This is Robert Stewart with hill 13.com. The
next set of hand signals, we’re going to show are less about movement and directing movement.
And more about elements on the field and the condition of your gun. The first two are see,
which is your hand pointed at your eyes. You can further elaborate by going you see or
I see. The next one is hear, which is simply putting your hand inside of your head like
you’re listening to something. And again, you can communicate you know. You hear anything?
So that’s hear. The next one is out of air, which means you just draw your hand underneath
the chin, like that. The next one is gun down. So if someone calls for cover and they look
at you and you’re close up to the enemy’s position. And you don’t want to yell that
out because your gun is down, you simply motion it to him, this way. With your thumb down.
the next one is gun. o.k. That’s a standard o.k. symbol. The next one is bunker which
means you make your hand like a little house. The opposite of that is flag station which
means you turn that up. Flag is simply this or this. Your hand pointed out, parallel with
the ground like a flag. The next one is out of paint. You make a paint ball with your
hand. After that is affirmative. And it’s just the old G.I. Joe thumbs up. And you can
combine these with the others, we spoke of before. And make simple sentences that can
communicate quite a lot of information.
