This shows how subjective are the various elements of a firearm that make some attracted and others not. I like the 290RS trigger very much. Not too heavy for a DAO.Hummm, I will say nether one !! I have shoot the p290 and the design feels good but that 9lb trigger pull kills an other wise nice handgun and it is heavy . .
I like it also the trigger on the 290. My bigger guns are sig DA/sa and the 290 helps with trigger discipline on the first DA shot.I have nothing but good experience with my 290RS. I just really like that pistol. However, I am very much comfortable with double action and some may find the trigger too heavy. My 290RS is a natural shoot where you point it gun. I wouldn't carry it in my pocket as it is just too heavy for my pockets. I carry appendix IWB and it works great that way. Nothing wrong with the 442 though.
