Military And Combat Survival

There are essentially two ways of shooting a firearm from behind an obstacle: Doing it rightly and doing it wrongly, and the difference between these two ways of doing things within the context of combat survival is simply life or death.

Natural or artificial obstacles are good for hding, camouflaging and protection. It is not frequent that you will manage to get those threee significant factors concurring in your favour at the same time but you should look for, at least, one of them when choosing a position. Then you have to consider that after the surprise is lost, like when an ambush begins and firing positions are identified. After that moment, protecton becomes more important than anything else.


Incorrect shooting posture: The shooter is exposing his body over the obstacle in a previsible manner.

And you can get it in two ways: Passively, by means of a sturdy obstacle that will stop any kind of projectile thrown or shot at you, and actively, by managing your movements in a clever way. In this regard, you will have to expose the least amount of surface of your body and appear in front of your enemies in a seemingly random manner; if you become previsible you will be lost because they will have time to aim at some place in which they will expect you to appear. Random movements are extremely important.


A good shooting posture: The combatant exposes very little of his body, and he does so on the sides of the obstacle.

And as you expose your body, you should do so in such a way as to decrease as much as posible the target area of your vital parts, including your chest and head. This means that you should never pop out on the top side of the obstacle, but at its sides, following no apparent pattern.


The best shooting posture: The combatant cannot be seen with ease despite the fact that indeed, he is there waiting for you.
