I will first admit that I am a bit ignorant so I have this question.
I have seen many photos lately of "professional" shooters holding their rifles. The firing hand is in the expected position, but, I see the non firing hand held way out on the barrel guard with the are nearly straight. Why??? This does not seem to be stable in a nonsupported firing position. My limited experience in the military tells me to keep both elbows in close to use the body as support. Can someone please give me a coherent explanation?

Everyone has their favorite way to hold a rifle when shooting. Try different ways and see what works best for you.

A long arm is much better if you have to move the gun either on moving targets or moving the gun to various targets......just ask a shotgunner

Thanks guys. That makes sense. I do prefer the short grip shown in the second video, based on my deployments with Special Operations. I will be looking for professional training soon.

I was watching that last video while watching "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty". That guy looks like the guy that took over Life mag, Adam Scott.
