pretty much either IMO. this is simply a personal observation, not based on legal reasons or anything other than common sense.
the trigger on many newer pistols, like the Glock and some others is the only safety the pistol has. by lowering trigger pull weight, IMO, you lower the safety factor.
there are many benchrest and target shooters that have rifles with trigger pull weights that are measured in ounces, not pounds, and some don't even have a safety at all, simply because of the rifles application and use. not the type of rifle or trigger i would recommend for hunting or SD usage.
something a gunsmith did to several of my revolvers years ago when he did a trigger job on them. he showed me that by smoothing the internals, but not changing the trigger pull weight, it seemed like the trigger broke at a much lower pull weight, when in fact it didn't. smoother just felt like it was lower in pull weight simply because it was smoother in function.
as this was done on revolvers, i am not sure if it could be done to some of the striker fired pistols or not and acheive the same results as they are different platforms, with different operating parts.
these are simply my observations, opinions and my thoughts on changing trigger pull weights on guns in general.
EDIT: these are simply guidelines i follow and if asked my opinion that i offer. what others do to their firearms is simply their decision to make and need to be fully aware that they are responsible for it's safe function if or when they make modifications to their gun.
