Something I am trying to do at Stonewall Paintball is to make sure everyone is happy with their paintball experience. I am doing that by trying to give the best customer service possible, having the best prices of any paintball field in Virginia, having the best field in the area, and having a good selection of new and used equipment to buy.
I think we are doing very well on customer service, price, and having a great field. Stonewall still needs to work on having good selection of equipment for sale. I have been trying to make sure we have the best equipment for rent, but we are still going through guns and masks that were here when the field was purchased. We have about 40 new guns, 30 new masks, 50 new tanks, and we have a bunch of new pods and packs for rent. I think we have some room to grow in the rental equipment area, but overall I think we have great stuff.
What I would like to do is have new and used equipment for sale that people can buy if they are looking at getting into the hobby of paintball. A reason to own your own gear is simple, you will take care of it and it will be the way you like it when you come out to play. A simple set up, with mask, gun, and tank will cost, at the low end, about $200. If you rent equipment from me you are paying $42. If you really like paintball and you are going to play even 5 times a year it would cost $210,the same as renting it each time.
I would like everyone know they can get the best equipment at the lowest prices at the field. For example I will have Grill masks, normally about $90, for much less at the field. Empire Axe paintball guns, normally around $500, for much less. I have a gun in stock called the Dye Rized Maxxed, it normally retails at around $350. There is another gun called the BT-4 G36 elite, that I think looks pretty cool, it is authentic looking and a woodsball marker that can shoot 15 balls per second. This one is retailing for about $350, much less at the field. I want paintball to be accessible to every budget and style of play.
I would like to help you get your first equipment for what ever style you play. One of the best purchases you can make is a good quality mask. Anyone that has played paintball knows that you cant hit what you cant see. I try to have good masks for rentals, but it is hard to keep them scratch free. If you own a good mask, prices range from $45 to over $100, you can take care of it and make sure it never gets scratched. I can get equipment from most of the paintball brands so tell your friends all over the country to contact me and I will be able to get them a great deal on anything paintball. remember do not let the prices online scare you. I can get them for much less, I just cant advertise the prices.
