Unfortunately the gap is a necessary evil, during recoil reduction the trigger guard needed the room to move. It may be a problem for someone with little hands as far as the trigger reach. I run several warrants, 5 days a week and have yet to have anything get caught on the weapon. If something is getting in that close of a proximity to your trigger finger you have bigger issues than the gap. Accessory lighting would be more prone to such an incident. Aesthetically, the gap is somewhat annoying but that's the extent of it, unless, as I said, you have small hands. Until someone makes one specifically for this gun, just wanted to let folks know this is an option if they have a need, as I did.
