    I have a shooting friend who on occasion trigger hand slips off the grip causing either a flinch or a totally missed shot. Seems like the grip is shaped in a way that causes him to reach for the trigger. He handled a gun with a deeper pistol grip that seemed to work. Short of getting a new stock is there any way the grip could be built out (Forward) to bring his hand closer to the trigger ? I do not think his trigger is adjustable. Thanks for any suggestions.

    Customize the grip using bondo. When you get it just right you can paint it or give it to a stock maker to duplicate it in wood. HMB

    I can't seem to access Trainer Hale's web site. What is suggested would be ideal. We do not wish to make any lasting changes at this time. Thanks for the suggestions. Irv

    I have a PFS set up and found the grip to be to short for my larger hand, I found a product called ratgrip website link above that has a heatable polymer material that can be molded to fit. You need a heat gun to work with the material. You can layer it cut it sand it etc. Should you want to remove it you just heat it up and pull it off. I created an extension for the PFS grip and then used the ratgrip material to form fit to my hand and get my index finger in the proper position. I have been shooting it on my PFS for almost a year and it is holding up great. Hope this helps.
