Figure Buttstock in the Shoulder

5 (b) If the Marine is using the hasty sling properly to support his position, the Marine will

6 be more squared to the target; the rifle will not be angled across the chest.

7 (3) Grip of the Right Hand. Grasp the pistol grip with the right hand and place the

8 forefinger on the trigger, with the thumb and remaining fingers wrapped around the pistol grip

9 (see figure 5-10). Firm rearward pressure should be exerted to help keep the rifle butt firmly

10 in the shoulder, reducing the effects of recoil. The trigger finger should be placed naturally on

11 the trigger and care should be taken to ensure that the trigger finger can move independently

12 without dragging on the side of the receiver. Proper placement of the right hand on the pistol

13 grip allows the trigger to be moved straight to the rear without disturbing sight alignment.
