Hello. I just bought my first handgun in over 20 years. I was in the Army and have plenty of experience with military rifles, but have only shot a .22 and .45. I recently bought a Taurus .38 Special (Ultralite). I've run into a couple of problems. 1. The trigger is a monster. I'm assuming that it's for a purpose (shouldn't be so easy being a 2" barrel). But it's not consistent through the pull like I think it should be. 2. Within the first 30 rounds, I experienced what I thought (and still think, to some degree) were FTFs. While pulling the trigger slowly, it will get to the point where you get one last 'click' before it drops the hammer, and it will stop. I can let off the trigger, and pull again, and it will fire. Today, I decided to get the gun to repeat this while dry firing, and it did. After further testing, I found out that if I squeezed much harder it would go ahead and fire. So, it didn't actually get stuck, but got in a spot where it required me to almost have to use both hands to get it to drop the hammer. Any ideas on this? Also, about the trigger (problem #1), I called a gunsmith in my area, and he wanted $150 to change the springs. I'm not really into sinking $150 into a $330 gun, only days after I bought it. If I wanted to do that, I'd have bought a more expensive gun. Is changing the springs a difficult process? I have no experience breaking down anything other than an M-16 and M249 SAW. Is that a high price to change the springs? Thanks in advance. Glad I found this community.
