    I'm still in limbo about dehorning the front of my G29's trigger guard or not.I did this to my gen 2 G22 and it turned out great thanks to several folks on here.But i'm not so sure about this one.When i got it was in perfect shape with less than 100 rounds though it.I already polished the barrel to make it Bright stainless and that made the gun look even better but i'm almost afraid i would go to far to buff the bur off.

    I agree. Why would you want too? I've never had a snag issue because of it. Other than just not liking the looks, I don't see whats wrong with it.

    I did mine but it wasn't for looks. I find that the horn tends to catch on many of my holsters. I like the ability to easily reholster w/o it catching on anything.

    I got no problem with that. It looks great. If it looks good, and it works for ya - run with it! :)

    I thought maybe there was some functional rationale (snagging, etc) hence my "why"? I didn't mean that to imply "don't do it". :cool:

    Sure, go ahead, why not? It's only a cosmetic modification, something to show your friends. Functionally, it does nothing for you at 3AM, when you are suddenly awakened, fumbling for your gun and light, adrenaline pumping and trying to be quick, be sure and be accurate...

    I wouldn't mind Glock stop putting that tang on there to be honest. It doesn't serve any real tactical purpose and the gun just looks better without it IMO.

    If you like it then do it. Personally, I like the Block look.

    It would mess with the fit of a Crimson Trace Laserguard, and maybe some other accessories; but if you have no plans for any of that, go for it.

    Those who like the grip style that places the index finger of the support hand on the front of the trigger guard will find the "hook" very helpful.

    Do what you want, but I wouldn't mess with it.

    In my experience, Dremmel + Polymer = "Holy crap, what the h#!! have I done??!!!??":shocked:

    It does serve a purpose, just not one many ccw'ers would be conversant with or be likely to use. Shave it of if it doth offend thee.

    Not so much. Also doesn't help much with fit/retention in some holsters.
