Sometimes what I like to do is just take me gun with no barrel or anything and walk it while I'm watching tv, I think it helps. haha I also have to work on my left hand.

go for consistency instead of speed. Walk the trigger as slowly as possible, one finger on the trigger and the other should be in the air or touching the trigger guard. this will build up co-ordination and muscle memory. SLOWLY start to speed up little by little. The speed will come with practice once you can consistently walk the trigger.


oh, and Sticky Video!



around 1:50 it starts getting good

Practice doing it. Thats all you need to do. I used to be able to pull 17bps on my right and 15 bps on my left. Then everything I played was ramp so now I can barely pull 13bps semi on both. Keep practicing semi on both hands. It will help in the long run. Not to mention being able to properly play both sides of the field will make you stand out at lower levels.

I never really needed to practice walking the trigger just because I play guitar, bass, and piano. Trust me, it helps a TON

Word ^ and I dot walk the trigger unless I'm on semi... But I use PSP and I simultaneously use my pointer and middle to press the trigger... Watch the damage 30 m practice by social paintball. In the first round u can see Timmy propst doing it. It's easier.

what i used to do, when i started working on my left hand, at home, watching tv or whatever, take a rubber band, and wrap it around your trigger fingers, slowly start walking them on something (leg, table, etc.)with the band losely wrapped around them, as time goes by, keep tightning the band up, and you wil notice that you will be faster. just my .02 cents, it worked for me

same here no clue why. what i did to learn to shoot lefty was just play all day that way. run to the side of the field that forces you to shoot lefty. even if you are shooting out the right side of your bunker shoot left handed. as far as getting faster i know 3 good tricks that worked for me. type with your pb gloves on, walk your finger on a desk or arm of the couch or something that's nearby and wrap a rubber band around your fingers loosely then tighter as it gets more comfortable. hope this helps.

The best way is to just practice. Adjust your trigger the way YOU like it and keep practicing with your full set up.

Best thing to do is just walk the trigger slowly while watching tv. As mentioned above. Build up mucle memory then try to build up speed.
