Example text

3-5 Hawkins Position The Hawkins position is used when a low silhouette is desired. This position is very useful when firing from a small depression, a slight rise in the ground, or from a roof . This is the steadiest of all shooting positions. Concealment is also greatly aided by the Hawkins position because the firer is lying flat on the ground. This position cannot be used on level ground since the muzzle cannot be raised high enough to aim at the target. The Hawkins position is similar to the prone supported position, except that the support of the weapon is provided by the non-firing hand.

Proper bone support is a learned process; only through practice (dry fire, live fire) will the sniper gain proficiency in this skill. 3-2 Muscular relaxation. The sniper must learn to relax as much as possible in the various firing positions. Undue muscle strain or tension causes trembling, which is transmitted to the rifle. However, in all positions, a certain amount of controlled muscular tension is needed. For example, in a rapid-fire position there should be pressure on the spot weld. Only through practice and achieving a natural point of aim will the sniper learn muscular relaxation.

A “V” is formed with the thumb and forefinger of the non-firing hand. Place the non-firing hand, palm facing away, against the support with the fore-end of the weapon resting in the V of the hand. This steadies the weapon and allows quick recovery from recoil. A vertical support such as a tree, telephone pole, corner of building, or vehicle, may be used. Locate the stable support. Then face 45 degrees to right of target, and place the palm of the non-firing hand at arm’s length against the support.
