I'm seeing a trend that Speedball Broke up...

Okay,

If this has been brought up (like 20 years ago), forgive me...I was just thinking about this the other day and it bothered me a little bit.

So I went online and looked at some pictures of people shooting real weapons either for fun, hunting, or tactical purposes...they all have a hand position in common. Pump players hold their markers in a similar fashion to those shooting real weapons, but electro players (along with semi) shoot with a different form....I'm wondering if you guys think this might have some impact on the infamous debate (pump shooting more accurate than semi).

Discuss among yourselves...

Who is the hot chick with the rifle!

I do not hold an electro over my shoulder!

I think that when you have one shot (pump play), you know your marker better, have paint matching the barrel, snap shoot and know were the paint is going when you pull the trigger, more movement and only make shots you think you can hit...playing electro/semi, you miss, just pull the trigger again!

Only newbs hold a marker like your "speedball example". Most newbs don't pump. Edit now that I re-look at the pics,looks like you are talking about the for-grip?

I know but I play semi like I play pump...Dm7 or DM9 with perfect paint to barrel match, snap shooting, everything in a similar fashion....yet I 1 ball people like whoa with the pump and the semi results are slightly worse...i dunno. I was just thinking stability of that front hand flat instead of vertical.

I dunno, depends on the person. I think overall a front vertical grip properly used is a more stable firing platform, but that's just me. I can't stand a normal "pump" handle.

Way back in like 98,99 that shoulder method was the "speedballer" type of holding technique. I remember doing it but always wondering why

I think in firearms it's an issue of recoil control.

You don't have that in paintball obviously. As to why you are more accurate with a pump, I would go with the horizontal grip pointing better in your hands. It varies person to person. I do find that horizontal grips point better in my hands. I can 1-ball like no other with my Pro/Carbine. Can't do that with my Spyders.

i think he's referring to hand position. If that's the case then i counter with this.

It's just the turret method where as you hold the marker up enough to clear the cover, expose just enough of your face to see where the balls are hitting and adjust fire accordingly.

With limited rounds not really ideal but with a max size hopper...

Will never be my style though. I'd rather blast ghetto style than go that direction, unless I'm sitting behind a ring mount M2 and taking nasty incoming fire.

As for mag grip/forehand shooting, that's personal preference, although with a fore hand it is a bit quicker to sweep the barrel due to a bit more leverage, than a mag grip. The same can be said for recoil rise compensation.

Foregrips on real firearms because you can fire more easily while running. Thats why alot of special forces have forgrips. My 2cents
