Man, yesterday shooting my glock, my finger was killing me... no problem with my sig or buckmark... that stupid safety on the glock trigger is not friendly. Anyone have a similar experience? Any solution? My finger placement is trigger in middle of first fat pad...like always.

Any solution?

Man up? :p

Seriously, it was weird for me at first too, you'll get used to it.

i noticed it too also the wide triggerguard would sometimes punish me if i held it less than firmly

Same thing happens to me if I shoot my Glock a lot.

Which Glock? Some have a serrated trigger that bothers some shooters. Neither of my Glocks has that, but I read that others have just smoothed out the serrations. Hearsay, so don't take it to the bank. (I think there are a couple of threads on Glock Talk about that situation).

I replaced my trigger with one from glockworx. The face of their safety is almost as wide as the trigger, you wont even notice it.

I have no idea what the OP is talking about... I've shot thousands of rounds and never even thought about it. You must have some woman hands!

I'm thinking that may be the issue as well. I think you can drop in a smooth one and replace the serrated one

I don't even hardly notice the trigger safety on my XD. I don't know if there is much difference on the Glock. Been a few years since I've even shot a Glock.

The only time mine has ever bothered me (Serrated trigger on Glock 27) was when I hadn't shot in a month or two, and then I shot 150-200 rounds in a couple hours. I got a tiny blister that bothered me for a day or so.

If you choke up on the trigger (pull higher up on it) it shouldn't bother you as much.

haha yaya..my hands are pretty strong, used to olympic lift 350lb etc... I'm pretty new to glock (had one back in the day I didn't shoot much)... just isn't comfortable to my trigger finger, maybe i'll change my positioning.

I sanded out the front of the trigger safety to be flush with the trigger when pressed. It will not disable the safety.

If you have soft, dainty fingers you should have bought a Ruger.

I'm guessing your bar wasn't serrated? Kidding...

Shoot more and you'll develop calluses. It's like playing guitar. It hurts a little as a beginner. As Clint Smith says: Shooting should comforting, not comfortable. Maybe step down a caliber or two so that you can shoot without the pain.:shrug:

I had the same problem -- the serrated trigger and safety on my glock 19 was extremely unpleasant to use. I replaced it with the smooth trigger from a glock 17 and it made a big difference. part is cheap too, like $12 from midway.

needs some breaking in, that's it. Keep dry firing and shooting it.

Why I no longer own Glocks. I'll stick to solid triggers like the ones on my Beretta and Sig.

I will have to check with the females on the Glock shooting team and see if they get sore trigger fingers.:facepalm:

My G22 bothered me while my G30 creates no issues. I ended up selling the G22.

I noticed that, too, shooting Glocks. That blister above is more than what happened to me, which was just a little pinch. I probably won't buy one, but neither will I say, "No, thanks" if someone offers me one to shoot.

Reminds me of a Dire Straits tune...

If yer gonna play hurt you might consider that liquid skin patch bowlers use on their thumb. Ya paint it on and it dries to a film. Stings a bit if you put it on broken skin.

Guys, this issue here is that when you press the trigger safety on any glock trigger (smooth or serrated) the safety does not sit flush with the trigger. thus you have a little bump in the middle of the trigger that really is irritating. I noticed it too, it doesn't hurt at all but it isn't comfortable like a Sig trigger. I may try sanding it down a bit also and see if that helps.

That's the great thing about Glocks! F*** up the sanding job and a new trigger is less than $5 bucks.

my finger didn't blister, its more like bruised inside, like the trigger slaps back into it.. my skin is/was fine. I dunno, I'll have to pay more attention to exactly what is going on next time out.

Stupid problem with a simple solution: DONT BUY GLOCKS.

Your finger will thank you!
