Only the cool people were in band!
Morgan Walker said:But to be very honest I was always on the playing field, never was I in the band. I see what Jason is talking about with situational awareness and hand eye coordination and the similarities with a marching band and shooting on the move.
MI_Jester said:Yep, Corp style marching taught a lot of these traits. I was a percussionist for about 10 years. I went to a High School that was VERY pro football. My senior quote was "Because of band, I'm going to Australia and Hawaii this year. Where has football taken you?"
I learned to shoot on the move playing paintball. Nothing like shooting a heavy gun with inaccurate ammo while sprinting and avoiding incoming fire to make you learn how to keep a level shooting platform. It also taught you how to use cover well. With real firearms, paintball cover only becomes concealment, but it all helps.
