    I appreciate the mentioning of the cold weather glove factor for the removal of the front of the trigger guard.

    In a similar idea, in one of his writings I believe Massad Ayoob mentioned something about certain double action automatics having enough room for gloves in cold weather.

    If you wear heavy gloves, trigger guard room is something to consider.
    Bill Jordan was 66 tall and had hands that were freakishly large even for a man of his size. It was definitely a factor.

    Trivia: The S&W Texas Ranger commemorative M19 had the trigger guard narrowed a la Jordan.
