• Assume a firing position and lower the rifle sights enough to have a clear field of view, orienting the muzzle on the leading edge of the cover. (In a building, the baseboards serve as a reference point for the muzzle of the rifle when searching for targets.)
• Taking small side steps, slowly move out from behind the cover, covering the field of view with the aiming eye and muzzle of the weapon. Wherever the eyes move, the muzzle should move (eyes, muzzle, target). The muzzle should remain on the leading edge of cover, serving as a pivot point when moving out. See figure 6-31.
