Left handed tips?

Hi all,

I am trying to get my left hand up to my right hand walking speeds, which is about 10-15 bps.
The issue is, I rarely have ever used my left fingers, and I am trying with the rubber band trick.

are there any other tips? I am preparing for a talent eval upcoming for a team I am interested in a few weeks here.

Also general walking/ switching tip thread haha

The best way is to just do it. While you are watching tv or anything just walk the trigger with your left hand.

If you ever do any rec days or just certain practice days, you could only use your left hand and you'll get better quick.

I think people find learning hard because they don't want to look bad doing it so they stay with what is comfortable. I learned to play lefty years ago in 1 weekend. I went out both days and played only with my left hand, no matter where I was. Yeah, it wasn't my best weekend of paintball, but by the end I was comfortable. From then on, I switched easily. I traded one weekend of playing bad for years of infinitely better play because I could switch.
Ahhh, nature. And you know what comes from nature? Onions.
