I have the S and my finger gets pinched really bad. Ruger told me to place my finger differently...........in the heat of needing my firearm, I'll take time to place my finger correctly just for them.
It IS the design of the trigger and guard. My son and daughter have no problem with pinches at all. Found that our fingers come off the hand differently. Mine curves and I cannot change that. Change the guard. Other than that, I like the gun. Great size.

"in the heat of needing my firearm"
Is that when you are going to really notice your finger might be pinched? How about the reason for "needing" your firearm? Will you tell your target/miscreant to wait a moment while you complain? Can there be a trace of reality being inserted here?

An LC9 trigger is literally a drop in fit. The ONLY difference is that the trigger on the 9s is slotted and drilled for the trigger safety.
If anyone would like to donate the materials, such as a flat trigger for an LC9 and small piece of aluminum stock, I'd be more than happy to take a crack at fabricating a flat trigger with trigger safety. I make no promise on results or return time. Could be a waste of money. Could be awesome, you never know.

Bear in mind, my own conversion above and my offer to try to fab a flat trigger with a safety, is NOT a "trigger kit". I find the stock trigger pull to be sexy as hell and slick as snot. I just don't like trigger safeties.
I am also working on a mod to reduce the length of the trigger pull. With my smallish hands, it's a chore to reach most triggers, and my finger placement is way off by the time the striker is released, usually resulting in sending my shots wild and to the left if I'm not paying very close attention. I hope to get started on that mod tomorrow.

I'll try to make a video tonight, showing the conversion.

Also bear in mind that any mods made to the fire controls are strictly at your own risk. It is NOT my fault if anyone shoots themselves or their family pet in the testicles, nor if anyone shoots their spouse, same sex partner, significant other, or their child and blow their brains all over the wall. Also not my fault if someone shoots the curio cabinet housing their "My Little Pony" figurine collection, mmkay?

I'm very interested in a trigger mod for both my s and sPro as the curve is just too tight for my fingertip to fit in comfortably. I've eased the sharp points of the trigger guard 'slot'; but the curved tip still wants to slice into my finger "print" grooves. I may practice more with just the tip of my finger as it will fit the curve without being cut by the forked end; but we're talking about moving halfway from the mid-pad(my usual) area to halfway off the tip of my finger...not the most secure arrangement.

The adjustments you speak of are spot on, IMO...shortened take up and a flatter trigger would do wonders for my experience with this pistol.

I will never modify my trigger on my pistol if MY Little Pony Collection could ever be endangered.

I don't think I could do this with the stock trigger with trigger safety, but I'd bet money that with a little heat, a few light taps from my jeweler's hammer on my jeweler's anvil, I could straighten the safetyless LC9 DAO trigger a bit.
Since I'm not using the stock trigger, I may do an attempt on that.

I don't blame ya, that's why mine are in a safe.

I had this problem with the trigger at the very beginning. The more I shot it, the more I was able to handle the recoil and get to know the gun. Don't blame the gun, just train more.
The LCPS is a fantastic firearm, extremely accurate, easy to control and after training Properly, a MILD gun to shoot.

Not sure if we are talking about the same pistol; but I have never had a trigger try to poke a hole in my fingertip...at least not out of the two dozen or so that I've owned.

Hole, no. But I've had a Sig P938 try to eat it.

My LC9s has never hurt my finger but a Buckmark tried to eat my left thumb when it got too close to the open slide.

I let my thumb get caught behind one of those once. It was really stupid. I was a young kid about 10 years old and for some idiotic reason that I can't remember, I stuck my thumb up behind the slide with the intention of stopping it from cycling. Trying to fire single shot.

The slide was unperturbed and cycled just fine despite my stupidity. I've never done that again.

Ah, the ol' thumb vs slide battle. I may be wrong but does thumb even have a single victory in this fight?
