I'll agree with everything here.  Being an active paintballer (not a 
"speedballer" or tournament style player) I can see where that type of 
practice would be beneficial to CQB training.  I've only played on a 
speedball course once, and it's *not* paintball as I know and love.  It 
sucks.  Spray and pray.

I love my mildly tuned Tippman Model 98.  I won't use anything else - 
I've used Bruisers, Spyders, Brass Eagles, Shockers, Angels, and so on. 
  Nothing was as reliable as my Tippman.  Nothing sucks more than having 
your spiffy electro-pneumatic marker chop balls on you because the 
solenoid got out of adjustment, or it got too cold, or a piece of dirt 
got stuck in the bolt, or whatever.

But I suppose this is a topic better suited to Geeks at .  Attempting
