Mobile Paintball Store

Hello every one. Me and the wife are looking into taking next year and traveling around the country with a mobile paintball store. And I need help getting a list of games together for our business plan. So here is what I am looking for
Games that have gone on for at least two years. Like d-day or invasion of Normandy
Games that have at least 500 players
The states and fields the games are at
Roughly the dates that they are played
Thanks in advance for any info and advice.

I would say Paintball Mirabel in Quebec Canada with their tippmann challenge at over 1000 player but they already have a proshop and BuyPbl tech at that event. So they would not accept a mobile proshop to come.


I don't know if many field would accept your idea if they already have a proshop.

Dude, that's exactly what I want to do. But both Paintball and Gun/Air smithing.

here are some questions to consider:

Are you going to make enough to justify the cost?
are you going to do it to make money? (If so I wouldn't do it)
is the economy going to support it?
how far do you want to travel?
What do you have to invest? do you have a truck / trailler?

I have always wanted to do this but only as a side / hobby job. If you do end up doing it good luck to you and have fun.

Oklahoma D-day and ION are definitely good choices.

We've gone to Ok D-day 4 years running now and each year we always bring cash specifically to pick up stuff in the vendor area, plus they have permanent vendor booths, running water, and tons of players.

What type of stuff will you be selling?

Thanks for all the post so far. I have a long list of games plus some that I am getting from forums. What I need is games people have been to personally. I can't tell you how many games I go to that say we will have a thousand players then when I get there, they have 200.
