With XT's business model, the players also spend 45 minutes getting kitted up and sitting through the safety breifing, so they're usually there for 1.5 - 2 hours, and that's enough for most people. Besides, your first 4 mags of ammo are also included in the price, as is the rental of all the gear (helmet, eye protection, tac vest, gun + battery, 4 mags). I haven't heard anyone complain about the prices, especially since most folks tend not to burn through tons of extra ammo - 4 mags (280 rounds) in 45 minutes is usually enough if you don't go hog-wild on full auto.

Muffin's right about the level of volunteerism, too. There's a regular crew of guys who will show up and help load mags or distribute gear or help in other ways for nothing more than the opportunity for a little play and some bb's + gas. A little elbow grease is a free fix for the mid-week jonesing to play.
