I have a gen III Glock 19. The other day I put a hundred rounds or so through it, and my middle finger started hurting where it touches the bottom of the trigger guard almost immediately. This has not occurred with my Glock 26 (smooth finger grooves - genII?) or any other handgun I own.

Anybody else experience this? Thoughts?

Never had a problem like that.

I remember when I went to an indoor range to try out a bunch of pistols and when I shot the Glock 19, I remember a finger was hurting, but I don't remember which finger. I thought it was my index finger, but it was so long ago (maybe a year and a half), it may have been my middle finger.

My wife would have that problem when shooting the G30 with factory ammo. Not with the G19.

Try a .40 cal Glock. Ouch.

I have a rough spot right in that exact spot. If I shoot about 600 rnds it rubbs into a blister.

I think it is your grip style. My grip style works, so I deal with the blister and callous. If I'm going to be training a lot, I'll try to remember to tape it up first...

I have noticed a little less with the Gen II PD trade in I bought, so I agree that you prob are getting a lot of grip on the finger grooves. Again, I'm not changing my grip, so it's deal with the rub or tape it up...

it used to happen to me all the time for the first 5-6 range session and now I don't even notice it. Don't worry it will stop

That's exactly what I wanted to hear. Thanks brother.

Maybe if you use your middle finger more often it wont hurt as much. I usually practice this technique while driving to and from work in rush hour....I have no pain while I shoot.

Get out the dremel and take a little of the trigger guard off.

Same problem here. My grip style is a high 1911 type. When I started shooting my 35 I delevolped a blister on the inside of my middle finger (part closest to the trigger guard). After growing some balls I filed down the plastic in this area. And now little to no pain. When I have to shoot a students Glock 35 (stock and untooled) back comes the pain/blister.
If you shoot "a lot" of rounds you should build up some tough skin in this area.

If you'd quit flipping it off everytime it kabooms...

The finger grooves were not a big fan of the way I grip a gun. So, I took a bench grinder to it one day and ground off the grooves so my fingers could go where they needed to...... FIXED IT. Now my finger fits a whole lot better and feels great. You will still get a few rubs as you adjust to shooting, but this helped me and my preferance.

I used some sand paper to smooth it up after I was done. Like I said I used a bench grinder, it isn't a science, just used some care and knocked those puppies off there.

Oh yeah, Popeye used to hurt his fingers alot. He soaked them in Olive Oil..........

arthritis?

Same problem here. It wasn't a big deal when I was shooting more and doing dry fire stuff every day. Keep practicing so you'll build up a callous and then it won't hurt, as much.
