I finally located a new STI Escort .45 at a gun shop in a small town about 30 miles north of me and went to check it out. It is a beautiful pistol, and verrrry light, but did not "fit" me, especially the price and the trigger. As for the price, this shop wanted almost $150 over the advertised MSRP and wouldn't budge. Now for the trigger. I dry fired it several times always with the same result..no percieved trigger pull, none, zip, nada! It felt like all creep, with no resistance at the break point. The only way I knew it "fired" was by the hammer dropping. Now, I'm a newbie and I'm just wondering is this good or bad to have such a light "hair" trigger?? It seems like it would not be safe to me.
