ok me and my friend are in an arguement over which way you are "suppose" to tilt the gun when you shoot.i say tilt it to the left(were both righties)so your right hand is sort-of on top, well he says to tilt it to thr right. while i get my reasons from watching pro players, he says the opposite because the hopper on the 98 makes it hard to see (for him i can see fine) when tilted left. whos right?

My advice, get a flatline so niether one of you will be wrong or right... because you have to fire straight all the time.... lol  But honostly I don't really know... I'm right handed and I have a 98.. I hold it with my left hand on the foregrip and my right on the acual handle and just fire more in a straight line than tilt it

Well, it is all personal preference. Do what ever feels comfortable for you.
Personally, I tilt my gun inward, towards the bunker. That way, my hopper is not exposed and I am playing more profile. It is harder to plant a ball on someone who is playing profile.

uh, im not sure wut playing profile is, i prefer to play guns-a-blazin, lmao. but by how your explaining it, thats what i'm talking about, i.e. if  your right hand is in the back pulling the trig, you tilt the gun so the hopper is to the left, which if you stand right would put the hopper closer to you and reduce hopper hits.

i dont think you understand. im not talking about tilting it so your aim is off, but keeping the gun straight and tilting your wrists, which will make the hopper  turn in  closer or out away from you

drunk driver is right, it all depends on which side of the bunker you are shooting out of, always tilt your hopper inward, the less the oponent can see, the less likely they are to hit you.

If your leaning out of the left side of a bunker......tilt the gun to the right so the hopper is behind the bunker. If your leaning out the right side.....you guess it. Tilt it to the left

I've seen this, it's funny.  We had a group of walk-ons at our field one day that were all "wanna-be tough guys."  They were all holding their rental 98's "gangsta style" and couldn't understand why they were chopping paint and shooting blanks.

Some hoppers change feeding direction when you tilt it left or right.

I've never really tilted my gun in any direction intentionally to tell the truth

speaking of holding the gun gansta style. one day we were playing paintball and some one had a crappy 3 piece barrel that kept breaking his balls. it was also 21 in. some one else unsrewed the first two pieces so there was only about 4 in. left. he started asting like it was a 9 mill. holding it sideways. also, that guy with the gun, kept using the gun with only 4in. of barrel
