This fellow likes to call it "mortaring" - I like to call it the Pogo Maneuver - like as in a pogo stick.I also like to find a nice clump of grass to jab it on.

I prefer to grip the AR/M16 charging handle with two fingers instead of one when doing this -

Can attest that this move works on Ruger 10/22s, AKs, FALs - anything autoloading.

Absolutely important - if you have a telescoping stock, make sure it is slid up to the receiver and not extended.

This fellow is hardly an expert...lol. He loses credibility when he kneels and lets barrel stick in the dirt as he decides what to do with his rifle while he is looking cool for the camera...
