Questions for Dave Bains thread

Hey guys
I know we keep dropping the ball on this.
I will do my best to answer all the question. I'll ask Matt and Justin to jump on also.
Thank you for all the support you have given us..

help running and shooting

how do i stop myself from "bouncing" up and down when i run and shoot? i know my body is translating alot of impact upwards when i step.

i'm not sure, but i think i've isolated it to not lifting my knees up, but more kicking at the knee when i step..it feels really ackward.

what do you guys do to practice this and get the technique down- its easy to say just keep doing it, but if your doing it incorrectly, you'll just keep doing it incorrectly.

kind of confusing, but thank you very much, in advance!

Great question
Alot has to do with muscle control.
Though your stride might be the problem dont over look your shoulders and arms.
If the gun Is not stable in your arms no matter how your stride is it will bounce.

Can I have an autographed taco?

A serious question now. When I snapshoot, my leg tends to stick out a bit. If I don't do that, I'm very off balance and end up nearly falling over.
Any advice?

It's all about muscle control.
Have you tried squatting a little lower to make a more stable base?

First off, don't over think stuff. When you are going out there, have you ever had a teammate watch you to see what you are doing? Some of the teams up at my field have someone videotaping their practices, drills, that they then watch to give themselves a better view of what they are doing right/what they are doing wrong.
Try this.

Hey Dave, its Rohit, the kid that moved from NY to Pleasant Hill.

I never would have guessed you were Indian too haha.
So how long have you played paintball for? do you prefer Xball or 7man? And what is your strategy for winning a 1v2 or 1v1 and closing the point?

100% punjabi
Ive been playing for about 10 years.
I love both formats. As for winning 1v1 or 1v2 sadly I have a losing record for those.

Yeah, but to be stable I have to get down fairly low. Then my thighs start to get stiff after snap-shooting for 30 seconds.. Maybe thats why I get the snake side so much!

It's the last thing that you pick up on. We have learned some key phrases and are starting to get more commands at every tournament. It's especially hard when the coaches or players get excited and start screaming very fast.

As a new player the key is getting as much game time as you can.
I know money is tight but nothing beats tournament experience.
Always try to jump in with better players it helped me out alot .

I still can't believe how long some of my teammates can drill for.
It takes time.

How are you?
Do well in school and eat your vegetables.
As for deciding how much paint to carry. I can never let anyone on my team carry more than me. It's a pride thing I guess. Zack had 11 pods so I took 12.
