Special protocol can also allow you to give 6-year-old youngsters a taste of REAL low impact paintball that is sure to stimulate business. Special game safety and marker handling requirements will be demonstrated… and these special procedures are very popular with apprehensive parents who check out your Facebook page because their children want a paintball birthday party.

Invite customers to come in for a special class where you will teach them how to convert their own marker using a new MCS/RAP4 kit that they purchase from you. Their new marker can easily be converted back and forth for use in traditional hopper games as well as mag-fed and sniper games (with long range shaped projectiles).
