@JSubadya, in the 25Yd Open Sights Rifle Match (Not moderated now) I usually sit cross-legged with both elbows on the knees.  And it was more stable.  But now the soil is still a bit moist.....that's why I'm not sitting or going prone on the ground.  I go on one knee and only need a small plastic bag to keep that knee dry.

Thanks JSubadya, yup shooting off sticks while kneeling is a bit wobbly but you gotta do what you gotta do.  Didn't have time to go to the gun range where they have shooting tables and bags.


You could always go prone!  I feel you though check out this video I made on alternative firing positions. It will give you BR stabilility in the field!

Small | Large



Shooting prone, with a sling (service rifle sling cuffed around bicep) & leather mitt was rock solid in NRA highpower,
I would pick that over sitting at a bench any day.
