You must remember that your paintball gun fires its projectile in an arch. If I sighted my marker in at 50 yards, I would miss headshots at 25 because the trajectory of the paintball would be high at 25 yards... because to hit a target at 50 means that you must LOB the paintball to it. At the height of the paintballs trajectory, you may very will shoot over the heads of other players.
Sight in at a distance where the apex of the paintball is just a few inches high. I sight in at 25 yards / 75 feet. I can put my dot on anything within that range and be certain of a hit without having to hold my dot BELOW my target. Past 25 yards I need to start aiming above their heads.
