Finger on the port?

An interesting solution to the problem of "put the finger away from the trigger" which most of us already do, "AND put the finger in a place that finds a spot that is ALWAYS in the same place in relationship to the trigger so it is muscle memory to find it when needed."

And you know what? The firing port on most semi's is in the same place from model to model. For the most part. There are exceptions, of course. And the port is in the same relationship to the trigger from model to model.

For right handers.

There is a little more variance on the port side of the gun for us Southpaws. But not enough to get yer knickers in a twist.

But no matter what YOUR gun is the same day after day. Getting that extendo finger in a non trigger 'spot' for registration does sound like a good idea.

FYI: For the Revolver Shooters, I was told that the Notches in the Cylinder (on those that have them) is the place to rest the Trigger Finger when the Weapon is Drawn, but may/may not be the Time to Pull the Trigger (if necessary). And it works just fine for the Left-Handed.

Seems like a training issue looking for a problem. Just lay it alongside the frame above the trigger guard. Easier, works for Revolvers and semis, and you don't have to re-learn for each gun you are carrying.
