Well.....the rifle was and is used to escort(march next to the American flag) in the military or at any special event in the honor guard. Then it was slowly introduced to a drill team which then started in schools and then they merged into the colorguard(usually associated with a marching band). Now we spin and toss those same rifles in the air.

Where do you put your hands on a colorguard rifle when tossing a single double and triple Also for a saber Please help i really want to do good in colorguard?

It depends on your guard instructor. But mostly, your right hand two or three inches from the tip of the rifle, and your left hand an inch or so from the spotter (The gold thing). Then for Sabre (For colorguard, it's spelled 'Sabre'), you catch on the black tape that's the farthest to the tip, and on the carriage (The handle). Pretty much the same up until sixes or sevens. Hope that helps you, and don't quit at guard! :]
