    It won't matter what trigger pull you have if your dead. Whatever #'s pull the shooter is the most accurate with, is what should be in the firearm.

    Don't know what I think about this - would love to believe that, but you clearly have more faith in the legal/court system and intelligence of a jury of your "peers" than I do. Besides, I see no need to modify the trigger on my EDC.

    I think it's probably a fine line to walk legally. But, a good shoot is a good shoot if you live in free America. JMHO

    Personally, I don't carry a firearm that has been worked on in anyway. I think consistency of the pull and competency of the shooter may be more important than having a "hair" trigger if you ever find yourself in a courtroom.

    I would love to sit on a case where an overzealous prosecutor tried to tie trigger pull to being a gun maniac. There are prosecutors like that out there but they often get their butts chewed by the jury in the end. And a loss in court does hurt their record.

    Nor do I..My weapon is fine from factory....Now my Dad would never accept factory trigger pull....If you are justified in killing a man it matters not what you use or how you use it. Unless you cause collateral damage.
    Folks ask why I carry two guns...Well if I did not I'd be off balance and walk in circles!

    I like a light trigger.

    The trigger on my semi-auto is double action for the first shot. So it is like carrying a revolver. Every shot after that is single action. I like it that way, don't use any safety but still feel safe.

    IMHO, I would not buy a gun if I didn't like it. Both my CC guns are DAO, and I don't care what the trigger pull is if I can hit what I am shooting at. I personally do not like DA/SA for a gun that I might need to shoot in an emergency with adrenalin running high, I prefer consistency of having it be the same every time. If I had to guess, my LC9 and LCP are about 7-8# DAO, but whatever they are it is right out of the box, and I practice with them so I am comfortable with it.

    In answer to the initial question, if my gun had an extremely light trigger pull, I would prefer that it has a good manual safety to help prevent ND.

    You should take your own advice. Research those Ayoob stories.
