Elbow in Hip

Post by David M R » Thu Sep 01, 2016 5:29 pm

I saw an old military man shoot with his elbow on his hip and he was a good shot.
I lost some weight and can get my elbow on the bone so I just lean my torso for elevation.
I have to hold the rifle on my thumb and forefinger in a V to get enough elevation.

I also hold my elbow on my chest with the magazine area in my cupped hand left elbow under rifle.

I will try to post a picture

Yeah, I'd need a chainsaw to get my elbow on my hip....
If she's yelling "Pineapple Congress Philadelphia Pogo-Stick" She probably forgot the safe word.

Oldranger, friction is our friend. I crank my support arm triceps across my bulbous belly. The belly to triceps friction holds quite well and I can lean back but keep my back a little more straight than the little fellers.
