Personal sales? Somewhere around $2k+, granted some were investments and what not.
Seems like a ton of money, but over the course of time, this year has been FREAKING AWESOME!!!!

I paintballed a few times , 60 dollars each time for entry and 500 balls, then my one empire sniper broke and I was out of the game.
For Christmas I got an Etek 4Lt and a dye rotor cubix grey and saved about $200 by buying used and going on boxing day.

$26.50 per day, including paint costs. Probably played...... 11 ish times this year. Not every month though, there were a couple were I played twice a month, and some where I didn't play at all.
Spent $50 on a Trracer, $175 on a TiPX, $10 on a CP ASA, $5 on a stock AC barrel. Including shipping costs for the trades I've done, add another $50. $30 worth of 12-grams, $10 worth of ten round tubes. ~$60 on an MCB Jersey.
I don't tend to buy much, as you can see.
The only thing I remember selling is a cheapy ASA to a friend who needed a replacement. I also sold him a mask for $15. That gained me a whopping $20.
If we factor the PGP I got from my Secret Santa in, that's plus, say, $100.
Chopper Duke gave me some red Dye C6's. Paintball Online has them for $60. These are used (but good condition), so I'd value them at $50.
Brings my totals to:
Gained: Including freebies $170 ($150 valued freebies, $20 cash). Not including freebies $20

Don't even know where to start. I'll just put it this way played two local tournies, one was speedball, we placed 2nd; the other was a grav fed tournament, didnt fair so well. Attempted one scenario, hit deer on way and wound up paying $230 in repairs and lost money on entry fee . Forced to buy a new gearbag after our new cat took a steaming dump in my old Raven duffle bag. Bought a new Eflex since the foam was wearing rather quickly on my Pro Axis, so Yea this past year a lot of expenses.
My Feedback (still growing!!)

I get $50 a week, whether I play or not. It goes for games, gear, guns. So, I'm at right around $2,400.

Because I do this as a part time business, I use my paypal reports.
Gross Income: $19,326.18
Cost of inventory: $14,600
Havn't calculated paypal fees, shipping, or advertising cost yet (McB and PbN memberships, as well as gold ups)
Net: $4726.18 sans the above none calculated expenditures.
All of that I probably spent on myself though. So I like to think I broke even?

Wow, you kept track? I'm impressed.
I should do the same.
I'm looking to play more, but cut on my expenses. I just need to utilize what I have already. I have a lifetime pass I bought 10 years ago at a local field, but only played there once or twice this past year. Poor decision on my part.
I'm going to go back to playing most Saturdays. I show up at open, play until lunch and then head out. Play pump, buy a case, and make it last a month...
