    Hey all,
    I searched for "trigger shoe" on the website, but only found 2-3 remarks that deal with the trigger shoe. Is it worth getting? Does it hinder the gun from going into a snug holster? Does it stay in place, or do the set screws wiggle loose often?

    Save your money. From what I have read, they are more trouble then they are worth. If your trigger is hurting your finger, do a little sanding on it.

    Sirs, I put about a half inch section of surgical tubing on my trigger and it has been a huge help to me. It stays in place, reduces the shock, and serves as a bit of a trigger boot as well, as the trigger seems to have less distance to travel to set up the next shot.

    IF you add anything to the trigger, consider if the trigger is thicker than the guard when you push the pistol into a tight holster, or pocket. By makiing it easier for your trigger finger, don't make it easy to ND (yes it would still be negilgance)

    VERY good point, but, no, it seems to fit. Everything slides like glass.

    The tubing is thin but lined inside with something kind of silicone. It's from my mother's old stethoscope, which is a kind of high-class brand, though antique. When I slipped the tubing onto the trigger, the clear gel shifted around to the front and back, exactly where it was needed. I went from having a gun I couldn't really handle to one that I could. It helps even more than the bicycle tube grip (not shown above). Of course, YMMV!

    Just put one on mine, so we'll see if it works out. My finger was killing me after 50 rounds
