Why so many broken balls? That certainly can't help getting paint on target.


It was the weather

you haven't experienced cold until you've been in Tampa when it's 61 degrees

it'll freeze your goatee off



hahaha true! but it was also some crappy practice paint from a long time ago...

austin............ i would like to thank you for helping Mike out. He was very anxious about the 1 vs 1 with me, now you have given him that shred of confidence he needed to actually get to the start gate.... bless him he will miss his sock hat :)



hahaha no problem, i had some fun out there.

Wow man. I have played with semi pro players and d1 players in snap shooting drills just like this one, and it's tough! he's really good.


thats the best way to get better, always play the more challenging team/person. you will learn alot faster. and i bet you wont make he same mistake more than 2 or 3 times with the better guys :P

I learned watching him switch which hand he's shooting from. Very smooth and fast. I've been trying to figure out if it's better to switch hands, then tank shoulder or vice versa.


its more of a preference thing, no one is going to walk up and tell you your doing it wrong. do whatever is most comfortable and fastest with you. you dont have to be t the field to do these things. dont be embarassed to pick your gun up and walk around your house practicing, thats how i learned. you can find a drill to do at your house for about anything you need work on... if your not sure what kind of stuff to do just post what you have problems with and ill do my best to come up with something to help you out.

that vid was just what i needed. Hey Austin do you have anymore drill I can do to build up my gun fighting skills


one thing i find pretty helpful in getting your accuracy down is getting behind whatever bunker you want to snap out of and come out on any object like a pole, cone, paint box or whatever you can find. just remember to start out nice and slow in the beginning. accuracy is key, so if your not hitting it your goin to fast. once you hit the target concistantly 3 or times in a row you can slowly speed it up.

good luck bro, practice makes perfect ;)
