My teammate Calgar has issued a challenge in the Red Dynasty forum to any team to skirmish with the Red Sevens.
I will take it further and issue a challenge to any SWAT STAR SPECIAL FORCES COMMANDO ARMY team to play speedball with us and I dare say that we will beat these guys.
My point is that speedball skills will make you a better cop/soldier SWAT. Whereas Army skills is worthless on the paintball field. I'd say that if you learning how to play speedball will make you a better SWAT/SOLDIER in the field.
In speedball you do things like slide- shoot with both hands and snap shoot. All these they don't teach you in the army. They tell you to shoot with your stronger hand and use your master eye. That is quite restrictive and narrows your options. In speedball you don't use your master eye- you use two eyes to trace your shots. One of the advantage of using both eyes is - you can see what else is around you or your target- you wont get tunnel vision and miss someting on the side what could counter you.
Snap shooting is a skill which can be applied to shooting with hand guns and rifles- further more in speedball you have to be able to shoot with both sides left and right handed. Snap shooting will increase your chances of survival and chances of beating th eguy who is shooing at you.
When I watched BlackHawk down recently- and in a street scene - Sgt Eversmann played by Josh Hartnett was engaging the enemy around a corner. Because he was shooting right handed around the a left corner he had to lean out to get his rifle out around the corner to get a shot. In speedball that'll be stupid. If he learnt how to snap shoot with his left hand he wouldn't have to be so exposed to the enemy.
I watched those guys run with their bodies almost upright into cover while under fire. If I were them I'd be sprinting while keeping my body super low and sliding into my cover.
Another thing army guys cant do- they cant shoot on the run. We can and we do it with both left and right hands and we can change hands while on the run.
I said it before- when you come to the paintball field- leave your army shit back home. Leave your no.4 camo pants at home too- they will tear in the crotch and knee areas. You will trip over your army boots. Forget about cover firing and etc etc- its all rubbish. I can train a bunch of high school kids to beat a bunch of army officers so army shit ain't worth crap on the PB field.
So the challenge is up- you and your special forces SWAT STAR or whatever Amry Commando shit can come and play us.
