If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?
Never forget that YOU could be the next victim of Prosecutorial Misconduct.
When the prosecutor files charges of manslaughter claiming you had a negligent discharge, that's the trial you get. It doesn't matter that you know you did not have a negligent discharge, and that you intentionally shot him because there was a righteous threat. You're going to be fighting the bogus trumped up charges the prosecutor lays out.
No one, including Ayoob is saying you can't lighten your trigger... Just be aware of some of the pitfalls you may face if you end up with an unscrupulous prosecutor like Mr. Fish did.
If you have the bad luck of drawing such a prosecutor, you may find yourself regretting all those pistol modifications. You can't just go tell the judge, this is a bunch of B.S., and ask for a different prosecutor.
Once the charges read at the arraignment reads manslaughter, instead of murder one, you're hosed. For murder one, you can use the affirmative defense. That you intentionally pulled the trigger because your life was in danger.
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
Do they do a trigger pull weight test on every weapon used in a self-defense shooting? If so, after possibly finding that the trigger pull is outside of factory specs do they then do further testing to see if it was caused by wear, fatigue or possibly tampering on the part of the owner?
Do they test all parts to see if they are original OEM parts?
If that frightens you maybe it's best you leave your sidearm at home and just hope not to be a victim.

Best Choices for Self Defense Ammunition
according to the local law enforcement here, the circumstances under which the SD shooting took place is the most important issue. I live in GA. once the police say it was a justified shooting, case closed and that's the end of it, no civil liability after the fact. anyway, i didn't mean to stir up a hornets nest with my question. thanks for everyones input.
So, in an intentional shooting of another person in self defense, a prosecutor is going to claim that it was an accident? If you are attacked and deadly force is reasonable to defend yourself, it doesn't matter how the bad guy is shot. You can use the affirmative defense in ANY action in which you shoot someone.
This is why you never seek legal advice from medical professionals on the internet.
Slow is smooth.....smooth is fast.
Ayoob's article is "word to the wise". I'd heed it.
Like I always said "a good shoot is a good shoot", despite other findings.
One more step and it's on!
IMHO it's a non issue in a SD shooting,the question will be were you legally justified in shooting the perpetrator.
The only scenarios I would think it would come into play is in a civil suit where you had a ND that killed or injured somebody,a lawyer will be pointing out that the lighter trigger made the trigger easier to pull and that negligence in installing the trigger is the reason these children will never see their Daddy again
