Pistol shooting from prone positions

Prone positions can be very useful- typically you have more support while prone so accuracy should be easier to attain.

The things I like about this CoF:

  • Great use of various prone positions with and without cover/concealment and while the student is moving
  • The student never engages from the same place twice in a row
  • Moving backwards is much more realistic than walking in on any target- getting off the X always should mean putting distance between you and the threat (except for the exception where you must advance to get a loved one to safety- but this is not a typical scenario to train for)
  • Search and assess- including a look behind you- is an important piece of a firing regimen. Remember that an attacker will seldom approach you head-on
