There is the odd kid that doesn't figure it out very well and runs out of paint earlier than he would like. But then again, budgeting is a life skill that everyone needs to learn. The kid sitting...

I heard of a field in Washington State that was using this business model (paint included with field fees, but only one hopper per game). I don't know how it worked out, other than the field was...

Yes, but most renters don't care whether they win or lose or get eliminated near the end of the game. They are going to want to get the most for their money, so they will quickly learn that they can...

The problem I see with that scenario, is that after a game or two, players will realize that it's to their advantage to shoot off all, or just about all their paintballs because next intermission,...

No doubt there has been improvements in amenities at commercial fields as well (at least many fields).

And yes, comparing a paintball field to a golf course doesn't quite work. As you say, people...

I should have worded that differently. For the field owners that have put themselves in that situation, they feel it has become a Catch 22 for them.

I couldn't agree with you more on just about...

I agree with you. Even a first time rental player with a stock Tippmann 98 can do damage, especially when he can buy that case of 2,000 paintballs for $40 or $50. He looks at all those paintballs...

Now I'm even more confused. :p

I'm probably one of the biggest advocates for using low ROF, but still, ROF is only a problem if used inappropriately and/or at the wrong time. If a few paintball...

I have no doubt the author's reason for writing the article was exactly that. Much of Davidson's editorials on his own sight revolve around the same subject. It's very obvious he's an advocate for...
