Summary

The rules called for shooting from the prone and standing positions, but the third position could be either kneeling or sitting. American shooters did not often shoot while kneeling, so most of them chose to sit. Morris Fisher, who shot with his service rifle, shot a tremendous sitting score, higher than any done prone, and this led him to victory. Fisher was an experienced shooter who played his violin for relaxation.
