Annoying semantics, but hey.
Precision is group size. Accuracy is group position relative to the center. You want both.
However, i will agree, the greatest deciding factor in both is paint quality.
shooting a paintball gun is aiming by zen anyway. not knowing where your gun is going to place your shots is not the fault of the gun not hitting where you are aiming but knowing where to position the gun to get it to place paint where you want it to. If you're shooting a firearm and your point of impact varies greatly from the point of aim the gun is not zeroed properly. You can't zero a paintball gun. A pitcher doesn't blame the baseball for making him load the bases on walks.
