    To empower you to use a finger or fingers from your support hand to stabilize the weapon.

    Oh, I thought it was just something to make your gun uglier and get caught on the outside of your holster. :)

    I use it by hooking my finger around it and pulling backwards. This squeezes the pistol against my shooting hand. It gives my support hand a higher grip and reduces muzzle climb.

    The true reason for the square trigger guard is as an area to press the gun against a barrier. Such as riot police pushing it against the top edge of a riot shield to stabilize the weapon.
