    That is the dumbest thing I have seen. He’s worried about his feet being exposed but he will stick his hole head and left arm out. Just something for him to say look what I did. Ask Larry Vickers what he thinks of that shooting position. DUMB.

    Hi, My name is William . I have a Sig Classic 5.56 , And with this weapon “I” Find it better to lie prone with the Auto tire on a flat cant with my body some what ???
    Keep in mind that you will need to move ,, “If ” you are not pined at that spot , So that you do not become a time target ?

    Why not just go prone with your body angled away from the threat behind the tire? You don’t need to make any special adjustments for the height of the sight above the barrel, you can get into position quickly, you don’t need a vertical grip on the hand guard, and you can recover or remain in position for an extended period of time, whichever is necessary.

    I have to agree, even though I’m not an experienced instructor, that this is a ridiculous position to assume in the heat of the moment during a gunfight.

    Agree, can crouch up prone to the wheel, rifle in standard position, and lean out to see target. Elbow available for support. Similar good cover as above, but not shooting upside down. Not an instructor, but just how my last instructor showed us.

    Absolutely the dumbest position I’ve ever seen! Several things wrong with it, 1) Very awkward and off balanced, 2) difficult to recover from that position in the event of assault from rear of the vehicle, 3) entire peripheral field of view is compromised.

    It is an awkward position, but shooting under a vehicle with a carbine requires the weapon to be canted at least sixty degrees due to limited ground clearance (unless you’re behind something like a bus or semi). Canting the weapon that severely from a standard prone position would be even more awkward than the position demonstrated in the video. The demonstrated position also offers better cover than shooting over or around the body of the vehicle would.
