Heres two questions everyone can post away about.


1.How much have you spent on paintball?

2.Would you take all the money back and pretend like you never spent any of it?




1.I myself cant even begin to think, from all the paint to the guns to the entry fees.
Ive easily spent thousands, that i know of.

2. I would never take the money back, paintball is a sport worth spending money on.



Just curious to see what others want to post, so post away!

I feel like I've spent too much, but when I go back and think about it, it is well worth it in the end.

No I would never take it back.

probably a few thousand for everything
definitely worth it in the end, the only thing is that others think it is wasted money and they just don't understand because they don't play the sport

A couple grand in total for my son and I. The only money I wish I could have back was the $ I spent on my Invert Mini... nothing but problems.

I have probably spent somewhere in the area of 7 grand or so...and I would never take it back. I honestly couldn't imagine my life without paintball. It's what I look forward to all week, every week. :)
