The Highrise is so the gun is lower but site higher so the muscles are more at rest than if you hold the gun up high with a normal height scope.

Re: NTS Custom XP100 in .243 Win.

OK! Picture this. you lay on your back, knees up, feet apart to create a triangle, pistol in hand, hand on hip, barrel/forarm resting against your leg or on top of your boot top, elbow out and on the ground or shooting paddock, creating another triangle, head up resting on your forarm with hand on the ground to creat yet another triangle to support your head. this way you have created as much stability as possible without having to strain to use mucles to hold your head up, litle effort to hold the gun up. very stable. typically we don't use rifle scopes, but I had this one pistol/ scout scope so I used it. I have Ken Lights scope mount extensions on a few of my other pistols and they are nice but not Infinitely Adjustable for eye relief as this set up is. Some pistols scopes don't have as good long eye relief as others. My Leupold does, my Simmons does, but my Burris does not and this set up allows me reduce that distance form eye to scope and give me more field of view at high power. there is another position called the dead frog where you lay on your back, legs crossed as if you were sitting on the floor, and you lay the gun on your thigh gun hand and arm the same more or less as the Creedmor and head support he same.
Hunting coyotes, mule deer or antelope you can sit up and wiggle you way back into a sage brush or up against a tree and put your knees up and together set the gun in the notch between your knees and push your hands all way forward to lock your hand/gun in. creates a very stable position in open country like here in Central/Eastern Oregon.

actually a quite stable position, however not recommended for revolvers unless you have leathers. been there done that. but as you can see the eye relief is substancial

just helping out with a visual

Re: NTS Custom XP100 in .243 Win.

Now you see the guy in the top photo with the shorts on. my scope is back about his belt line and the tube rest on my hip above the belt.
by the way where is this range? Nice. our range is nice, but we have desert sand, no water, very little vegetation. It would be so sweet to have grass around the firing line.
