LC9 Trigger Finger Problem

I have about 500 rounds through my LC9 now, and really like it except for one thing; the bottom of my trigger finger rubs on the inside of the trigger guard by the time the shot breaks. My finger gets pretty sore and nearly to a blister. At first I thought it was getting bumped from recoil somehow, but now I've figured out the trigger guard rub.

Have any of you run into this? My hand is relatively small for some men, but I've never noticed that my fingers were too much out of proportion. I guess that after enough practice my finger will get calloused enough not to bother me as much. But I'm wondering if I'm the only LC9/LCP shooter running into this.

Shoot through the blistering till it becomes ultra-manly callus!

Some on trigger finger rub on the LC9 trigger pull forum. You'll have to read through it. Some-one has a mod. Personally the Gallaway trigger kit shortens the pull by less then half, would help.

Since I wear shooting gloves, that is not a problem. But it would help if the trigger had a different shape to it.

I had the same complaint. With the deep pull my finger dragged on the top of the trigger guard and a little drag on the frame above the trigger. My trigger finger was on an awkward angle, due to the deep break point. I solved this by installing the Galloway trigger kit. The kit shortens the pull by half and the break is moved forward to near the middle of the trigger guard. The trigger pull is reduced about 1 pound of pulling pressure. Guessing the kit will sell for around $70. Galloway will not have the kits available until around the middle to end of June. It was money well spent as the stock trigger pull was bad. Many people say you have to get used to the pull. There are so many complaints about the poor trigger pull on the stock LC9. There is no getting used to the trigger pull with the Galloway kit installed. It now pulls short and smooth, like a well designed gun should.

Ruger should have made the stock trigger pull better. They will now face a lot of competition from the new Smith M&P Shield. It is very similar in all aspects to the LC9 except it comes stock with a good trigger pull.

I have a number of YouTube videos up for the LC9. I show the full installation of the trigger kit. How to make an easy trigger stop. How to improve the trigger shape. Search YouTube for: robkarrob11.

I've put a little over 600 rounds through my LC9 and I get the same blister on the bottom of my finger. If I don't use the very end of my finger to pull the trigger this will happen..
My Smith 442 trigger is curved a lot more than the LC9 and keeps the meat on the bottom of my finger from dragging against the trigger guard during reset..
