I'm too heavy handed, half of mine are numb from
regular beatings on 'em. I don't even want to be
around a trigger less than 3#'s.

Before he died I had all my revolvers worked over til
they're not much over that too. I like a consistant wt
on all my guns IF it's possible.

My carry snubby smith is about 4#.

The effort to draw the double action trigger was so much for her that it caused her entire hand to tighten resulting in her hand position pulling back and up. The result was a consistent 1' shift in POI from where she had intended. At any further distance her shots would be going over people's heads. Also, it didn't help that the revolver's recoil felt like catching a hardball bare-handed.

I handed her several different polymer semi-autos and even a 1911. She shot incredibly well. Both the trigger and better recoil of semi-auto caused me to loose my carry pistol that day...

Very good and valid points... Hood thing you was observant like that with the head shots... always a good day to loose your carry gun like that... means you get to go shopping again lol

Years ago when I shots Rems 6 br with a 6oz Trigger is when I realized that I must have a little numbness in my finger too lol

As odd as this sounds, I donít really have a certain poundage I set my triggers too. Sometimes a 1-1/2 lb trigger might feel like a 2 or 2-1/2 lb trigger. Not sure why or how it is possible? So I adjust them to where they are safe for how I use them and feel good to me.

Once again we agree on a few things, Gary.

To me a trigger that breaks cleanly and consistently with a slight "safety factor" built in works for me. By a safety factor I mean considering how is the trigger used - hunting or bench - and in what weather conditions.

For example I might be able to function just fine in sunny and warm South Texas with a trigger set at some point that feels good to me. However, if I use that same rifle in Wyoming under cold weather conditions, I might not like how it works with gloves and/or cold fingers. In a situation such as that, I'll adjust the trigger to be safe and fully functional for my needs for the worst conditions and learn to live with it in other more better weather conditions.

With children, having a "safety factor" built in is even more critical in my feeble mind. So, I guess in that same feeble mind that there is no magical level for anyone without considering the child and how the rife might be used, including all possible shooting and hunting conditions.
