Ouch!! Dual Loading SLP mk1 for 3-gun

Hey everyone. Recently my work's gun club has been offering 3-gun matches, and I'm hooked. One of my fellow three-gunners loaned me his SLP for one of the stages (I was planning on getting one in the near future, 3-gun or not) and i fell in love with it. So, long story short I picked one up. Taking his queue with loading, I've been teaching myself to do the load 2 method using Taccom 8-Up rigs. I'm starting to get pretty proficient at it, however if my thumb isn't in the perfect location I'll get it caught in the shell elevator upon ramming the rounds home in the magazine. Needless to say, it hurts enough that I would like to prevent its reoccurence . I'm not sure if any other guns like the Versamax do the same thing, but I wanted to see if anybody has any tips or modifications that i can do that limits the finger-pinchiness of this guy. New hand position, modifying the shell elevator, etc. ?
Generally speaking holes in anti-gun theories are called "facts."
