How to grip a small 1911

I am using a Kimber Ultra Carry CDP and while training the aluminum checkered back strap is digging into the pinky side of my palm and after 500 rounds it almost digs a hole in that cushioned side of the palm.

My question is, should I train the grip to go into the seam of the palm, have a softer back strap installed or just shut up and take it like a man?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated (except the "shut up..." part) as well as offers to take this gun off my hands for a Glock 30 + other gun.

Thanks in advance,

I am not sure if the Ultra Carry you have has a alloy frame. If so the recoil is going to be somewhat sharp with the 3 inch barrel. Those little guns will recoil for sure and I would only suggest that you try using lighter loads or shoot fewer rounds to keep your hand from being battered.
