Searching for and Engaging Targets From Behind Cover

To locate targets when behind cover or to ensure the area is clear before moving, the Marine must expose as little of himself as possible to the enemy. Additionally, the Marine must be ready to fire if a target is located. Two techniques that can be used to locate and engage targets from behind cover are: the pie and rollout. These techniques minimize the Marine's exposure to enemy fire while placing the Marine in a position to engage targets or to move to another location if necessary. These techniques are also used to enter a building or structure. Both techniques are used in the kneeling and standing positions. To be accurate in engaging targets using either technique, the seven factors must be applied. See page 6-6 for a discussion of seven factors.
