    Hi all.
    I was at a day of paintball the other day on site guns and it dawned on me that i cant shoot left handed very well at all, it just doesnt comfortable, is that right or will it get more comfortable the more i do it?
    and are there any tips from everybody?

    Yours
    Matt

    practise and practise more.

    when you have nothing to do when at home, keep practising till your fingers drop off;)

    How is your profile on your right hand side? If your profile is good on the right, then practise changing sides in the mirror and try to get the same good profile on your left and your right. The more you do that the more comfortable and consistent you will be.

    spend a whole training day / walkon etc JUST playing on your left.

    It'll feel wierd but toward the end of the day you'll find you're a lot more competent :) it's just about getting used to it mate

    Think he means he couldn't shoot very well / comfortably / accurately left handed as opposed to walking the trigger mate. That's what i got from him using a "site gun" which would most likely be a mech ... Might be wrong though :)
