    Ah - thanks for posting that - that's something I've done as well. I'd call it the 'base' of the index finger. For some reason I was thinking the tip of the finger itself. I found it a bit harder with older USGI safeties (not extended ones), so used my support hand thumb more frequently.

    Much easier with extended safety.

    These are the two methods I've been using. Both ways feel like I'm gonna drop it, especially when stressed. Practice and reps I suppose.

    Yup it feels unnatural but doable.
