    Simple easy mod...  Perhaps too obvious...

    I recently purchased a P3-AT and added a Crimson Trace Laser to it...  I found after shooting 50+ rounds, my index finger was starting to get chewed up by the plastic edge of the laser body.  With big fingers, every time it is fired, the recoil was hitting my finger.    I did not want to start dremelling on the plastic of the laser (which I had just bought) and realized an easier fix...  
    Run a Piece of Black electrical tape around the inside of the trigger guard over the gap between the two halves of the laser body.  Press firmly over the edges of the trigger guard and trim carefully with X-Acto knife.  Not only does it protect from the plastic edge, but gives it a smooth slick finish to the inside of the guard.  

    I used a real thick tape (mistake) , and will likely change this to a couple layers of the thin stuff, as the edges when they were trimmed came out a little ragged on the sides.  A thinner tape in layers would work much better...
    Just a thought.

    Good idea. I am always amazed at the innovative fixes KT owners come up with to fix problems. This seems to me to be a simple and inexpensive way to solve a potential problem. Great job.

    Only problem with electrical tape is it gets sticky and nasty pretty quick.

    Try maybe a very thin layer of epoxy? Or just using a nail file?
