Where should you place your support hand on a rifle? Rob Pincus examines the options, including the magwell grip, gripping the far end of the rail, and placing the hand somewhere in between. Each grip has advantages and disadvantages related to controlling the rifle, fatigue, target acquisition, and unorthodox shooting positions. Rob covers both defensive and competitive applications for holding a rifle.
