To move the MK 19 and equipment a short distance, the gunner commands SECURE EQUIPMENT, FOLLOW ME. The MK 19 can be moved using one of three methods:
a. Dragging. The gunner grasps the front leg and pulls the MK 19 to the new position, and the assistant gunner secures any loose equipment.
b. Two-man Carry. The gunner stands behind the tripod with a trail leg in each hand. The assistant gunner grasps the front leg and avoids touching the barrel if it is hot. The gunner and assistant gunner carry the mounted MK 19. The assistant gunner returns to secure any loose equipment.
c. Three-man Carry. The gunner and assistant gunner each holds a trail leg just above the traverse bar. The ammunition bearer grasps the front leg and avoids touching the barrel if it is hot. The crew moves to the new position. The ammunition bearer and the assistant gunner go back and get the ammunition or loose equipment, and return to the new position.
