• Place the left hand under the rifle so the handguard rests in the "V" formed by the thumb and forefinger.
• Move the left hand as required to level the rifle with the line of sight. Hand placement is correct approximately midway back on the handguard.
• Placement of the forward hand controls the tension on the sling between the wrist and the upper sling swivel (see figure 5-4). This hand placement, with a straight locked wrist, will cause the sling to pull straight under the handguards and serves to stabilize the muzzle of the rifle.
• Move the feed end of the sling in or out of the sling keeper to adjust the hasty sling. It is important for the hasty sling to be adjusted so it supports the rifle.
