    BTW, there is a second benefit to my 20 year relationship with a gunsmith.

    My written and documented requests for a 5-pound trigger are long standing. Terry could also testify as an expert witness.

    I shoot clean, standard commercial ammunition.

    My pistols have large, colored sights for easy sight pictures.

    It's too bad, but we have to play the game for after the shooting, as well.

    Both of my primary carry guns (Series I Kimbers) have ~3.5lb triggers, and they havent been touched by a 'smith.

    I'm gonna have a trigger job done on my mil-spec springer, but I dont need it light, just not so creepy. I'll probably specify 4.25 or so.

    My opinion. I feel a deciive DA trigger pull is a more intentional act. And under stress less likely to accidently fire. As long as its a decent smooth pull its o.k. Most PD's have gone to DAO or DA first shot guns. Even NYPD Glocks have heavier trigger pull than standard.
