31347 Federal Irish Brigade Kneeling Firing No. 1

W. Britains

31347 1/30 Scale Matte Finish 1 Piece Set The proper position for kneeling and firing a long gun has the shooter making three points of contact with the ground: on his right, the ball of his foot and knee; on the left, the sole of his foot. This gives the shooter maximum control of his weapon and was a necessary position to take when firing in massed ranks. However, with the advent of the rifled musket a single shooter could be just as effective as a row of men armed with a smoothbore weapons.
