    Question Glock knuckle

    Glock Knuckle

    Anybody here have it, seen it or heard of it? Well, this is what it looks like (click on image to enlarge):

    It's O.K. if you've had it, it's a common problem I see all the time in training classes. Just wondering how many people here suffer from it.

    If you're interested, I have some solutions...

    Yup, I've had it, and not just with Glock. I usually just band aide it and drive on.

    Drop the Glock and get a 'real' gun?

    I've never had the problem with the Glocks I've spent time with. But, I always have a really good, firm grip. So, I don't know.

    I really, really don't like Glocks but have fired all and sundry Glocks enough to get a feel for them. Never had one treat me this way.

    What is that, and did it come from loading magazines? Surely it didn't happen from firing a Gock pistol. If it did, there's something seriously wrong. Any time you get injured doing something, stop immediately. No.....never heard of it seen it, nor experienced it.

    I really, really like Glocks and have never had this new found issue or have I ever heard of it on other forums of which I have been a member. Perhaps some had the issue, but were just too embarrassed to show everyone their wittle owy.

    Lots of guns, especially if they are new to you can cause blisters or scraped skin. Simply a fact of abrasive material moving sharply in your hand over and over again. The solution is more shooting.

    Men with beefy hand or long fingers are prone to getting this. In other words manly hands :D

    Yep. I was a sufferer of Glock Knuckle. Looked just like that too. When I bought my G23, within 200 rounds the first time on the range my knuckle looked just like yours.

    What I found was, the area where my trigger guard meets the front of the grip was rubbing me. No matter how I held the dun, no matter how I tried adjusting my grip, I was still getting rubbed the same.

    Here's what I did. I took a dremel to it. I radiused the curve in the polymer so it fit my finger better and stopped rubbing me. it didn't take much to get it comfortable. Here's a picture.

    Just heard about this last week and someone put on a site that explained it. Has not happened to me with either the 19 or 26 ,so I can't really speak to the issue except to say I've heard about it.

    I have a callus in that spot from shooting my Glock 19s, and it doesn't bother me at all unless I'm doing heavy training from the draw. (Heavy training to me would be somewhere around 500 or so draws with multiple shots per draw within a few days).

    In the case that it does bother me, I just put a piece of athletic tape over the spot, and it's good as new.

    Anyone have pics of a bloody eyebrow after shooting a 7mm mag? Don't see those threads often......LOL! There's defending yourself....shooting.....then being a man. Most men don't whine about their injuries while doing any of the above. All in all, I'm telling truth while at the same time respecting you as a person.
    I simply don't check in here like I used to. Maybe I should just to provide some simple guidance now and then. Other than that....I've had fun this trip. Wishing everyone a happy and wholesome holiday season. This forum is my family. I can't be here as much as I would like. Can I break down and cry at this point....will you still respect me in the morning?

    I've suffered similar punishment from the trigger guard on certain revolvers shooting magnum loads. Haven't experienced it with Glocks or any of my other semi autos though.

    I think you've missed the intent of the post.
