Rule of thumb is higher sens = easier movement, harder aiming, while lower sens gives the exact opposite. Of course you don't want to go too low (anything more than 30cm/360 seems plain madness for me, but there are decent players using 50cm/360 with great success, though) and not too high (you will be skipping pixels and missing a lot of rapid fire weapon shots).

Some people do things like that, but it has some drawbacks.

Sometimes your movement will change some when you use one sens over the other. It can also have a negative effect on consistency if the change is dramatic. If you use accel but don't change accel/sens per weapon, then at least you still have a consistent mouse feel.
^hm, good point
Maybe a slight difference would work for some people tho.. just a thought.
I went trough this a while back and you guys helped me out quite a bit, here is the thread for reference
I ended up with 15cm/360 and its working out overall.. consistency is still an issue but I can't really blame it on high sens alone.
I would suggest for practice "cg_drawcrosshair 0".
Load up a game vs bots and just play..
The first shot doesn't have to hit for obvious reasons but the second, third and so on should or you have not found your personal sens/accel by now.
