I like the definition of 'tactile reset' :yup:
I prefer the reset of my Glock over the M&P and XD. I used to say that it was because of a shorter reset, but I realize now that it's because of that in conjunction with the tactile reset.
What limited training that I have, I've done primarily with 1911 and Glock. I believe that there is a similarity between the tactile resets of the two platforms.
When I tried the XD, and more especially the M&P, I was back on target ready for the second trigger press but couldn't find that tactile reset as quickly as on a Glock or 1911.
I suppose it wouldn't matter, if you only trained with one pistol platform.
Additionally, as a personal theory, short-fingered people like myself benefit greatly from a shorter reset, than those with longer fingers. It's a lot of work to make a long trigger reset and pull with munchkin hands :hand5:
