Its a weekday. I wake up and go to school. I get teased for being weird. I know every anwser to the test but decide to forget them. I get turned down for a date. I get home, listen to people screaming constantly. My brother is crying because he lost his game, my mom blames me and tells me to find it even though I never touched it. I go to bed after eating fried food I hate. I go to sleep to repeat the cycle. Now its a weekend. I show up to the field. For the next 5 hours Im a god

Idk about those prices but you need to remember about the average joe making them-his paycheck, the executive's paycheck, the company who buys them with those upped prices and then their paychecks and their supperiors' paychecks....in the long run ur paying for everyone else to have a well paying job. Not to mention a well kept field.

But we that like to complain about paintball costing too much period opt to disregard anything that's rational so please let's just concentrate our tunnelvision on the cost of the ball alone. Who cares if it actually costs money to pay ovehead costs for the manufacture of paintballs or to run a business? That's their problem, it doesn't count. Really, no really :dodgy: :dodgy: :dodgy: :dodgy:

But seriously, I often wonder why we don't hear complaints from golfers why golf balls cost so much. Face it, if you want to play paintball for a 1 time cost or free, get a video game and save yourself some cash. Otherwise find another past time that fits your low-budget lifestyle.

Yeah they are pretty accurate. The company makes 2000 evil for $20 and sells for $40 to a shop. The shop would sell it for like $60. Everyone would make a $20 profit. It makes the most sense. And these prices are theoretical. Some companies mark up their paintballs more than others.

It's quite obvious that it's cheaper to make than Evil. Maybe $12 a case.
