You are probably aware that you should practice a lot, to get in shape for anything. When we are talking about shooting games, or for shooting in general, precision is the main thing, but no one can be extremely strict at the beginning. The talent is one thing, but long and hard practice can do miracles.

People often consider paintball only as one of the shooting games, but other people like to be good in everything, even if it’s about playing, so they put an effort to become skilled in it. If you are one of those people who like to improve their paintball shooting, the answer is the same – a lot of practice. The difference is that in this case, while you are practicing, you are having great fun, so the effort seems inconsiderable. The practice works best with a friend, but if you can’t find one, interested for it, you can do it by yourself as well.

The first step for practicing shooting with a paintball gun, is shooting at a stetted up target. This is a great way to start, but after that you should continue with more hard challenges. Shooting at a target includes changing positions - shooting while on one knee, behind targets, while on your belly – you should practice from any position you could find yourself in on the paintball field. You’ll probably want to take a few shots, to give yourself an idea of the angle.

Next step is practicing shooting at a target while you are running. Many times you’ll need to avoid hitting with something while you are running, which involves some type of lateral or side to side movement. Practicing these things you'll have a better idea how your paintball gun performs on the paintball field.

Your shooting while running is ok, so the next step is practicing shooting at a moving target. For this you will probably need your friend, or some person that you have found on the field, willing to practice as well. You two can make a deal to take turns shooting at each other, which is also great practice.

Next move of this practice is to have some one-on-one matches from a distance with your friend. Probably, this is the best practice you can get, and it will be also very useful if you set up some obstacles and practice shooting at each other. This can turn into a bigger challenge announcing a winner. The winner can be determinated by whoever had the least amount of paint on him, at the end of the match.

Practice will definitely help you to become better in these shooting games, but on other hand, it’s not always practical going out to the paintball field. This requires a lot of free time, scheduling and of course money. In these cases you can improvise, and you can do this practice in your backyard or in some field that is most near to your place. Here you can also take some target practice, adding a few twists and variations.
