Good morning GTers. If you are reading this, I like you. Like many people here, I have been seeking the holy grail in carry guns for a long time. As we don't trust pistols for one shot stops, we try to equip and train ourselves to put to practice the adage "If it is worth shooting once, it is worth shooting again" - and "take our time quickly" while doing it. Besides reliability and likelihood of carry when needed, important things to consider for a defensive pistol include trigger and grip morphology that contribute to decent practical accuracy, and part of this IMO is the ability to reset the trigger quickly. Here lies the issue. When I carried Glocks I enjoyed the trigger reset and found it short and comfortable. Other manufacturers fare well to varying degrees with regard to trigger reset. Most SA 1911s do well in this respect, as do the H&K P7M13 and the CZ75 Shadow. One needs to be comfortable when the trigger breaks, but having a long reset means manipulating the trigger at different speeds for different stages of the shot cycle, even at high speed. On my CZ Phantom, I found myself slapping the trigger instead of slowly releasing till reset before squeezing again to shoot quickly. Its reset is longer than a Glock's but shorter than for CZ's Omega trigger (e.g. P07 Duty), and is fine for a carry gun. My ideal carry gun would be a lightweight double stack 1911 with a rail for lasers and stuff and a trigger as described above, but I have yet to find one that is available, so I soldier on with the Phantom while I compete with the awesome Shadow. I might adopt trigger slapping a bit more when shooting combat pistols as opposed to raceguns, to get some more speed out of them. How important is short trigger reset for you folks, and what guns do you recommend with short trigger resets? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
