Mas - May I present you a question regarding changing factory springs in this revolver? From the factory, the trigger pull on this pistol was horrible. You had to squeeze it VERY hard to get it to fire. It was to the point that the recoil of a mere non-+P 38SP was painful. I suppose the practically un-useable thing should have gone back to Taurus. The fix for this was a Wolff spring kit for the hammer and trigger. It fixed the pull to what is normal for a 38SP, and it is well within the safe zone for a revolver. The question I have relates to (please, God, no) having to fire this is self-defense. How bad will it look if the prosecution decides to bring this up at trial? Will a jury tend to ignore this, or would it tend to hurt. I am in the far Southeast and I don't leave it much, so any jury would almost certainly be made up of people from MI/TN/AL/GA/FL. Also not that in the three counties I spend 99% of my time in, the DAs tend to be be in favor of self defense. I know that nothing is certain, and that everything is a roll of the dice, but given the above, how much of a problem is the spring replacement? One other thing, there are many people how will testify that I have said, "castle doctrine or not, and regardless of legal justification, if you can avoid a shooting, avoid it. And eat your pride run like Hell if you need to. A dirtbag is still a human being."
