Default Trigger finger blister

I went to the range today and put a couple hundred rounds of 40 cal thru my 23 and a couple hundred rounds of 9mm thru my 19. I ended up with a big blister on my trigger finger, has this happened to anyone else? Any suggestions on preventing this from happening again?

Yes this has happened to me before. I did shoot less often but with higher round counts. Now I shoot more and with less rounds and don't get blisters. Not sure how to prevent it other than gloves. I don't wear them because it's not something I would wear everyday in the real world.

I shoot so much that there are large callouses on the inside edge of my trigger finger and the knuckle of my middle finger where it hits the trigger guard. I have to shave them off occassionally and rub Burt's Bees salve in to them so they don't crack open. That's from the Glock. There's another on the first knuckle of my strong hand where it rubs the ambi-safey on my 1911 even though I've rounded the edges. I believe I spend an inappropriate amount of time shooting. Many guys use adhesive tape on the problem spots too.

Shoot more. It will go away. Eventually

Yup, that's what it sounds like. Now I just need to find the time.

Serval years ago i cut about half of the tip of my trigger finger off and the remaining of dont have much meat on it . So i put smooth triggers in all of my glocks then i take a piece emery cloth and sand the trigger saftey down so it is flush with the trigger face when it is deppressed.

I have all compact & subcompact triggers replaced with the smooth trigger of the full size guns. The serrated triggers can be annoying and rough on the finger.

Add me to those suggesting the smooth trigger. I don't even consider it a mod. It's a must have IMO. The only reason the compacts and subcompacts have them is to meet the points requirement for importation.

Will the full size trigger assemblies fit in the compact glocks?

^^ I think the subcompacts have a specific trigger bar that only fits them. Someone will be able to verify that shortly.
