Massad Ayoob advises you to use a stock gun for defense .
I also follow Massad Ayoob and his legal advice. According to Mas, an attorney will get you on the stand and ask why you created a "Hair Trigger" on your gun. No matter what you say, he will then say this was a modification that gunfighters in the old West used to do so they could kill more quickly and efficiently. That must be what you wanted, to KILL others. And you couldn't WAIT to get into a gunfight and use your hair trigger to KILL someone...ANY one!
Best is stock. Some say it's okay to increase the pull, thereby making the gun even more safe from accidental discharge and making you look like you were trying to make it as safe as possible. But you should talk to your attorney that would handle your defense and find out what his preference is.
