One of the correct standing positions is shown at Fig. 45. To get this position stand sidewise with your feet about 10 or 12 inches apart and your left side toward the target.
Hold your rifle with the butt firmly against your right shoulder with your cheek pressed against the stock and your right arm resting against your body to steady the rifle. Don't strain the muscles of your body, but let them be free and natural, for if your body is not perfectly at ease even so small a thing as the beating of your heart may affect your aim.
