    I shoot my first IPSC match today with a Glock model 22. I noticed after the first stage that evertime I shot the trigger was pinching my finger. How can you keep it from doing that? One gunsmith there said to take a dremal tool to the bottom of the trigger housing.Thanks

    Try this, push the trigger safety all the way in, it sticks out just a little bit doesn't it? Take a small knife and scrape till it's flush with the trigger. This will take the sting out when the gun is fired

    Feel underneath the trigger. There is some slight roughness on the inside of the trigger guard?

    Smooth it and the "pinch" will be gone.

    I used a small diamond hook sharpener on mine-no more pinch.

    I believe it was the safety too long. I scraped it down flush with the trigger and that took care of the pinch. Thanks

    I ran into that with a new M23 serrated trigger.
    Swapped it out with a smoothie and the problem was gone.
    Got a nice blister from it though.
