When firing a long arm, the best supported, best camouflaged and lowest profile position is lying, stomach down, on the ground with your head up, weight on your forearms and weapon to the shoulder.

The armed equivalent of the missionary position but without a whore under you.

Favourite position of the Sniper (... right after slumped behind the bar).

"Adopt the prone position ... Down"

"Ready"

Why? Why not make ready then adopt the prone position?
