You would just be shooting and shooting.

It would be a downward spiral that would have you, practically bloodless, having given too much bone marrow, selling a kidney on Ebay & finally, selling yourself on street corners to the first bad-suited, shuffling, Larry Craig who came by in an effort to purchase JUST ONE MORE precious box of Federal Gold Medal Match ammo for just one more perfect target.

Just one more and you will be able to stop, but then you won't be able too....

And frankly I could not do that to another man I have grown to admire....

JD your not too far off the mark here.

The cost of one of thes rifle set ups is just the tip on the iceberg when it comes to time and money. After paying for instruction to get trained to shoot like this then begins never ending practicing and then more practice. You deffinetly have to reload for this endevor. You have to buy things like chronographs to develop your loads, target bullets and quality brass, spendy competition dies and bullet seaters, software to keep track of your load development and target patterns, and all the rest of the associated gear that goes with this endevor.

I could say it's like a terrible addiction but in reality it truely is a rock hard commitment you must have to do this kind of shooting.

Yep. The creep is bad and it the break is rough and stiff. It's a $250-300rifle I know....but it still does 1" at 100 yds with factory ammo and if it gets beat up in the woods I'm not upset.

What you have there is a single stage, aluminum and forged steel trigger. I am not sure of the best way to tune it without going too far to be honest.

It's a very simple trigger. If you just want to replace it, Rifle Basix make awesome triggers that are easily tunable and drop right in.

I am sure stalkingbear can tell you how to take some of the creep out of it. Mossberg's triggers aren't something I am real familiar with tuning I am afraid...

I might have to look into something. I can make due with what I have but if I could change one thing it would definately be the trigger. If only it broke like my Smith in single action....
