Running and gunning?

I need help with my running and gunning. Anyone know some drills, tips, tricks. Anything to improve it, I've watched some videos on YouTube and it helped a little. But still not as good as I'd like. So if you have any tips. Share them with me.

I'd say take what you learned from the videos and drill it over and over. That's the only way to really improve. And if it's helped a little already then practice can only help more.

Try to record yourself, so you can see how you look when you are running and gunning. For me, I usually just start off the break and run and gun to a corner while shooting back at home. Of course this can be done without any bunkers too.

Knees should be bent and if you are running to the right, your right foot should be facing the direction you are running. Bent knees while running will help stabilize the gun from bouncing around.

I live in the suburbs and can't always make it to a field to practice or shoot tons of paint in the backyard without pissing off the crazy old cat-lady who lives behind me. I usually grab two glasses of water, one for each hand, and hold them similarly to how I would my marker. I then try to run across the yard as fast as I can without spilling the water. It helps keep your upper body steady as you move, but is no replacement for actually shooting.

^^ agreed with knees. Bending your knees helps u more or less��"speedwalk" as opposed to run. Keepsur hips and shoulders aligned. Legs facing direction of travel but looking at target. Keep elbows tight and press tank firmly to shoulder pocket\chest. Quick leg steps. Sorry its a sporadic response but in a hurry haha

Greg Siewers from Huston Heat promotion video called, "1st phorm action drills." Drills start at 35 seconds:

I saw this online today, basically, you put a target/board/anything somewhere in an open space. Then you just walk in an arc/circle around it and you shoot it, perhaps you could have bunkers in the way and you shoot around them.

Have you actually noticed any sort of improvement in your play from this?

Idk what tank you have but the longer your tank, it makes it easier to run and gun accurately

Set the bar high.
Hang a tennis ball from a string in your back yard. Run and gun - one balling at the target. Increase your distance from the target as your proficiency increases. If you can hit the tennis ball, you can hit a bad guy.
