some people do judge by the flow, which is good for distance shots, but now most tournaments are actually determined by snapshots rather than the "spray and pray" technique. now the stock guns actually do shoot straight for as far as 20yds (ie 2003 Shocker)
but really once youve had a gun for a while you get so in tune with it that you can aim it without a hitch, and after playing the sport for a while you can aim just about any gun.
for instance my spyder is so upgraded that I can hit things better w/it than I can w/my tourney gun sometimes.

I started out with a gun that was slated as the loudest paintball gun ever made... and they even made a sound AMPLIFIER for it that you put on the end of the barrel. I had a cheapo daisy red dot sight (the kind that you could see the led glowing inside it) on it and that gun only got used in indoor CQB... the loudness of it was awesome to scare the crap outta your opponents. I used the red dot very effectively. People at Duck's blind indoor paintball used to tell all the newcomers "if you look down one of the long halls and see a glowing red dot... its too late, Chicago's got ya" (Chicago used to be my call-sign)
Then I got another marker, I cant remember what it was called, It was from a small company, it was their only gun. Later on I think Brass Eagle bought the design, put a bottom line on it and called it the Mirage. Anyway, with this gun, and a 3-9 power simmons shotgun scope, I was the dread of all in our scenario games. Using my scope on that gun, I had more 1 shot kills than I can count. Along with the appropriate "you little piece of #$&%" out of my opponents mouths. I would only shoot about 300 rounds in a day, and get more kills than those who shot a case.
From there I got a traccer pump, added a venturi bolt, an externally rifled 14 inch barrel, a 50 round loader and the Simmons scope. Took the pump handle off and just used the handle bolts as a bolt action rifle.
No one could understand how I did as well as I did, only shooting so few rounds a day. My reply ALWAYS was "by aiming BEFORE I shoot"
Paintball can be accurate... if you use the right paint, chosen for its roundness and consistent size, rather than by price or color.

And I know what ya mean bout the minimal usage of paint, im pretty cheap so I use mid grade paint and only shoot bout 800 rounds in a regular full day, and my paintball claim to fame is my snapshot, and if you can snapshoot well then you can dominate any speedball field, im not that good just yet ;) but yea its cool to be able to school people game after game and leave the field with some money still in your pocket, except for tourney's, then it all hangs loose.

Those 3 man tourneys rocked... Picture this.
An old hotel in a downtown area. 2 floors, 144 rooms, 6 foyer style stairwells 12 long hallways and all the doors removed from the hinges (for safety)
6 teams playing CTF at the same time, in the same field, every team for itself. 3 flag stations at the back of the building in the second floor foyer of the stairwells. 3 flag stations at the front of the building on the ground floor foyer of the stairwells. You start at a different flag station every round, with no previous knowledge of which flag station your flag is at... you gotta search all 5 flag stations to find your flag, then return it to where you started. All with 5 other teams doing the same.
I really loved that place. :mellow:
