    Anyone know where I can buy the rubber bumpers that go on the back of the trigger guard to stop the recoil on the middle finger. Jerry O'Connor

    A piece of dense foam and double sticky tape might work.

    I have one I no longer use; it's almost new. PM or email me if you're still looking for one.

    Here is one that comes in two varities. I recommend the spring mounted style. But both types work well.

    A thought, if you need a bumper wouldn't that mean your're not holding the grip tight enough to eliminate the gun sliding back in your grip?

    The bumpers just make matters worse. Waste of money. Do what another said here and have the trigger set back. If your shooting a P-gun MX type then they make a trigger group. The trigger adjusts about 3/8" rearward of the standard.

    Jon Hataway probably has some more of that black electrical tape if the other deal doesn't work out. AJ

    The problem might not necessarily have to do with trigger placement or hand grip strength. It might also have to do with one or more of the following:

    1. Insufficient length of pull.

    2. A poorly shaped grip area on the stock.

    3. A poorly shaped trigger guard.

    4. A "nonstandard" hand configuration.

    Or he could be shooting a PFS stock that comes back and whacks his finger, and he's tired of getting whacked like some mole sticking his head out of the hole. lol

    PFS stocks don't work that way Hauxfan. If anything they would buffer the rearward movement and help relieve the punch on the shooter's finger. Think about it.

    Barry, I owned one and it whacked my finger. That is one of the reasons I got rid of it. Think about it.

    The PFS is probably a good invention, but it does recoil into itself and part of that recoil is the gun coming backward and part of that gun is the trigger guard. Ouch.......I had enough.

    I think the trigger hand grip is the problem. If you're bird finger starts too close to the back of the trigger guard, it's going to get wacked on recoil. Move the trigger back and your hand will be further away from the back of the trigger guard.

    Call it what you want....It's a software problem, not a hardware problem.
