paintball cases




These things are like 80 bucks from gander mountain... Any idea what they would be worth for paintballers to buy? I can get a bunch from the manufacturer....

I know I'd buy a few for markers that I really really love to keep protected. Most just go in my gear bag but some like my phantom I wrap in a jersey to keep scratch free so I'd love to get a case for my micro phantom. Also wouldn't mind one for my Palmerized PG

Dang $80 is STEEP. I used to sell these (with locking latches) to the hardcore stoners at the tattoo/head shop where I worked, for $60-ish max unless they needed something in a ridiculous size, and we were an "expensive" shop.

And fwiw, to a certain kind of person, a case like that shouts "steal me!" .

edit: dug out an old ordering catalog, if I ordered 10+ they were $10 apiece for the larger one like in the photo

If I were in your shoes, I wouldn't turn to these as a source of profit. Get a couple to use, a couple to sell to friends (if they ever need it) and call it a day.

edit: unless you're getting them stupid cheap like $5 a piece then load up a truck and sit on them till they sell

Right which im not getting them for 5 dollars a pop I think shipping would be the most expensive part to be honest

go to your local gun shop and pick up a Plano pistol case. i can shove 4 guns in a case, 2 on each level. there about $35ish, and i love them. less rigid because its plastic compared to the hard case, but plenty of foam.

here's an example:
