i mean we havent even reached the 10th page yet and this craps already starting, please try to avoid flaming.

its an ok discussion so far, let it ride out.

I am being perfectly reasonable. I could be a total, complete "meanie pants", but am choosing not to.

Also, most sniper threads are filled with flames by the first post. I think we are doing well. Stop being a drama queen.

I'm just saying, calling someone an ass is usually OK, since it generally implies they are stupid/stubborn or have other donkey-like qualities, but to compare them to a rectum is generally veiwed as a no-no. I figure network TV rules are decent guidlines for language on the forum.

But since we're getting off topic, I'm a 1337 sNip0r! I sh00t yer face!

Sniping is shooting at long distances that is usually out of the other person's range of fire.  That's what I believe sniping is.  That's what it is in my mind.  And since you have the same distance on all PB Markers, you will get the same yardage, unless you change the velocity, as other markers.  Or unless you have a flatline.

actually, their are 2 barrels that outrange all other barrels by a significant range, Flatline and the Apex. But it is virtually imposible to land a 1 shot kill at peak range with both barrels anyway, and usually the paint will just hit some brush or a tree before it reaches the target.

real word:

Sniping is an art of concealment.

Sniping is an art of stealth.

Sniping is moving from point A to point B without being detected. This could take anywhere from minutes to days.

Sniping is range determination / element adjusting.

Sniping is waiting concealed in an area for a predetermined target.

Sniping is spotting and dropping the target from a distance and retreating without being detected.

A sniper does not have to have a weapon that outshoots his enemies. Most enemies have a weapon with the same range as a 50 cal. or better (which has more range then most sniper rifles minus the accuracy)

Paintball:

Though many may believe in or claim to be "paintball snipers", I typically feel that they are basically nothing more then setting in ambush position.

There is no paintball made that has the trajectory or effectiveness to be used in a "paintball sniper marker." Of all the "paintball snipers" I have seen most carry way to much equipment with them (ie. pods of paint, large hoppers etc etc)

If you honestly believe you have the stealth, concealment skills, accuracy, tactical knowledge, equipment and effectiveness to call your self a paintball sniper then so be it. However if you are taking more then twelve paintballs into the combat zone then you are doing nothing other then preparing an ambush.

Thats the problem.

If you consider yourself a Sniper in the game of paintball, you are doing dishonor to the REAL military snipers(good people like OS)who  have fought, shed thier blood and died for thier country to keep us free. The way I see it that is very disrespectful.

I agree hole heartedly, I never served as a duty sniper and would never call myself or consider myself to be a sniper. However I was blessed with the oppurtunity and completed several stages of sniper training in Europe, and Harmony Church(Ft. Benning) as well as Spec Ops Target Identification (Ft Bragg).

During these courses I worked/trained hand in hand with the real snipers of the world. What paintball players must understand is there is a huge difference in being a sniper and sniping an opponent.

Yes it is possible to snipe a paintballer, however there will never be a paintball sniper.

A man who has made no enemies is not truely a man at all.

  Surprise and stealth is and AMBUSH. We've gone over this so many times it isn't funny. I may have to agree with the statement that you can sniper a player in paintball but not be a paintball sniper.

It is possible to shoot someone from concealment, occasionaly with one shot. However, this is alike to an insurget on a rooftop with an AK-47. He can snipe someone, however, since he doesn't have a prayer of remaining undetected, or have long range capability, or even better accuracy than your average soldier, he's not a sniper. He's just some hooligan taking pot-shots.

This differs greatly from people who have the training to effectivly use cover and concealment, engage effectivly with minimal ammunition useage from beyond their opponents effective range, and escape unmolested, which does not exist in paintball.

I think that is quite possibly the best explanation for my personal views on paintball sniping that I have ever seen.    (It annoys me greatly that I didn't post it myself.)

Although, I may have presented my thoughts differently earlier in this thread (due to poor communication skills) I have never looked at a fellow player and said "He's a sniper (or heavy gunner, or light infantry)".  What I do, and what I should have stated better earlier, is that I look at my fellow players (and my own) equipment and skills and say, "He's good, he could snipe a few of their forward members to slow them down" or, "I'll provide suppressive fire to cover your advance."

I guess, that while I think sniping occurs in paintball, that does not necessarily make the player's doing it snipers (or paintball snipers) so much as it makes them someone who is capable of filling a certain roll at a certain time.  Paintball is such a fluid and dynamic activity, that while people are needed that can do the "sniping" roll, or the "support weapon" roll, and some are very good at certain rolls, most of the time we are all just paintball players.
