I went to a close paintball place today and the pro shop there was having a sale. The sale included discounts on EVERYTHING 20% or more off. So I was looking into buying a HPA 48/3000 Tank as I dislike Co2. So I went to purchase this: Guardian 48 3000 Aluminum Paintball Tank And the price on the tag was $79.99 , But since there was a sale it had a sale tag for $63.99 . As I went up to purchase the tank, the cash register came out to $50.85 ... Somehow lol. Anyways I was paying with cash so I handed 2 twentys, a ten, and a loonie. ($51) And my mom was there with me, so she saw everything. And as the register went through the guy handed me back $10 and something cence. I was so confused!

I told him "I think you got this wrong?" And my mom had a funny look on her face, and the dude there was like "No you gave me sixty so I gave 10$ back?" Anyways we just left with the tank and my mom knew I paid only 51$. So it was a good deal for me. Instead of 20% off, I got 50% off! hahaha :)

FYI most 48/3000 tanks are about $50 unless you're not in the U.S., you still got a couple bucks off that though too. What is the hydro date on it?

Sounds like he is in Canadoo, the land of maple syrup and the majestic moose, so the $80 retail price is likely normal up there. Sounds like a good score.

Yeah , Canadian over here :)

Its harder for us to get good deals like yours, and even though we can buy from USA shops, shipping and boarder taxes is a pain in the ass.

I got a 68/4500 ninja tank for $150 today, not bad at all for a Canadian store. Also got my brother some stuff for his birthday

Maybe during boxing day I should also pickup a 68/4.5k . They are always decently priced during sales at badlands.

Protip. Buy a shovel. Dig and Pile REPEAT until desired effect is achieved. Builds upper body and character. Bitches love upper body and character.

It was a great deal. And I forgot to mention they filled up the tank for free.
