Not for sure if this is the right place to post but I just did some extensive shooting with the G23 and I believe I have the Glock Knuckle. Is there anything that can be done without permanently modifying the pistol's trigger guard? Would the aftermark beavertails help?
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means, that you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you......
As a lawyer, I smell "class action" law$uit!!
How's your emotional state? Are you in distress? Any "loss of consortium?" (that's a big one).
Did Glock warn you about the Glock Knuckle?
Does your knuckle look like that of a Goblin's?

1. All guns are always loaded.
2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
To be serious here[I can be sometimes], I had that problem with my 22+23 and high round count usage. Taking some fine emery cloth to the underside of the trigger guard fixed it for me. YMMV
The raised "parting line" left by the molding process would wear me bloody after 300-500 rds. HTH

I had a grip reduction and some other work done on my G30 last year. It was done by Cold Bore Custom.
Great work. Not looking to get flamed, just stating my experience if interested.

It's partially a software issue. First make sure you're gripping the gun (whatever gun it is that you're using, it doesn't have to be a Glock to cause this problem) properly and not over-gripping, as DRM noted.
If you are still having the problem, it's then a hardware-software issue: that your physical anatomy just doesn't quite fit the gun. In this case, pursuing grip-related modifications to the gun becomes the definitive solution.
I don't have "Glock-knuckle." For me, the standard Glock grip and surfaces, while I find somewhat awkward feeling subjectively, actually fits pretty well.
I'm an XDm shooter, but there's an area of the trigger-guard on the XDms that hits the middle of the middle phalanx of my middle finger just right, and has, over the years, given me a very focused little callous there.
