seen alot of different styles around, the classic into your shoulder stance, the new square on thumb over the barrel stance and occasionaly the ex paintballer hold it just above your shoulder stance (nothing looks more ridiculas in my opinion)

What do you use and why. i got for the into the shoulder stance but tuck my elbows in to present myself as a smaller target and give myself more stability while firing on the move.

Shoulder stance with elbows tucked in, same as you.

And with sniper it's the same. Prone, I use the bi-pod, one hand on trigger, left hand on right shoulder and the stock rests on that diagonal arm. It's more comfy and stable.

Also aim with both eyes open.


My step-dad uses the paintballer aim, hate it. Makes him look so stupid. Although, I am really good at aiming like that, I prefer not to look ridiculous.

Elbows tucked in (mainly because i dont fancy doing the chicken dance if i get shot) and the thumb over the barrel is more i beleive for target shooting the real steel without raisng you profile to much but allowing for maximum control of the rifle either works really

shouldered PROPERLY like everyone else so far
hand that pulls the trigger is tucked, arm that supports is out wide, more strength to pull/push the weapon where I want it when I want it.

I grip my pistols properly too, not 'derptasticly' like the leprechaun does. IE. shooty hand properly with the supporting hand symetricalling it, not shooting hand properly with the supporting hand holding onto the mag looking like a moron.

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.

 

Resident Patrol Base Techy, any questions about PB, message me and I'll do my best to answer.

Yea but if your rifle is heavy it will help from sapping you energy too fast as all i hear from people holding the darn things is its too heavy (that really pisses me off as i just wanna say look you ***** hold it like i showed you

I hold mine The Correct way ;) (weapon shouldered and on that foregrip)

How you hold a weapon is personnel preference and depends on the shooter, just annoy me when people have foregrips and hold the magwell as they say its only comfortable to hold the grip when running.

Herp derp, i have to hold it like that cos the mags dont feed properly...

And i hold my gun in whatever way is the most comfortable and stable at the time (ie you cant hold the same gun stance when your running, or medicing etc)
