    If I think I know what you're refering to, they're used to attatch a sling to the rifle.

    Thumb hook. Used for better grip when shooting off bench rest bags.

    For a thumb? On the bottom of the stock?

    How much practice would it take for my thumb to move the other side of my hand? ;)

    It's for your support hand. Not your firing hand.

    Helps keep the rifle steady when the butt isn't sitting on a bag.

    ....ding.....ding.....ding......we have a winner!!

    You actually use your secondary hand palm down, sliding your four fingers to the far side of the stock, and your thumb to the near side, and the indent of the hook cradles in the web of your hand. Some shooters use this hand to steer the gun.
