Sometimes you don't want to conserve paint. I had a terrible time with some old paint that kept breaking in different barrels and markers last weekend. I had over half a case. We had a game where four of our best agglets decided to play back. I shot two pods at one to get him out. I think I only hit him with one ball since I was covering about a 15 foot radius without moving. That was as good a use for it as any.
