ANd why of why oh why can I shoot a snubbie with a shortened grip and a standard revolver double action trigger pull better than a sweet 1911 SA trigger? It remains a mystery.
And when I do use a SA trigger on a revolver it is better than all three.
I think something in my head says that a 1911 isn't a SA, I think. What do I mean? I default to pulling the trigger. PULLing the trigger. Like I mean business. If I was defending myself I'd ~pull~ the trigger. I get better shots when I check myself and sorta ~feather~ the trigger on the trigger squeeze. It's slower, more deliberate, and totally not what I'd be able to pull off right now in a stressful situation.
Now I PULL that trigger with a DAO revolver. But that's sorta how you do it, is my understanding. Get your sight picture and smoothly squeeze straight back.
And with a SA revolver trigger squeeze I approach THAT more slowly than with a 1911 from the get go. I know that's just a hair away from going off, so I am being more careful.
This all STILL doesn't explain what happens when I shift gears and MAKE myself shoot the 1911 like a SA revolver.
