Course Outline

There are four standard rifle-firing positions: prone, standing, sitting, and kneeling.


With neither arm supported, this is the most difficult position for firing an accurate shot. Rather than trying to hold the barrel steady, which is impossible, try to keep movement of the barrel to as small an area as possible. Smooth, natural motion will produce the best shot.
