    Actually yes it is designed both for your firing grip and for posting up against a fixed barrier when firing. That's the way European police and military forces shoot and that is what it is there for. You will not win a tender for police or military pistol sales in Europe without it.

    Sorry for my ignorance, but I've been carrying and shooting for over 50 years. I have no idea how the square and protruding trigger guard helps my firing grip in any way at all. I use the standard two handed grip and the front of the guard has never come in to play.

    As far as winning bids for european contracts, I really don't care. Perhaps if I were a rep for Glock bidding on those contracts I would, but I'm not so I don't.

    My question was aimed at those who carry a 43 for self defense, noe european government buyers.

    Outdoor channel Craig Bodington is shown over and over shooting pistols with that finger ln the trigger guard and it slips off every time and he regrips the gun every time. Ahhhhh! Grrrrr!

    I don't know, but I shoot them better that way than without. I like it because it allows the support hand to be higher on the gun.

    It's really not hard to round it off if you want to do it yourself. You probably have everything needed to do the job if you have even the most basic dremel tool and sandpaper. Just mark the shape and go at it. BUT, take it slow, it's easy to take off, VERY HARD to put back on

    Personally, I don't care one way or the other, I don't extend my off hand trigger finger and really don't even notice the squared guard any more. Really don't know if it affects concealing that much, but to each his own.

    The site doesn't like large photos, sometimes you have to reduce them to under a megabyte or so before they'll post.

    There was a school of thought years ago where the support hand pulled the gun back toward the holding hand, while the holding hand pushed the gun toward the support hand, thus forming a "vise grip" that controlled the gun well. The knurled flat on the front of the trigger guard played into that method. It is very effective.
