Decent rant, though it got a little boring. Could you lead with the name calling next time, or try throwing in some of these cute little faces.

Oh yeah, because your Mr. Know it all right? The guy with the defensive skills, trying to tell everyone else how to spend their money...

You did attack me with your post. How does your first paragraph refer to what the OP said?
Then you contradict yourself and say that the APEX Trigger may be a better trigger option. Your saying to get into defensive training, instead of dolling up my gun... yet its a better trigger option?

New guy here. Guess I have to learn as I go. Read a good article on choosing a handgun KR Training - Central Texas' best firearms training and found my short fingers are causing an improper alignment between gun & wrist.

I have an M&P9 full size. I found if I removed the back strap, (smallest),
finger placement got a better. It appears no dirt or dust can enter the weapon without the backstrap. If I can move the trigger back an 1/8" it the fit would be perfect.

Can this be done? Also. I have a (9mm shield) coming.

TIA.

How are you holding it? Would you mind posting a picture gripping the gun with your strong hand?

I did a quick google search and found this article that might be of use to you: The Combat Grip

Thanks for the reply CMZ1234:
One thing I should mention is apparently I was left handed and the nuns changed that. Pistols fit comfortably in my left hand allowing the trigger finger to be at a 90 degrees & not press against the side of the frame. Btw, I'm also left eye dominate. At age 72 I prefer not to learn again. lol.

Right Hand: With the beaver tale aligned between the thumb knuckle and index fist knuckle in line w/wrist & forearm makes the tip of the trigger finger barely reaching the trigger and pressed against the side of the frame. For the pad of the index finger to fit the trigger the beaver tale would be over the thumb knuckle.

Sure it can. You can install a pretravel stop, or have one of the gunsmiths on this forum do it for you.

My fingers are rather long, about a 10" hand span, but I prefer the trigger to be back a bit also. I find this provides a better angle for my trigger finger, so I can pull straight back at speed without pushing to one side or the other.

You're gonna love the fit of that Shield.
