Forend control

I cringe watching people shooting off a bipod with their left hand tucked under the stock.

Well, it Is 5.56 with a suppressor. I guess recoil isn't that big of an issue?

7.62 x 51 is no doubt the boot-camp training round.

Ah, ok, I watched the first little bit and they mentioned the m4 carbine, but I guess that's just to qualify. I didn't keep watching until they said they shoot the m2010, m110 and m107. 300 win mag and 50 cal will kick a touch!

So, I'm guessing people coming out of there can hit better than the broad side of a barn without gripping the forend. Seems they are loading the bipod?

Re: Forend control
I read an interview with a graduate. He said 20% of the training was shooting. The rest was sewing ghillie suits, stealth, etc. He said the “final exam” was, they gave you two cartridges. You had had to hit a human-torso target at an unknown range, by estimating it using the scope’s hash marks. He missed his first shot, but his second shot hit the “gut”, so he passed.
