    Default Trigger Finger 44 mag

    I have a Ruger 44 mag and the first time I was at the range to try it out I cut the top of my trigger finger. I probably went through 30 rounds and then I could not shoot anymore. Any thoughts on what I should do?

    Default trigger finger

    I don't know what model Ruger .44 you have, but it sounds like there is a sharp edge that is contacting the top of your trigger finger, inside the trigger guard, probably on the edge of the opening the trigger protrudes out of. I'd take a stone to the offending edge, which you might find easily because it has a little bit of your flesh or blood on it. Once you locate and smooth the edge, wear thin shooting gloves next time.

    Default Trigger finger issues with Ruger

    It is a curse with the Ruger single actions and heavy recoil. The Ruger Blackhawks with heavy recoiling loads just are not confortable for most people.

    I solved the problem many years ago by buying a S&W Model 29! On a double action the trigger figer is at the back of the guard - not in the middle like a SA. Of course the grips are different also.

    It's a Ruger thing, unfortunately. Some of their edges are a little crisp. Mine hasn't cut me, but it felt like it once when I wasn't gripping tightly enough. The grip has to be consistent every time.

    I've been thinking of buying a trigger shoe for mine to cover some of its sharp edges. It probably won't help with your particular issue, but http://www.t-grips.com/ has some.
