Yeah, I had to do that as well.

Their sitting position has you balled up tight (elbows on the shins and all that). If you have a spare tire, it's uncomfortable to the point of being unstable.

sling source

My goal is to learn, but I'd love to qualify.

Since I have plenty of time, I'd like to get an idea of what it takes to earn the Rifleman's badge, so I can practice with my bolt action.

Those of you who've done it, what drills, timing, and distances should I practice? I'm already doing pretty well on a bench at 50 yards, but that's on a bench

I am determined to obtain expert with my CZ452. It is really not all that more difficult with a bolt gun. What slows me down are phase 2 and 3. I now practice dry fire and have improved my speed. If you dry fire getting into positions and magazine change, it will help.
I found a good source for the military sling they suggest at $12
Best of luck with the qualification.
