    Tyler trigger shoe bad?

    I was wondering how you guys here feel about tyler's trigger shoes,I've read where some people say they are dangerous why? I've looked at and shot some j-frame revolvers with them and feel for me they really steady my trigger pull. I ask as I've ordered one and a grip adapter for my colt cobra today as I like these on revolvers. thanks for any help guys.

    While I do not have one, I've seen many posts where people are happy with them.

    I've never used them and the only thing I could conceive as being dangerous is if the trigger shoe extends past the outside of the trigger guard where it could snag when holstering,

    That's the problem. For bullseye target shooting, where the pistol is taken to the range in a shooter's box, it's not a problem. For a holster gun, highly NOT recommended.

    I'd agree with this. IMO, a trigger shoe is a target shooting accessory, not a carry accessory. OMO, YMMV.

    I did put a Tyler T-Grip (they shipped really fast, too) onto my S&W Model 15-4 snubnose a few weeks ago, and I really like it.

    Ok but if the trigger shoe doesn't extend past the trigger guard and my holster can accommodate it do you think it should be ok then?

    As other have cautioned, trigger shoes are a target shooting accessory, not recommended for carry guns. Stock Tyler shoes are wider than the trigger guard. You could have a narrower shoe custom made if you really want one. Go here for the particulars.

    Remember, too, that trigger shoes attach to the trigger by friction supplied by two tiny set screws. They've been known to come loose at inconvenient times.

    Still, I would not recommend one for a carry gun.

    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,

    Have your smith order a wide trigger from S&W for you. Trigger shoes are a fantastic way to lock up a revo.

    I would highly recommend learning to shoot well without any add ons. Just one more thing to go bad , when things really go bad.
