In a similar vein, best trick I ever learned for filling tubes.

Take an old stock feedneck and shove a CCI feedgate on the end, attach a nice hopper, say Rotor to the top. Just jam the tube in and its filled automatically, feedgate holds the rest in.

Can confirm - the winner will get nice stuff.

Tip: Don't be afraid to move. Don't be afraid, period. But always be willing to move. Movement wins games. Moving backwards can be the best move - don't ignore that option.

I'm in!

I'm not a good player by any means, but one thing I've learned is to keep moving. If I see an opponent and I know they've seen me too, I don't pop out in the same place twice. I try to go around the other side of the bunker, or pop out higher or lower. I am still a terrible shot, so it doesn't really help me get kills, but I find I stay alive longer.

Sounds like you need to try out a Drop10 loader adapter, my friend PM me your address and I'll send you one.

Best tip/trick I've got (and something most here will already know) is to learn to shoot off-hand (ie: left for righties, right for lefties). If you're a rightie, like most of the world, and try to shoot out of the left side of a bunker with your right hand, you'll have a much larger profile, and be far more likely to get hit. I've gotten so comfortable shooting with my left that I think I slightly prefer it now.

My top is a response and just goes to show how different philosophy can be between players.

p.s. I still suck.
I play pump 90% of the year. I bring a 50 rd Winchester on to the field, with 3, 50 round pods on my back. I shoot at everything. Take those long shots, learn the air currents, learn how velocity and humidity affect flight, and especially perfect your ballistic arcs. Making a cross field shot takes no more time than a snapshot up close. You take the shots available to you, and you'll never make a shot that you don't take. I love to shoot! It's incredibly satisfying. The wonder of my youth at watching a stream of balls from my gun has been replaced by the satisfaction of connecting on ridiculous corner to corner shots or single hits on guys diving into the snake.

Finally, play with both hands equally and travel light. It's a long day and we are getting old.

This may apply more to speedball, but when you're outmanned and down to 2-3 guys, communicate so that you're each shooting across the field. Spread out as far across the field as you can to prevent anyone from coming around and getting an angle.

Angles. You can hide in the middle of an open field if you put angles to good use and master them.

I learned to keep my muzzle downrange all the time - running, hiding, whatever - to get that shot off faster when I needed to.

The arms length from the bunker one is handy too. Helps with tip number 1.
