Sure, you know prone, but how about modified prone behind cover? (VIDEO)

Sig Sauer Academy senior instructor and retired SGM Chili Palmer walks you through a modified prone position simulating shooting around a vehicle tire.

Prone is one of your basic and most tried and true shooting positions, but there is nothing basic about the modified position Palmer exhibits. A shooter has to keep a lot of variables in mind to pull it off but the method can minimize exposure to a bad guy lurking on the other side of the barricade.

Sure, it’s not something you would use everyday, but if you are a practical/tactical shooter, it’s something to work out the mechanics of while at the range long before you ever have to use it in real life.
