The correct term is sniping. I never like to get in the trees, because I always get lit up coming down.

It's interesting that the people who are generally on the side of no such thing as snipers in paintball are the ones who are or were in the military, or police.

n.

  1. A skilled military shooter detailed to spot and pick off enemy soldiers from a concealed place.
  2. One who shoots at other people from a concealed place

 

I.E. there are snipers in paintball. You people are thinking way into this and have watched too much TV. Sniping origins have nothing to do with how far you can shoot. It has to do with steath tactics.

Is there a sniper in the house, please? I do not remember any from my Law Enforcement days, are there any on this forum that could solve this issue?

That seems a little dubious, paintball guns have horrible ballistic qualities relative to firearms.

Eh, I think its a tactics thing. I didnt get much info on it. And I think if they're doing CQB training it wouldnt matter. Oh yea, forgot to tell you he no longer does Adv Markmanship .. he quit that 5 years ago. Probably should have mentioned that part.

No, but there is a difference between being stealthy and being inconspicuous.

As for the video just like  the guy said. It's his humble opinion. But snipers originated a long time ago, back then weapons were about as accurate as a paintball gun if not less. Not to mention it also has to do with being a skill marks man. If you read around alot of people beleive in accuracy by volume. That disqualifies you as a sniper. A skill marksmen should be able to hit a target with minimal use of ammo.

if you are trying to snipe really its sneaking up on the enemy and shooting a shoot that you know you can hit him so buy or make a very nice ghille suit and lay up against a tree or in between sticks that have fallen on the ground

I don't learn my tactics from TV. I'm not sniper qualitifed, but I do know a couple. One was a former Marine sniper instructor, the other is a former scout (and sniper) who is now in my unit. Did I mention that I have a total of 12 years in the Army and Army National Guard, most of it as an infantry (air assault and light) soldier, now a combat engineer (mechanised)? That's why I have a disdain for the wannabes who call themselves snipers.
Since you like to babble about shooting from concealed places, I guess that if during a squad or platoon ambush, if we only shot one shot each then we'd all be snipers? I guess that everytime an infantryman (or any MOS really) who uses cover and concealment could be sniper if they only shoot once, even in CQB or MOUT situations. WOW! We need to pass this on to the Infantry school at Ft. Benning, and MCB Quantico. They are wasting milions of dollars on sniper schools, to train snipers, when all they have to do is tell everyone to hide when they shoot.

Anyway, sort of mostly back on topic here.
Is it safe to shoot down at somebody? It's the same as shooting at a prone person, but I'm a bit afraid of hitting somebody in the edge of their goggles, and knocking them off, or at least low enough to expose their eyes.

Cool, I get to be a sniper now.  Does the level of stealth matter, I don't move as well in the woods as I used to.
