Timmy I have to ask, are these guns that you carry for self defense? If so, I will only offer my opinion, shared by several highly respected firearms trainers. I do not modify the triggers on my carry guns. i especially will not make the pull lighter. i feel this way because I wouldn't want some lawyer to argue that I shot his poor client, who was just turning his life around from a life of crime to a respectable citizen with a gun that was modified to make it easier to shoot someone with.
just my opinion but, I'm not alone in it. And it's something to think about.
TN Mike, didnt you have a encounter that the lighter trigger may not have been a good idea? Or did you have the 3.5lb trigger on it at the time? I remember when you had that close call. If its just for shooting matches, then a lighter trigger does seem like a good idea.
Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it ......
I have tried the 3.5 connector and the 8lb NY trigger. I liked it at first but I have come back to the standard stock Glock connector and trigger. That's just me but I am comfortable with my decision. Just short re-setting the trigger after each shot makes a nice crisp stock trigger.

Leave it stock and learn to shoot it as such. Competition can be good training - I would not recommend one configuration for competition and another for carry. Keep the feel the same.
The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all. Get a gun you will always carry, and add more capability as you grow.
I prefer the factory Glock 3.5# connector and the standard coil trigger spring.
