    Trigger question

    Hi all!

    Hey I currently have a Taurus Millennium and I really don't like the fact that I have to lift weights with my trigger finger to pull it the required one yard to get it to fire.

    I did dry fire a Kimber 1911 which I would LOVE to get for my daily carry, but I wonder if there are similar pistols out there that have a good trigger? I may get a Kimber, cause they are SOOOO nice, but I don't know what other options there are.

    Thanx!

    I had the same problem with my Ruger P95DC. I got over that by dry-firing with snap caps. That also got me into revolvers.

    I continue to practice this way, however, I still need to know which brand of 1911 also has a good light crisp trigger. I can get the Kimber 1911, basic model for $750 or $775, somewhere around there.Any good guns for less?
    I was told the Springfield XD has a good trigger.

    The single action triggers found in 1911 and their clones will spoil you comparied to double/single action. Try 1911's that you like and pick one with the best trigger, as they vary from pistol to pistol even of the same make and model. Or buy a 1911, or clone and have trigger work done on it.

    There are alot of good pistols out their, I am biased on 1911's because I had the first one issued to me in 1961, and I've owned over 20 of them sense then.

    a 1911 is not the most realable out there, My theory is that newer designs have a shallower feed angle. I have owned some that were not realiable and I own several now that always work.

    I have two Kimbers...and two Glocks.
    Unless you are set on a 1911, my Glock-36 has the thinnest grip of all the Glocks (single stack), and it has a 4.5lb trigger...just like my Kimbers.

    1911s do have sweet triggers. I know that there are many that don't like the Glock trigger, but I love it. I shoot really well with Glocks. I do prefer to have the NY1 trigger with a 3.5# connector. It is a very smooth pull with a crisp reset. That is how all my Glocks are set up.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!
