Trigger Finger Getting Bruised With LC9s

I have a LC9s, which I really like. I have many rounds through it with no malfunctions, but my trigger finger is getting bruised when I shoot and I can't quite figure out what is causing it.

Does anyone else have this issue, and can anyone suggest what might be causing it and possibly offer a solution?

Thanks.

I ran into this issue when I first got mine. The solution for me was to more of the finger tip than the pad of the finger.

Yup, there is too much curve on the trigger and the trigger safety pinches you when pulled.. I'm really hoping someone develops a flat replacement trigger for it..

Do a Google search on "pistol trigger pinches" and you will find lots of posts about people having the same issue.

Notice that virtually every pistol (bladed or not )
has received complaints.

I've had that happen with other pistols. At the range, my simple solution is to put a band aid on my trigger finger or wear shooting gloves. In a SD situations, you not going to notice any trigger finger pinch.

More often than not, in my experience teaching handgun classes, shooters that get beat up trigger fingers aren't properly following through on the trigger during recoil.

On the other hand (so to speak), no problems with mine.

Could be, but I have owned and shot thousands of rounds through different pistols and have never experienced this problem with any of the other guns.

Yes, I had this problem and it was very frustrating. I tried to live with it by
changing my finger on the trigger and by using a band aid on my trigger finger, but this just didn't work for me.


I took the trigger out of the gun and it come apart into two pieces by drifting
out a pin. I polished the middle piece where my trigger finger touched it, put it back together and this worked for me.


Look on you tube for a video on how to disassemble the gun.

Hope this helps

Also experienced pinched trigger finger. Think it is the trigger safety pinching skin in the trigger groove.

Dang...I thought I was in on this conversation...must be on another forum

I had enough trouble with my trigger digging into my fingerprint grooves that I've filed the 'split' trigger points to ease the sharpness and hopefully keep me from bleeding on the gun!

I'm afraid my LC9s has lost some stature in my carry rotation since I added a Walther CCP(best out of the box carry "grip feel" of any I've tried...also no trigger stab!)...but I do plan to put a couple dozen rounds through the Ruger tonight. The Ruger serves a slightly different purpose vs the CCP and it is currently my most concealable pistol.

I'm hoping this last trigger amendment is a charm. It's tough enough to hold on to this little carry piece without having blood as a lube!!!

How many rounds can you fire thru your CCP before it gets too hot?

Reviews and a friend who has one says about 3 mags full and things need to cool down. It that your experience?

I'm only up to 50 rounds or so per session and it gets warm; but not hot. This is a mix of 115, 124, 147 grain ammo in target and defense rounds. Full mags for each string; but not rapid fire. Maybe 1 second between rounds...two mags per string.

Great pistol so far!!! I should pull the trigger on the Remora holster I worked up.

Bit of an update...I fired a box of Blazer 124 target ammo in fairly short order and the slide got darned toasty(front serrations area). Others have talked about the frame getting very warm; but that was not the case with mine. Normal operation without grabbing the front of the slide would be of no concern. Grabbing the front serrations would surely get your attention. I don't really see this as a problem; but I wouldn't want to fire off a box and put the CCP in my pocket!!!
