Am I the only one that the little hump on the pistol safety grip of a 1911 hurts my hand when shooting it? 😎

Yes. ;)

They do make grip safeties without the bump. Memory bump as it's called by one manufacturer.
But if you shoot with your thumbs on the thumb safety shelf, strong hand's thumb first, offhand on top, sometimes a pocket can form in your palm and that GS bump will be appreciated to help engage the safety.

Or you can start wearing tactical shooting gloves :cool:

My hands are small enough I don't really notice it.

Man, OD*, that's just beautiful! I've had one of these on my "sure would like to have" list for a while now. Gorgeous! And I'm sure it shoots just as great as it looks.
Thanks amigo. (y) I really loved the looks of it when it arrived, liked it enough that my Colt Super .38 is at Nighthawk now getting the same sights, finish, dehorn, and blending the frame and mainspring housing.

Just received and not yet fired. Will put several hundred rounds thru it Monday and begin carrying it as soon as it gets cleaned. An Alchemy Custom Weaponry Classic Carry (Commander) in God's Caliber.

Lol! 😂

I have tactical gloves. That "memory" bump still bothers me on my 1911. I like it but definitely don't carry it as much anymore because of that and I don't wear tactical gloves for EDC. 😎

Naw! I just put it in the safe and take it to the range every now and then and carry what I know I can count on; one of my HK's or Walther's for good measure. 😂 😎
