I do think rentals should include at a min a working AEG, sufficient batteries to shoot all that the renter wants, loader, enough mags to suit the game(s), and you should be able to sell the guy a full bag of BBs if there aren't any for sale at the game (OR better yet...you should just let him fill up from your BBs with your loader).
If you're paying more than that....someone's more interested in making a buck off your situation vs. helping someone out.
I disagree with the "IF you break it you pay for it" approach. Either charge more up front and eat the expenses if they come up...or assume the risk if something goes wrong. Or don't rent out your stuff if you can't stomach that.
If someone puts the "You break it you bought it" pitch to you...run for the hills. And if they're offering you that deal with a beat up used Kraken...toss them a $20 and keep the gun.....'cause that's what a beat up Kraken is worth
You Make a good Point, cause I did not take in account the field fees that I have to pay, and since it's $25+HST for a day at flag raiders and if I'm paying $50 for a AEG, I just dropped $75 that I could use to invest in a AEG of my own in 3 games time if I just wait it out.
that not taking into account the money I have to spend on safety gear and a good set of Boot's (don't want to roll an ankle or that sort of shit)
