Years ago I bought an FNP 45 and with my large hands, and poor shooting technique at the time the tip of my trigger finger would get beat up by the mag release. I thought equipment was the solution so I switched to an HK 45 with a paddle release. I was the problem, not the FNP, but none the less, I found I really liked the paddle release. I wish all my autos had it now, including my nicer steel guns. Not my 1911s though. That's wrong.
