    Long gun positions

    I'm trying out some different courses of fire from other agenices. One for the FBI has you starting with the weapon in position 2 for one relay, then another has from position 5 which it says is high ready.
    They are not using them as prone, kneeling, etc., but using them as how the weapon is held.
    This is the first time I've heard of the different positions, anyone let me know what the rest of them are?

    You can number them or call them whatever you like really. I'm pretty sure only the Feds would come up with numbers for positions of muzzle.

    As I recall, the FBI teaches 7 basic positions in their rifle program - they are:

    1. Supported Prone 2. Unsupported Prone 3. Offhand 4. Sitting 5. Kneeling
    6. Standing Barricade 7. Kneeling Barricade

    We call our primary muzzle position "ready gun" and use it for just about everything.

    It really isn't anything different than you would do with your handgun while yelling at a suspect and not preparing to shoot them.

    Rifle is slung, then placed in the "firing pocket" of your shoulder, off hand on handgrip or light switch or however you have it set up.

    The barrel of the weapon is depressed, usually at or near 45 degrees to your body, so that the muzzle is pointed at good old safe dirt.

    Your dominant eyeball is looking over the rear sight or optic at your threat.

    Hopefully I didn't confuse the hell out of you, but if I did ask and I will try to clarify.

    PS: If they teach anything that has to do with pointing your muzzle in the air as high ready, abandon it. (IMHO)

    You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.
