07 May 2008 - 08:06 PMI try to figure out every single possible shooting lane, mine and thiers, from what direction they may come from, and where I can go if I need to make a getaway. (Kinda like Bondurant driving school but with paintball, for those who know what I'm talking about) I also just sti still and watch for even the slightest movement, try to keep your head down but make sure you can see everything. WATCH Your Flanks, this is the #1 mistake I see people make while waiting for an ambush. (I got shot it the butt once not paying attention haha) If you know the closest enemy player is pretty far (if you're playing defence I guess) check your gear: Make sure nothing is snagged, everything is set and attached, and for god's sake make sure the safety is unlocked (off) haha. I hope this helps some. Sometimes i sing the Airborne Ranger's cadences or repeat the Marine Rifleman's creed in my head...
I understand this isn't for paintball but I still mouth it while I'm wating, Support Our Troops!
Marine Rifleman's Creed
This is my rifle; there are many like it but this one is mine. My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My rifle without me is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter then my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will… My rifle and myself know that what counts in war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, nor the smoke we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit… My rifle is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its strengths, its weaknesses, its parts, its accessories, its sights, and its barrel. I will ever guard it against the ravages of weather and damage. I will keep my rifle clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will… Before God, I swear this creed. My rifle and myself are the defenders for my country. We are the masters of my enemy. We are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but peace. Amen!
Hope this helps and gives you guys (n' girls) something to do while your waiting
17 March 2008 - 08:08 PMI may be there, I was planning on the game on March 16th at Fox Paintball but I got miserably sick so the 2 cases of Marbs are in my room. CPX is FPO and I cant afford to buy 2 MORE cases of Marbs within a few weeks! I'll give them a call later... Looks like it will be a great game, anyone know what the theme will be? This'll be myself and my dad's first scenario so I hope it turns out awsome.
17 March 2008 - 05:35 PMWhat i think are the basics to a good sniping mod
#1 Paint to barrel match ( I find Marbs and a .688 barrel bore to be great)
#2 Good Barrel, no not some 22" one, I have a 14" and a 10" from J&J, good length plus a shorter one for CQB if needed
#3 Camo; from this on, pretty much everything is less important. I've been paintballing for a good few years now and i still use my stock A-5 sight
#4 Stock; Easier to line up shots plus the ability to steady your shot better
#5 Sight; I dont use one but if i would get one it would be a decent red dot sight, NO scopes guys, unless you use it for recon but mount it on the side of a red dot sight then.
Kinda what i go by, just a basic guideline in my opinion i guess.
17 March 2008 - 05:28 PMThe overall setup looks nice, I might recommend an air-through stock, and red dot sight, but I think it looks great.
I use an A-5 for also, and with good paint to barrel match it is plenty accurate.
Yea, I'm looking into the dogleg stock but I'm sick and havent been out to try the new setup other then in the basement this year, then I'll decide on what stock and if i need any optics. Paint to barrel is a perfect Marb to .688 J&J bore kit Any reccomended optics?
12 March 2008 - 09:36 PMMaybe its just the drugs in the cough medicine , but I dont get it and I dont see how its creepy Ill take another look tomarrow morning/
