When I first heard of the concept of a paint mine I thought sounded awsome. Mainly because it would be easy to make a homemade one. Just recently me and my local field owner who I am currently working for, ordered in 4 of these mastermines in preparation for an upcoming scenario game. We ordered so few in hopes that we could replicate them with pvc. First things first they are a lot smaller than they look. If you ever buy one I recomend testing it a few times to figure out how to aim them effectively. One problem we noticed right off is that there is no way that it could effectivally cover a 600 sq ft area. Well, to make a long story short this mine is way to expensive for how little you are getting. You want my advice, just figure out how to make your own mine. They spray more and its cheaper.
Too expensive for what your getting. Hence bigger is better.
Actually, you CAN get 600 sq. ft of "coverage" but that's a misleading truth. If you angle the nozzles JUST right with a brim-full Mine on a warm day, and fire it in the right place (Say, a test location like a parking lot or hangar, no overhead obstacles & a flat floor), you can then measure the area upon which paint has impacted, and find a space 20 feet long by 30 wide. 20X30=600 square feet. So, the claim IS true - but not in a way you'd likely be able to use in a game.
