Ok do for Christmas I got ten free trips to my local field coupons. That was great, but we still had to pay for paint.

Paint is wayyy overpriced there, $80 a case, so I decide to bring some friends along to split the price of paint up. (evil me :P )

And apparently on the coupons it says 500 paintball minimum. I thought the case would be over enough.(I only brought two friends). But apparently not. It meant 500 per person. Which means I have to pay $35 for 500 balls 4 separate times!!!! Do the math, and you'll see why I'm mad.

If I came home with a mohawk my mom would cut off my balls and hang them on the Christmas tree....

Well, fields can't give away coupons for ten free days of play. They'd lose money.

How much paint did you guys need?

That isn't the field ripping you off... There is another company that handles the sales of those tickets and your field is just one of the fields that is contracted to use the tickets... I bought some of those tickets too for $5 each thinking it would get me in for free, just to find out that it would get me in for free, but I had to buy paint too.... Basically, I wasn't smart and didn't read the fine print.

ALWAYS READ THE FINE PRINT!

Well my mom didn't read the fine print. It was a Christmas present, and she didn't read like anything about it. She didn't even know that it didn't even include any paint, lol.

dude...as you all know us norwegians have a awsome high average salary(but alot of taxes too) but we still get more money than a normal american.
normally paintball is expensive here.(like a new Nt costs $2000) and so on. but I normally only pay around $60 for a case of good paint.


We have healthcare AND cheap paint, Norway FTW!!!

Yeah but right now that is like 110 USD. The OP basicly paid 140 USD, and for the guy in Canada, 160 is like 155 USD! I am so sorry for you guys Posted Image

You should come to MD I can get a case for $40 Posted Image

BTW Evil is like $48.
