I enjoy shooting any way I need to, as long as I'm not standing on my head - trick-shooting is beyond my modest capability. On the move feels the most challenging and more rewarding. It's my least accurate position, of the choices given, but I find it to be the most practical and natural position and I do use it the most often. My experience has been that bench shooting is mostly the rifle's capability and moving through stations of fire is mostly the skill of the shooter. We practice all of the primary positions because it takes all of them to enable a competent, basic rifleman.

Having destroyed my back overworking, bench is the only way I can handle bull barreled rifles. Yes, it does exaggerate the shooter's skills, but it's just as fun to hit what you're aiming at. Learning a consistent cheek weld has helped me improve the most. Thanks, Bruce in Tombstone at The Virtual Junkyard.
