POLL: How many people practicing snap shooting at home?

I'm trying to determine how many Paintball players practice their snap shooting skills indoors. By practice I mean you get your marker with the tank on it (not turned on) and stand behind a corner and practice snapping out, maybe with a mirror as the target so you can see how much of your body is exposed.

I'm contemplating developing some training aids if there is demand for it.

Please pick an option. The Player Description helps identify your demographic. I'm curious to see if there tournament players practice so much on the field that they don't bother at home.

Guys, I'm seeing a lot more views than poll results Voting "Never" is actually really useful information as well, so please choose something.

I think he wants to see if the amount people play affects how often they practice snap shooting at home

I occasionally practice with reballs just to keep my timing right. Even if you aren't shooting your gun, you can practice good form and endurance in your house. This is especially helpful if you are in a situation where you don't get to play much - you'll want to keep those motions in your muscle memory so they come naturally when you get to the field.

If you don't have snap shooting down to a science you have no business being on a team.
Running and gunning, snap shooting, walking the field, playing X position, these should all be stuff you should master before you even think about joining a team.

A really good drill you can do to practice snap shooting is when you are watching tv, have your gun setup, and pick one character. Whenever you see that character in a new position/angle, snap shoot at him. Obviously, you don't actually shoot paint at the tv

I do it every day after I get home from work. I like to tie it into my warm ups before I work out. Fun way to get motivated and amped up before a run.

The mirror at the end of the hallway at home is great for this. Snap shooting drills at practice are much more revealing though.
