ok, after a quick search i couldn't find anything on this. What do you guys recommend for basic, stay in shape for when the fields melt out, training? I have about 1/2 to 3/4 of an acre to practice on, There is a small valley that i target practice on. its maybe 70-90 ft across. I do some shooting for accuracy improvement, i was wondering if there was any thing to practice any other aspects of the game that is cheap and easy to do? FYI the longest shot i could make with out hitting tree's or neighbors is probity 150 ft. which leaves little room for advancing up and doing long range.

Practice making well placed shots when you are out of breath. Do some running around with all your gear, until you are out of breath and then try to make some shots on a predetermined target. Once you get good at it, try targets that are farther and farther away.

Also work on snap shooting. Have a friend set up a number of targets and move up and practice that way. Constantly change the locations so that you do not get used to a set pattern.

I'll have to try the out of breath shoot. The snap shooting is a good idea to.But as luck would have it , both my tanks are dry and i'm an hour and a half from the nearest field where i can get it filled.

i usualy run before i start playing again... 2 miles every day since it got warm here

it helps with your endurance, and when you can have more energy, you're gona get less tired, and make less stupid mistakes

just like driving, you make stupid mistakes when you get tired

(i'm repeating myself, but) train with airsoft pistols. the close range, limited rate of fire, and small mag size force you to use a lot of tactics.

Try doing a few pushups everday. It doesn't take long and it can help you feel more comfortable when lifting you marker. You can also run. Having a good endurance can really help your game. Try running in all your gear and with your gun, that way you can get used to it more. Also try doing runs while attempting to keep your marker level, that way you don't have to shoot but you can work at having a stable firing platform to shoot from. Also try carrying you marker with the opposite hand, since you don't have air you can't target practice but you can still get used to the feel of holding the marker switch.
