    would any one be interested in a paintball car boot/table top sale?

    Like find a place say once a year at the end of the season.

    Get all your team unused or old gear for sale at decent prices?

    Say the site owner charged a fiver or with free practice on top of the car boot?

    Would you come check it out or sell stuff?

    This is just an idea of if people would like it and if it's worth doing.

    There have been a few of these over the years at scenario events etc

    On that basis it was just publicised as an option on the event as at anytime there are 2 or more paintballers in one place there is the chance of some trading

    I’m sure any walk-on, or event would be happy for that sort of thing on an existing site day, those who have sup-air facilities etc may be open for doing it as you’ve described as a car boot plus the option to play - but of course if it’s an option to play then they don’t know if it’s worth bringing in x number of marshalls and setting up fields

    Not sure that it would. Nobody seems to be buying markers lately, unless they are stupidly cheap. Time of the year and all that.

    That said, I'd come and take a look.

    Might be worth trying at CPPS, but since everyone and their cat is "sponsored" these days all you might get are tyre kickers and no buyers. Holding it at a customer site might get a better response.

    not really about markers could be any thing like teams bringing old stuff down for new guys to start playing.

    Ill have a word with Ainsley see if I can get some thing sorted in the off season.

    this way gives the teams money in the pocket for kit deals with the shops and new guys some cheap kit to play.

    Supports the industry and the players.

    I like the idea of both the car boot, and the idea of an open practice along with it.

    car boot sales do not support the industry. They hurt the industry. Don't kid yourselves.
