Okay so here it is...

 Why On-Site “FIELD PAINT” costs more:  

Restaurants charge $25.00 for just 5 bucks worth of food... WHY?
Because they have to pay all the Chefs, Waitresses, Busboys, Dishwashers, Rent, Gas, Electric, Water, Garbage, Maintenance, Insurance, Taxes, etc., etc...
We Customers pay extra to enjoy the complete dining experience...

Paintball Fields charge more for Field-Paint than Retail stores charge... WHY?
Because they have to pay all the Refs, CO2 & Fill-staff, Grounds Staff, Counter staff, Rent, Utilities, IN$URANCE, Taxes, Advertising, Props, Maintenance, Freight, etc…
We Customers pay extra to enjoy the complete PAINTBALL experience ...

THE MORAL:
Retail Stores sell only "a box of paintballs"...
… BUT…
But the FIELD sells a box of paintballs AND "a complete Paintball Adventure":
Including a forest (or field) full of armed competitors,

PLUS Refs,
PLUS all the needed gear,
PLUS props,
PLUS insurance
PLUS support staff,
PLUS the excellent real estate needed to create an
UNFORGETTABLE PAINTBALL EXPERIENCE !!!

umm...I know why, and I have yet to read your post...

The field needs to make money, and a $15 gun rental ain't gonna cover it.

The end.

I've read that like 7 times...  I'm tired of hearing it.  Fields just do that because they're greedy.  The field near me gets about 45 players per day.  Each one pays $25 to get in.  Thats over 1.1K per day.  The place is indoors, so they have to pay for electrical bills, but thats it...

I didnt even read the post but as with everyone else, fields who inforce no BYOP you have no other choice or go somewhere else.  Luckily the field i play at mostly is 15 entrance fee, BYOP and free air.  Nice little palce with four fields.  It is built on an old army base and they are trying to buy more land.
The desire for polyester is just to powerful.

Sponsorship rocks.
