        For the zeroing part of the HEMS class. Same targets!

            The more things change, the more they stay the same.

            The 2nd step listed is “point naturally” which fell out of favor years ago. We now hear different terms, i.e. NPOA (natural point of aim) brought back by Appleseed (IIRC), but the concept is the same.

            Interesting also to see that both eyes were open at the beginning.

            I have never seen an “inverted aiming sight” before (seen ~ 09:42).

            Interesting video. Thanks for posting.

              I teach these principles as part of zeroing on RS / HEMS. It was taught to me and I am unaware of it changing.

              HEMS (which is our version of CMMS – combat marksmanship) goes beyond prone fundamentals into applying them in various positions and then dynamically to combat shooting and reactinh to fire from standing, shooting on the move etc.

                I am only aware of the US versions, which have undergone a cyclical pattern. There is a strong civilian instructional presence in the military (per our NRA students), so I’m hearing it from both realms (civilian and military) though I have no direct experience with military.

                May also be regional (all of my experience has been in the South).
