PRONE Position Rifle Shooting


PRONE Position Rifle Shooting

The prone position is that of the old-time woodsmen who were partial to resting their long barrels across a fallen tree or anything else that came handy. Some plainsmen and buffalo hunters were once in the habit of carrying a crossed stick which could be forced into the ground, thus affording a muzzle rest. However, soldiers are not allowed a muzzle rest, neither would the ballistics of a high power rifle permit it. The prone is in all respects like aiming across the log, except the barrel must be held free of support.

The finest military scores have been made in the prone, and it is the accepted position from five hundred yards up. The man who can aim and pull trigger will quickly learn to shoot in the prone and do finer work than would be possible for him in the off-hand or knee rest.

Soldiers who find it highly desirable to keep under cover will always shoot a great deal from the prone, and the hunter who is forced to crawl over bare ground in approaching game will be under the same necessity. It follows that a certain amount of practice in this position is essential to the hunter.
