Crossed Ankle Sitting Position with the Loop Sling

Apply the three elements and seven factors to this position (para. 5004). To assume crossed ankle sitting position with the loop sling (see figs. 5-36 and 5-37)—

l Position the body at approximately a 30-degree angle to the target. l Place the left hand under the handguard. l Bend at knees and break the fall with the right hand. l Push backward with the feet to extend the legs and place the buttocks on the ground. l Cross the left ankle over the right ankle. l Bend forward at the waist and place the left elbow on the left leg below the knee. l Grasp the rifle butt with the right hand and place the rifle butt into the right shoulder pocket. l Grasp the pistol grip with the right hand. l Lower right elbow to the inside of the right knee. l Lower the head and place the cheek firmly against the stock to allow the aiming eye to look through the rear sight aperture.

Figure 5-37. Front View.

l Move the left hand to a location under the hand-guard, which provides maximum bone support and stability of the weapon.
