This is Robert Stewart with Hill13.com. The
next drill we’re going to talk about is arguably one of the most important. And that is snap
fire. Snap fire means you snap the weapon from a down position to an up position, either
at the hip or at the shoulder. And you very rapidly take three targets and fire on each
of those three in order. Doesn’t matter the order. The key is you’re learning to bring
the weapon, point, when you’re on the field your weapon should be up. But even if it’s
down, you should be able to bring your weapon up to your first target and rapidly go through
three targets. You drill on this to get your hand eye coordination tight, so that you become
really effective when you’re on the move against an opponent. So the way this is going to work
is, you are going to fire on one target, fire on another target, fire on another target.
End of drill. This is a drill you should do a lot. You should spend 500 to 1000 paint
balls at the range, on your local field and really get a sense of how your gun handles
and what your aim is like. That’s going to also tell you a little bit about what kind
of player you are. Are you a close quarter’s player? Are you a long baller? But snap fire
training is essential. Now I’m going to demonstrate to you a couple of examples of snap fire drills.
