    Default Control of Recoil

    I had this thought. 1/2" extension to the bottom of the trigger for the index finger support to rest and control recoil? This would have to be done at the trigger manufactured.

    Your idea is not clear. Are you talking about the index finger of the support hand, an an extension on the bottom of the trigger GUARD?

    If so, there are some manufacturers already doing something like it, on some models. Not an extension, but a small lip, to keep the support hand index finger in place on the FRONT of the trigger guard, to help control muzzle rise. The CZ P07 is a good example, with a lip and texturing on the front of the trigger guard.

    I don't know how well it works, I don't use a grip with my index finger on the trigger guard.

    I'm wondering what the small stub may irritate the index finger.

    I doubt it would, not really different than finger grooves on the grip. A firm grip and pressure in the frontstrap of the guard should prevent movement or rubbing that would irritate, unlike certain triggers, which can irritate because you have to reduce the pressure to allow the trigger to move forward to reset.

    If you want to expertly control recoil watch Mike Seeklander videos on YouTube regarding proper grip and use of the support hand. Your targets will love u

    I think putting your index finger on the trigger guard weakens your grip.

    Possibly so. And the further the leverage or pressure is away from the bore, the more mechanical advantage is obtained.
