It’s no joke that situations arise quickly and you don’t have control of the timing or location. Nor do you have the luxury of choosing what position you must shoot from to stay safe. Choosing your cover is crucial but knowing how to shoot from a position on your belly or flat on your back or from a prone position, is also just as critical.
Shooting Prone Tactics From Flat On Your Belly or
On Your Back Positions
These are great tips to keep in mind and practice with an unloaded gun to give yourself that muscle memory edge – just in case.

What about shooting prone with a rifle?
Keep in mind the difference between cover that slows or stops bullets coming at you versus concealment which only hides you from view until, of course, you begin shooting at the threat – then they will know from which you are firing unless you move your position.
A car or truck engine is okay but a tire is better for cover. Huge metal trash containers are good also.
Stay alert to your surroundings and scope out good cover wherever you go to keep your reflexes sharp – just in case.
