Noticed Danny Creasy's picture of his offhand trigger hand positon he liked.

Top ranked offhand competitors who shoot rapid fire (biathlon events when standing) get best results with their trigger hand gripping the stock; thumb wrapped around the grip and their most sensitive and repeatable finger on the trigger. Ones index (usually pointing) finger is the one that's best controlled in moving it. And that's what's needed on triggers. The two fingers furthest from the thumb are the least controllable of all.

Especially when heavier triggers are used. Otherwise, the shock of the trigger finger stopping as the finger lever hits its stop move the rifle point of aim a little bit.
