    Whenever I see people shoot semi auto rifles they usually take a certain stance that I can't describe, but they usually kind of lean forward or something. :dunno: Anyway, this is how I hold my gun when I shoot, am I doing anything wrong or is there anything I can do to improve it? It feels fairly stable but I'm sure there's room for improvement.

    If you're working on defensive type carbine shooting then here are some pointers from our carbine course.

    Square your body out as much as you can to the target. Then keep your right and left arms tucked in and down. Also make sure you're bringing the gun up to your eye, only the toe of the buttplate will contact your shoulder, that allows you to keep your head up and keep a 360 view better.

    Slight forward lean for muzzle control and follow up, but no reason to go as far forward as in that picture.

    Stolen from OFA's website, but I think the guy one the right has a pretty good stance.

    the issue is that with combat firearms, a traditional looking sideways stance allows the muzzle to climb and your body to torque sideways, which reduces the speed of the follow up shot. By squaring your body, you have more control over the firearm.

    don't worry about form...shoot what's comfortable and natural, as long as you are shooting right...and if you aren't, it's probably not your stance affecting your accuracy anyway.

    in a fight, keep your feet moving and concentrate on your sights. 'front sight front sight front sight' should be your mantra. Your body will do what it will. But for combat shooting, the square to the target is the preferred method when stationary.
