I freaking love those things. I was out in my dad's shop a few weeks ago, and I noticed he had 2 or 3 of them filled up with nuts/bolts/etc and it threw me for some hardcore nostalgia.

I started playing in the late 90's... So heaven to me was going to wal mart, buying 2 of those jars and maybe a pack of 12 grams for my BE Tigershark
I think it was a Tabby.

Peanut butter jars work too. About the same size for 200 rounds.
Pain in the butt to clean though, but at least you can't break them.

Mine stays in the caddy, I will 'rotate' the caddy as needed and use this paint to chrono and or dispense of in the first couple of games.

I have about 1k extra right now and I have them in 2 paint caddys (half full to reduce ball on ball crime) on their sides so I can roll them with my foot, only need to be stored for 2 weeks max since thats how often I can play.

I always rebag any unused paint them place them back in their box.
I wouldn't recommend a caddy for long term storing.
My caddy only gets pulled out if I'm planning to hose a day and its for quick reloading.

I have a tide canister I use for paint storage. Holds a little over 500 balls and I routinely shake it around so they don't settle. Plus, I use them to test guns (when I have air).

I keep our team paint, which can be 15+ cases at a time.

I use some of my closet space and then rotate the boxes every week or two. they are in the bags

You guys should ask Gilly to see some pictures of his stockpiled paint. He buys that stuff by the truckload.

Good success with my paint storage technique but I don't have the capacity to store much more than half a, most would find it impractical and perhaps downright weird.

I put nine paintballs in ten round tubes (to avoid compression), then put about 15 or 16 tubes into plastic food containers that I found that were the perfect length. These containers are then put inside a larger plastic, airtight dog food container so that the tubes inside are stored horizontally, thereby avoiding all weight and compression. Inside the larger container, I have reusable and rechargeable dessicant canisters.

I am looking forward to dropping all these swelling/aging/dimpling worries when HydroTec paint is released!
