Grip of the Right Hand

Grasp the pistol grip with the right hand and place the forefinger on the trigger, with the thumb and remaining fingers wrapped around the pistol grip. See figure 5-14.

Firm rearward pressure should be exerted to help keep the rifle butt firmly in the shoulder, reducing the effects of recoil (this type of pressure is particularly true with the loop sling).

The trigger finger should be placed naturally on the trigger and care should be taken to ensure that the trigger finger can move independently without dragging on the side of the receiver. Proper placement of the right hand high on the pistol grip allows the trigger to be moved straight to the rear without disturbing sight alignment.
