    Murphy's Law being what it is and all, I don't know how it would happen, but what if it did? And if I am reading correctly the concern was about the dog bumping you (specifically, the elbow), not the gun.

    When layout blinds first came out I tried what you are thinking, and it didn't work period. I got a blind for the dog and always put the blind back just a bit and between two gunners, then a few years ago I was Talking with Shawn Stahl while training and asked him why he always had Duece 20+ yards behind him, and his response made allot of sence. 1. If the dog were to break or creep most of the shooting would be done by the time the dog got in front of the guns 2. Picture yourself laying in your blind, how many times have you not seen what the guy on either side of you dropped? Happens all the time, now if you were sitting back 20 yards behind the gunners you most likely would have seen it all, same goes for the dog.
    Bottom line it's a much safer place for the dog, and he will mark alot better as well.
