Pulled a muscle in my side doing this, I did. Of course, catching that smile makes it worth the injury, but sheeeeit, sure smarts.
Feel very comfortable shooting while hanging out of a car, now. It’s all about sitting, getting your touchas right on the window sill. You don’t wanna dangle out the window, or stretch out there, you wanna sit. I see that now. You can set yourself a bit farther back, get more in the frame, you are more stable in case your driver has to go over some speed bumps or brake for a coyote that’s crossing the street.
And when you’re sitting you’re not as apt to contort yourself in such a way that you tear the tiny muscle fibers on your left side, the ones situated in such a spot that you feel what amounts to a bee sting every time you twist your midsection.
So yeah, go sitting!
