For a target or competition gun, go for it.

For a self defense gun, there could be adverse legal consequences if you should need to defend yourself with it. All a trial lawyer needs to do is convince a jury of your "peers," that you altered an otherwise safe gun, giving it a "hair trigger." You will be characterized as some kind of "gun nut" who was anxious to kill his poor, helpless client, who was only minding his own business before you gunned him down in cold blood.

A jury of your peers = Folks not bright enough to get out of jury duty.

Bottom line suggestion:
Do not do any work on the trigger until after you completed the pistol course. The money saved could be used to get ammo for practice, and the handgun will "break-in".
After completing the course, you will be more knowledgable about your handgun and can make sound decisions on what you need to change.

There are some here, myself included, that use their carry gun as both. That's how one becomes proficient in using, training and handling their carry gun. I have yet to see that "trigger" defense used or used successfully for that matter, in court litigation, of a justified shoot.

Just saying.....
