raking/walking

Can anyone tell me the diffence between raking and walking. I no walking the trigger is moving your two fingers like a man walking. Not to sure about raking. Also which is harder to do and do you recommend a new player to learn rake or walk first or is this just a personal preference where you can do one or the other.

Raking is when you take your pointer finger and move it up and down the trigger. works best with non flat/curve triggers.

i think walking the trigger is a lot easier and will let you shoot a lot faster, but i guess its a preference thing, for i have seen both

Learning to walk the trigger is going to be the way to go. I have yet to see anybody rake a trigger. Raking is when your move your finger up and down the trigger and as it hits the different bumps in the trigger that causes the trigger to push in and fire, instead of directly pulling the trigger. I've out of boredom tried doing this a little bit just to try it and have had little to no luck. Walking is by far your way to go.

raking only works well with triggers with a sharp hump in the middle, like the one on a karnivor...i could do it on that gun just as fast if not faster than i could walk it.

but raking the trigger is very impractical, because your hand is basically sticking straight out the side, so your arm will be hanging out and make an easy target. walking the trigger is much better, you have a tigher profile, and your hand is actually holding the gun.

Practice walking whenever you can; it becomes a fun, productive way of passing time in waiting rooms or when you have don't need to pay full attention to something, like lectures.
