Question on Running & Shooting

Sorry if this has been asked before, but search is not available right now;

In the Facefull 32 article on running and shooting, there is the drill listed that involves shooting a stationary target while moving in a square. The part that I find unclear is what orientation you are to take in relation to the target.

My first impression was that when you move, you face in the direction you are running, and twist your upper body to line up with the target. However, when doing this, it is almost impossible on the one "wall" of the square, when you are moving away from the target. You have to twist your upper body almost right around. It almost seemed that you couldn't shoot while running this one section, but from my understanding of the article, you weren't supposed to stop shooting.

The other option that came to mind was that you were to run the circuit of the square, keeping your whole body oriented towards the target, running forwards, side to side, then backwards. However, to me this makes no sense. I never run backwards, and I don't think I've ever seen it with the exception of one or two rookie games.

I get the impression that there is something I am missing. If someone from RL, or even someone who has attended a clinic and learned firsthand, could clear this up, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

This drill is not done in a circle, you do it in a square. On the last part of the square, when your coming back to the starting spot, you walk semi fast backwards.

There is a technique to the walking...that is also in the article.

Also, Alex said the backwards part of the square doesn't really matter because you don't really go backwards in a game.

When my team does run and gun, we usually run tapeline and stop shooting once we pass the other 40.

yeah, if you shoot the guy when your running, you shouldnt have to turn and look/run backwards


it wouldnt make sense to do so, because you still have other guys you need to kill after finishing the firs run through

you should never have to run backwards in paintball
