Some people will probably disagree but I think speed and accuracy trump form. IMO it's better to hang your hopper out for a split second and get off an accurate shot than to slow yourself down trying to maintain an unnatural up-and-down position behind the bunker. A good shooter can pick a small target if he has time but he can't hit a target that isn't there anymore. To a certain degree this is the concept behind roll snapping.

Of course you have to know what you can and can't get away with, in terms of having to play "tight."

The method from One with the Gun that works well for me. It's based on keeping the gun and your posture in about the same stance/position and after each snap, you adjust your aim a little based on your previous shot. It means you don't relax, you adjust and shoot at em. But each time you lean out, you're ready to shoot so it can get pretty quick.

Go to Youtube, check out Sonny lopez's Pump tactics. Short but helpful vids.

when i practice snapping i always use a small tree as a bunker and shoot cans sitting on top logs about 30 or so feet away from me
some other advice is footwork/stance you always want to be comfortable where you are and you want to be able to move if needed dont get yourself into a spot where you cant move or get out the way
another bit of advice is staying as low profile as possible, elbow in, only come out where you can just see your target and where your paintball is going to go dont come a foot out of the bunker like some people do when i see that i thank they are just asking for you to put one in their mask or chest, i recomend to look how and perfect russian leagions snap shooting drills they kinda flick their marker out while still keeping their hopper behind a bunker, trust me this works really well

Find a friend and two trees and around 30 feet away from each other and just keep stationary and try to get each other out, It's helped my accuracy and I feel practicing when someone's shooting at you, You learn a lot faster

Totally agree with this, helps snap shooting immensely. Better yet though, play with two actual bunkers with an electro shooting at you, it'll help you play tighter to your bunker while forcing you to snap in/out faster.
