Figure Supported Prone

13 (b) The prone position can be assumed behind a tree, a wall, a log, or almost any

14 type of cover. It is flexible and allows shooting from all sides and from cover of

15 varying sizes.

16 (c) The body must be adjusted to conform to the cover. For example, if the cover

17 is narrow, keep the legs together. The body should be in line with the rifle and

18 directly behind the rifle (see figure 6-23). This presents a smaller target to the

19 enemy and provides more body mass to absorb recoil.
