well as far as stealth goes practice sneaking up on your pigs. animals (not sure about pigs) usually have heightened senses so I would try sneaking up on them. Try a reallllll slow crawl. As far as accuracy goes if you don't want to pay for paintballs you could practice with a bb gun if you have one. Its better to get used to your guns drop but if you don't want to practice with paintballs that would be a good idea. Do you have any camo?
If you are a christian paintballer put this in your sig.

try getting some reusable paintballs, i forget what they are called but you can set up a garbage can on its side and shoot into it from different distances to work on accuracy. also just practice moving silently through the woods around your house. Do this with your mask off to start and when you feel that you are pretty quiet start again with your mask on. you will notice how hard it is to move silently with a mask on compared to having it off.
so a bush shot you?...

You could get a cheap red-dot sight as it will really help you get those first shots on target thus saving money on paint when you do play. I have also used my red-dot as a training tool in lieu of paintballs. Just turn the power on, and practice shouldering the gun from various shooting positions. The sight will let you know if you "hit" the target or missed. Do the same while running forwards, sideways and backwards. Try some snap-shooting also. Simply pick a target, go behind an object and see if you can lean out so that the red-dot is on target as soon as the barrel clears your cover. Just make sure that the sight is zeroed in properly so that it points where the gun would be shooting if you were actually shooting paintballs. Do keep both eyes open when using a sight if you end up doing this. The buy/sell section of this forum is a good place to pick one up for cheap.

I would get the velcro balls and have your friends stand close to the target and see if you can hit the target without them seeing you, but don't trust me too much. I probably wont ever really no how to train to be a sniper because in west texas there is absolutely no cover just bare dirt every where here :D

One thing that you could do is have your friends or teammate get into positions and then you have to crawl into a position that would be favorable to you for firing on them. The objective would be to do so without being seen. If they see you, you fail... If they don't see you then you succeeded

I only play September-March, but during that time, I would play 1v1 games with my brother several times a week. I did it just to play paintball but I learned more in those games than in any other game I've played. I suggest that you focus your training on stealth, concealment and develop the sniper mindset.

When I stalk, I use an old Native American technique known as the Foxwalk.

As far as concealment, There is no better way to learn what works than playing. Some rules that I follow for my concealment, Cover all shiny areas on me or my gear, don't use cover that draws the eye (A patch of trees out in the middle of a field and artificial cover just to name a few) and dont disturb wildlife or leave any evidence that your have been there.

The mindset of a sniper comes with experience along with reading and watching other snipers. You mindset should be to work with your team for the good of your team by the use of stealth, accuracy and out thinking your opponents. If your team is not there to back you up, then you can't perform.

If you really enjoy this position and want to grow in it, I would read this section of the forum as much as you can stand it and watch more experienced snipers. Just remember, You are different and you can play with your own style and tactics (as long as they fit with the rules) no matter what anyone tells you. One more thing to remember, Being a sniper is mental, You don't need a great gun or fancy paintballs. You could give the best paintball sniper a cheap gun with bad paint and he would still out perform the little kid with a 900$ gun.

You asked how you could train BETTER, so how are you training now? Getting into position is easy, you just have to make a mad sprint for you position and then dive in and remain motionless, you don't need any super fancy camouflage just remain still. Accuracy is a matter of practicing shooting, I reccomend using the paint your going to use in a game to practice with, Reballs can have a completely different flight pattern. I can explain some drills for accuracy if you would like, just let me know. Camouflage only works if your sitting still, the only advantage ghillie gives you over regular camouflage is while your slow crawling, otherwise if your sitting still with a decent blending camouflage your going to remain invisible.

Excersize:

-RUN RUN RUN! Run until you are about to die. This will increase your stamina
-Increase upper body strength with pullups, pushups, and situps. This will help with your prone belly crawling

Cheap, (but not used), equippment:

- Camel pack. You can get one from walmart. I can't tell you how many games where it takes me 2x as long to get into position because I get overly-dehydrated IN GAME.
- Go to a fabric store, buy some fabric and cut it into swaths. This will increase your ghillie density if you have one.

Training:

-Go to a heavily populated area with your ghillie. Hide in a spot where people frequent. Make sure people can't see you. Perfect places are parks near town centers. This will help you learn how to blend in, and if your ghillie is working properly

At the field:

- Only barrel tag people out in all of your games. This will teach you to remain motionless, crawl into position. It will also save you on paint.
- Only load with cigar tubes, and only if you are out. This will force you to count and aim your shots.
