I feel kind of like an idiot, but I think I used at lest 5 minutes removing the gimbal protection on my P3A. I found (and still find) it very hard to get off and I'm afraid of hurting the gimbal itself. Imagine the irony of breaking the gimbal when removing the protection...

How do you guys do it? Where do you place your fingers (on gimbal and on the protection)? Is it only mine that sits so hard?

Don't push it into the groove that hard, just hard enough for it to stay on, its pressure fit, at least on mine.

I just slide it to the right while holding the camera . After doing it a few times it get easier. Putting it on is the trick. Even now it takes a double take to get it to slide in. As they say,practice. And more practice.

How do you guys do it?
Hold the camera with your left hand and slide the gimbal lock out with your right hand.

I hate taking it on and off. Always feel like I'm going to rip the camera off.
