    Ouchie :(

    My fingernails keep digging into my palms when I shoot my KZ45.

    Does this happen to anyone else?

    Sometimes. I just keep 'em really short.

    Might I suggest a nice manicure? ;) (For Tactical reasons of course!)

    That has never happened to me, but I haven't fired your KZ45 yet!:neener:

    I shot my KZ like crap tonight.

    I shoot better with my $630 Beretta I don't know why. Cuz it looks better? Probably the carbon fiber :D

    Maybe it was those targets I can't make out my sights against.

    Yep, happens routinely when the fore-to-aft dimension is too short for the length of your fingers and palm. That is why I could never shoot a Grock.

    Change the grip if possible.

    You might try a wider grip.

    4thHorseperson, my KZ45 grip is pretty thick, like a Glock .40 or something. I don't get the problem with my USP45C or Beretta, neither small :confused:

    I trimmed my nails and didn't get it yesterday :D

    Something else to toss in the range bag.
