My rarely shot 26 really digs into my hand sharply with each shot, on the tissue between my thumb and finger. Zero pain in the same shooting session With my 43 or my 19. I had a Gen 3 years ago and it did not hurt, so I tried with and without the backstrap. My understanding is the hump is causing a different grip and mechanically I can see why its hurting and if I had to, I would carry it but I do not have to. I may end up trading out for another 19 or a 45 if given a less than awful hosing. Just disappointed because I believe the problem is me and cant think of a way to “fix” it. Readily admit I am a girly man ahead of any one else saying it.
