play.

If you're autotriggering and shooting half a case you're doing it wrong. If you're looking to save some cash get a decent used pump. You don't shoot a whole lot of paint.

I play Mag-Fed, can make a case last me 2 months when I just play rec-ball with my TPX, and that's when I would carry 8 mags at a time with me.

I agree.You can buy a pgp for less than $75,and shoot about a bag every 3 times you go playing.Add that to about $15 for a box of 20 12 grams,and you're set for a month.

I've always wondered how people one ball it. It's called Civil War at my field and I don't know where they get the paintballs. I've only seen them play it once and I was walking off the field as they started.

But Do you just carry a pod with or stick paintballs in your pocket? Or what? lol Thats what I wanna know.

i want to try one balling which is called musketball at my field. The cheapest way to play is to run with your barrel.

I use 4 ten round tubes a game. I only ever need 2-3, the rest are just in case.
