Practice. That's it. Sit at home while watching tv and hold your marker in you hands. Snap shoot in a direction away from where you are looking. Then move your head in behind it to see how well on aim you were. I used to do that on nights off when i was bored. Can really help you get general aim down. Just snap and point. Then see how off or on target you were. You will get better with time. And this will translate over to the field.

Keep the marker snug to your body. Move your body and not your feet when coming out.

do situps and other "core" exercises.

Keeping your feet in place and leaning from side to side is all dependent on how strong your abdominal and oblique muscles are. If they're not strong, then you'll get really tired really quick, lose your balance, and want to fall over.

So.... find some exercises on "strengthening your core" on like... mens health dot com or something.... pilates is good for this stuff too.... and try some of them out for a while, or incorporate them into a paintball practice, with your gun.




Also, lower your center of gravity. Bend your knees... go youtube some dynasty stuff, and you'll see most of them have near-perfect stances for paintball.




...and practice. Practice in front of a mirror, practice with trees, your couch.... anything, really.

Thats just a good all around athletic stance. . . Pro paintballers becoming athletes, what?

I use a mirror a LOT like Goldy mentioned.

When you're actually snapping don't watch your shot(s). Pop out, fire, and pop back in.

I like to keep my tank more centered on my chest. It keeps my elbows in, reducing my profile. I turn my hopper in so it isn't exposed. I look over the outside part of my marker, so as I'm coming out, I can peek, bring the marker into play, and get the shot(s) off. Works well for me. Pic in my avatar is a BAD example. I hardly ever put the tank high in my shoulder.
