All my guns are bought to carry and if I'm not comfortable with the Trigger, shame on me for buying it in the first place. But that's just me!!
first of all let me clarify my stance and opinions.
one, any legal modifications to your firearm and the choice in ammo should never be used as a factor in a justified shooting. never.
second, i personally don't advocate doing mods to a pistol a person might carry. don't like the trigger or whatever, then find one more suitable to your needs and tastes. but in reference to my second stance, refer to my first.
another point is this, that i think it's entirely possible for an overzealous rabid anti-gun liberal proscutor to use your gun modifications against you in a court of law, in a justified SD shooting, in a liberal gun hating state.
but so far, it has not happened yet. this subject was discussed on several other threads, and even searching by many, there were not any credible stories to support that gun modifications were ever used in justified SD shooting.
a justified SD shooting is just that. a justified shooting. nothing more or less. until such time someone can cite proof or evidence to the contrary, it's nothing more than an internet myth.
