Armed Response: Don’t Improve Your Trigger

Some of us like to improve the trigger of our handguns. A light match trigger on a concealed carry firearm might turn into a problem rather than an advantage.

This series is produced for DRTV by Ralph Mroz and David Kenik.

Feel free to discuss the tips on the forum and below on this page.

Ralph Mroz and David Kenik are the people behind the Armed Response DVD series. These video programs avoid both the simplistic advice that is too often given for armed self-defense, and on the other end of the spectrum, the over-macho “high-speed” “tactical” advice that is also both unrealistic and too prevalent. Instead the focus is on what is realistically possible for most people to do in these extreme circumstances. Mroz was a police officer for almost 20 years, most recently assigned to his county’s drug task force; Kenik is the firearms instructor for the Lake Arthur, NM police department.

    More appropriate for a lawyer to comment on than a shooting instructor.

    Very valid points. Target triggers have no value in self defense unless that happens to be the only weapon available and you really have no choice but to use it. But for carry that is planned in advance, a target trigger is asking for trouble and it will be trouble, one way or another.

    Why put a beaver tail grip on a gun with no hammer? Is this to appease those who can never have enough safeties or what? I have shot thousands of rounds through my Glock without a hint of an accidental/negligent discharge. What’s up with this?
