It's the trigger safety. After a couple hundred rounds, the pad on my trigger finger gets a bit raw and sensitive too. I think it's because that safety still sticks out very slightly even when fully depressed. The pressure on the pad of your finger is not evenly distributed across the trigger face - it's concentrated a little more along that thin edge.

Not sure what to do about it though. :(

check the edges of the trigger safety.

Hmm, I never had a problem with this and I tend to put at least 300 rounds down range every time I take my XD-9 to the range. I find the trigger very comfortable. I maybe you are not applying pressure on the trigger evenly.

Check your finger position when firing. What I noticed when it happened to me is that my finger was low on the trigger almost along the trigger guard causing the bottom corner of the trigger safety to dig a hole.
I made a conscience effort to keep my finger at the center of the trigger until it became natural and that helped. I also noticed the grip changed slightly for the better.

This is as far as the trigger safety can be pressed on my XD9. (I removed the magazine and triple-checked the chamber before taking the pic, btw.) The pic may look like I'm not pushing it all the way in, but that is as far as it will go.

Mine goes in just a liiiiiittle further than that... the bottom is flush.

Hey R/T performance!

I've had the same problem, and it was an easy fix. With the trigger fully depressed, and the safety lever in it's fire position, I leveled out the safety with the rest of the trigger. To get it flush to your trigger, use a round file or a dremel tool to get rid of the excess. The lever is a polymer so it doesn't take much to file it down even to the rest of the metal trigger. Go slowly and do a little at a time and check for comfort, and for function. For my XD40 Tactical, it made all the difference in the world in my performance. Good luck and take it slow.

I find that it's the bottom of the trigger, not the safety, that bother's me most. I'd like it to be a bit straighter, i.e., no as much arc to it.
