Yes, I had the same problem many years ago with the Ruger Security/Speed/Service-Six revolvers I used to shoot in competitions. After a while, I would automatically round the rear edge of the trigger (both sides) as soon as I bought a Ruger DA revolver, to prevent the problem. I'd remove the trigger, clamp it in a padded vise, and use a strip of emory cloth or other abrasive cloth in a back-and-forth shoe-shine motion on the rear edge. Then I'd lube it heavily to prevent any corrosion from taking hold in the newly exposed metal. Sometimes, I'd also modify the little bump on the frame where the narrow trigger guard flares out to meet the wide frame at the rear of the trigger guard; that little bump would occasionally cause the same troubles during long shooting sessions.
Never had this difficulty with S&W, Colts, or other brands (mid-size and larger frames). I ran into it every now and then with the small J-frame S&Ws, but I no longer shoot those very often.

Going by local news reports, if you start Turning Your Life Around, you will inexplicably wind up face down in a convenience store parking lot at 0300 with a bag of somebody else's money in your hand, a chalk outline, and half a magazine's worth of the taxpayers' bullets in your ass. -- Tamara K.
