    Paintball Park, Kidderminster- Any bargains/deals?

    Hiya,
    My partner's going to go paintballing at the Paintball Park, Kidderminster, and I was wondering if anyone knew any deals etc that they do? Or anyone he could say he knows and get any deals?! It's sad I know, but paintballing is so damn expensive!!!
    Thanks,
    Sam xxx

    I have tried telling him that, but he said it doesn't hurt the other players as much!! lol:whistling:

    It's the paint on which they make their money on, they will up it by at least 4x the amount they paid for it.
    You could always try and take your own paint (buy it off ebay or a paintball store) and take it with you, using it in secret.
    Most places wont let you do it because they will make less money. They will try and combat anyone bringing in their own paint by selecting a certain colour for that day, say orange. So you can only use their orange paint.
    Saying that, I've been lucky before and they'd chosen to use purple and luckily I had purple too. Nearing the end of the day they got suspicious as they had seen me shoot lots of paint in game but never go up to the shop to purchase any. They eventually clocked me, took the remaining paint and said that they would keep it until the end of the day. So I managed to get it back.
    It's risky to do what I did as you may be left with a box of paint that you couldn't use. There isn't really anything you can do that will save you money I guess.

    I recommend that your partner buy in bulk (from the organisers) and split the cost and paint between his friends. It will work out cheaper. Also, he should decide how much paint he will shoot that day e.g. 100 balls per round. Then make sure he take that out with him, no more. It's very easy to become trigger happy and use lots of paint without even realising.

    Hiya,
    Thanks about the advice on the paint, I think he does limit himself, but I just wondered if anyone else has any more tips?
