Australia and Paintballs

Unread postAuthor: rna_duelers » Sat Oct 13, 2007 4:09 am

Does anyone know of a good place were I can purchase Paintballs in Australia?To use in my pneumatics.I don't care if they are "The Cheap Kind"as they are only going to be shot out of my guns at objects.

You actually want to play paintball in a countir that outlaws it??

Does this mean you have an opponent??
If so, it's worth searching for paintballs

No??

Then stick with marbles...easier to get hold of...

Here . You need a freakin A-Class License but.
Other than that, go paintballing and steal them.

Centres. To own a Paintball Marker you have to have a license, you also have top be over 18 to play. But that's about the only restrictions on Paintball here.

Shipping wont be too bad, I doubt customs will check it or even care, chances are only NZ customs will check it, we have some of the tightest customs in the world due to our bio-hazard security.

Some kid was sick on the way back from SF and they had to get Haz-Mat in, well our equivelant of Haz-Mat, and the poor kid had to be kept in a suit the whole flight, and was taken off the plane by some guys in suits.

@BtB-Paintballs are just good ammo plus they don't end up in my lawn and get hit by the lawn mower and smash windows etc.

@Redcoat-Dammit,always being screwed over...Maybe I can get one of my friends to buy a heap of paintballs as some of them have Gun licences and would be able to get the paint balls.

@MrCrowley-n=None of those links work sorry,how much would shipping be you think?

Sorry, try 'em now.

Dunno i'd say $20 max for 500 paintballs.

I'm eyeing up those 2500 paintballs for $30, awesome deal who cares if they're average-poor quality, a paintball is a paintball the odd few may burst but I can live with that.

Yeh that 2500 for $30 is tempting. There all .68 cal and some are in poor condition and others in good and between but who cares!They are all going to end up the same way eventually.

Thanks for those links I'm really considering buying them.

I had a look around,and wow. 150,000 paintballs.Although I do like the idea of getting them off that site I am looking for a place to buy them in Australia and then not needing such large shipping costs and distances and customs coming down on my ass.

Yeah, there could be some mass-importer that sells them without asking for credentials. I'm surprised eBay.au doesn't have any.

Oh and trademe is a trusted site btw, like eBay. I use it heaps and haven't had any problems, it's just the shipping cost that'll suck your wallet dry.

Hey that could be someones next prodject. Homemade paintballs or homemade reballs. The Kid is right. in Colorado you need to be 18 to buy anything that has to do with paintball. But the paintball feilds will let us buy anything ( exept the gun)

I believe you aren't even allowed to take any CO2 home with you from the fields in NSW. You probs will be able to take paintballs home with you if you have a license to own a paintball gun.
