Figure Seven Factors with the Loop Sling

(1) Left Hand. In all positions established with the loop sling, it is desirable that the handguard of the rifle rest in the "V" formed by the thumb and index finger of the left hand. The left wrist is straight with the rifle resting across the heel of the hand. The left elbow should be positioned directly under the weapon to create bone support and a consistent resistance to recoil. The fingers can curl against the handguard, but should apply only the minimum amount of pressure to prevent the hand from slipping on the handguard. Move the left hand rearward or forward on the handguards to adjust for elevation (moving the hand rearward elevates the muzzle). See figure 5-17.
