Warning

Keep the weapon pointed downrange while returning the M141 BDM to carry mode.

• The M141 BDM will only be slung when in the carry configuration. If the weapon must be transported in the extended configuration, it should only be carried for a short distance, such as moving to a different firing position, and must be cradled in the gunner's arms with the weapon pointed toward the target (Figure 6-18).
