Two-handed or ready carry
Provides the best control, particularly in thick brush or weeds, or when you need to fire quickly. If you fall, gives you better control of the gun and helps you keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. Can be used as either a right- or left-handed carry. Use only if your gun would not be pointed at others while walking side-by-side.
