    I was amused by the discussion of The Groucho Method for the reasons described. :)

    On a side note, this is exactly the same method I teach for standard footwork on unknown terrain with knife, tomahawk, slungshot, and sword (or any melee weapon). The only thing that changes is how "bladed" the body is (stance) and that's dependent upon the weapon and what weapon may be being faced.

    We used the term 'duck walk' trained it more for pistol than long gun. Normal walking makes your body/aim bob up and down with each step. The duck keeps your body/aim at about the same level from step to step, but everything below the waist looks 'tarded. Effective but dumb looking.

    I'm curious what the side-to-side walking looks like. I can't seem to picture it.

    We quit using that retarded walk a few years ago. Still catch myself doing on the range.
