It takes too long to think. Practice snap shooting.

I used a ghost ring for a little bit, the only problem was that because of how I tilt the gun, the balls were landing on the outside edge of the ring, vs. right on the post. If you keep your gun straight as you snap, you wont have issue, but if you're used to tucking a hopper into the bunker, it probably wont work out as well.

actually for those who are accustomed to flashing sight picture having the ring on the target area is also very reflexive and they shoot really consistently and quickly.

It is all a matter of which method works best for the individual.

I tilt and aim down the side in most cases, but I use a red dot on top to target long shots or to hit players through very small gaps. If you're tilting the gun to sight along the barrel it doesn't really matter if there's a sight on top or not. The first way is faster and generally gets me the shots I want, but the red dot means I know I will make the shot. That said, even with a red dot or a ghost ring you still need to practice for different distances to get used to the arc of the paintball and how it changes as you shoot deeper into a 12ie - same as you do for sighting down the side of the barrel.

tl;dr Use both and practice.

Yes practice snap shooting! Shoot a case to get your muscle memory going. If you really want more precise stuff get a red dot. I also shoot with my middle finger and my index finger naturally extends along the trigger frame so it looks like I'm pointing. That way is just point and shoot. Comfy for me too. Stitch is correct most players will find a happy style to shoot and it will work. Some people cant shoot sights or rings, some people can.

I always use an Armosn OEG sight when playing. I used to shoot no sight when I first started for about 3 years. I can still shoot fine with no sight though.40% of my team have started to convert to Reflex sights or red dots recently. But our best player still shoots no sight no ring and can instinct shoot with insane accuracy. He spent time and cases worth of paint shooting at tiny targets in his back yard.

I just put my nose against the back of the marker and look at what I want to shoot. Works well for me. Actually, I do this with all my guns

point your finger on the pump handle at your target...your brain will line it up faster than you can process "im aiming"

Bigballa - that works until you shoot an autococker without a beavertail.

I used to use my thumb when i used my over-cocking handle. It was just how i held the grip. Now that i have an under-cocking barrel pump i shoot more with reflex. I just haven't perfected the technique yet. I changed my setup again with a t-stock and ghost and it feels like i'm limiting myself, but i will try it again to see if i like it or not. It just feels like i can't get into tighter positions with the stock.
