    Looks like the “spotter” has gone to his happy place.

    Reminds me of a story I heard from my high school science teacher. He was a Navy enlisted flight crewman back in the 70s. He witnessed a couple Marines contemplating how best to steady their aim with their M16s at a range shoot. Their solution? One devil dog rested the barrel/handguard on the other’s shoulder while kneeling. Needless to say there was some severe ear damage and hearing loss to Lance Corporal Bipod.

    Story was particularly interesting to me as I had enlisted into the USMC a couple months before. In my 6 years I found that Marines ALWAYS come up with a solution to every problem — whether or not it’s a good one is conjecture.

  • awesome photo! I agree, very classic.

    The fart adds more “fire power”?

    I saw video of German troops in WWII using another soldier as a bipod steadier. One was firing his MG42 against Allied aircraft. The second soldier held the bipod and rested the barrel jacket on his shoulders. It seemed an effect but dangerous way to add range and accuracy against targets moving at 300+MPH. The high rate of fire made the MG42 a somewhat semi effective anti aircraft weapon if enough were being used against low flying aircraft….I would guess. If I remember they did have quads and twin versions for AA weapons.

    The spotter looks like he is having an emotional breakdown. Poor guy. His car could of just got repoed or something and now an L96 is resting on his backside.

  • Remember “firearms, not politics”.

    Its an old picture and apparently that is a legitimate sniper position taught by some countries.

  • Eli

    I hope they don’t anticipate return fire…Ouch!

    Maybe, the methane adds an extra push…HMMM

  • charles222

    That would be pretty damn rock solid, if uncomfortable for the spotter.

  • Throughout this great design of things you actually receive an A with regard to hard work. Exactly where you lost everybody ended up being in your facts. As they say, details make or break the argument.. And it could not be more accurate here. Having said that, allow me inform you exactly what did deliver the results. The authoring is actually extremely engaging and that is possibly the reason why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, while I can see a leaps in logic you come up with, I am definitely not sure of exactly how you seem to connect the details that help to make the final result. For now I will subscribe to your issue however trust in the future you actually connect your dots much better.
