Best Answer

In military drill, the command of "trail arms" means that a rifle, which has been at "order arms" (butt on the ground beside the right foot, barrel gripped by right hand) is lifted vertically a few inches, and carried vertically in the one hand. This is used when moving a group of troops a few feet- as opposed to using "port arms" (rifle carried diagonally across the chest with both hands)
