You must not be very serious. Impacts > Everything.Blanchard can do this all the way to sitting...he used it in my squad in like 2016 in New mexico
for the sitting he would move is foot from under him and sit on his butt, then rest the rifle on the top of his boot/pants and grab it to keep it from sliding
IF you can get into the position its actually very stable...my torso is slightly too long for me to do it, i can get into the position, but then i cant breathe lol
I’ve tried it, it’s a seems to be a pretty interesting position with potential. From my experience most positional shooting is at 3 minute targets inside 600y. Also, this is why this old guy does yoga.Don’t try that with a heavy recoiling gun,
I can’t imagine that is not very stable, but maybe it is
How is that more stable than a traditional sling kneeling?
I think a bigger concern is the head/eye position, it’s gotta be easy to can’t the rifle that way
Now THAT is an interesting quote!Lack of training leads to innovation or bastardization of the positions
Totally agree.Now THAT is an interesting quote!
On the one hand you're a brilliant innovator in the realm of positional shooting who is widening all our horizions. On the other hand you're an untrained moron who's doing it wrong!
Great feedback. I guess it's all about perspective and what your goals are. On one hand it's very hard to argue with a position that gets you your hits within the context of a competition. On the other hand, I wonder if this is a position that is applicable in a "real world" setting? Obviously it's all recreation unless you carry a gun for a living. But for example, I try to only practice positions that I could realistically use in a hunting situation. I haven't scraped up the money to start shooting in matches yet, but if/when I do the ultimate goal would be getting more time reinforcing fundamentals to make me more proficient marksman in the field hunting.Dang don't know how I missed this. Im famous.
-lots of match directors get around this by saying "no yoga positions" or "barrel has to be above knee." I practice both and am completely fine with both.
-100% more solid than sling traditional and 100% faster trasnsition positions...esp in cold weather!
-if it wasn't so cold and so many layers, I usually have butt inside elbow - no worries on recoil
-def practice before trying in a match. target acquisition through scope is 200% harder than any other position
-transition, as mentioned, to sitting is super fast
-rifle is almost 5 lbs under 20#...man the haters are getting redic! lol
-MOST IMPORTANT - I cleaned that stage. suck it trebec.
eta - contrary to popular haters...if you suck at positional, this isn't a fix. its a tool. and much harder to use, not only for flexibility reasons but several others you will find out during shooting. GL.
