Trigger mod bad idea for SD?

hey, I've been looking into getting a 3.5 trigger connector for my G19, as it will be my carry gun, it's still a range gun. But i've heard a lot of crap how I could get in trouble in court if I ever did use my weapon in self defense with a modded trigger?

Seems kinda dumb to me, regardless if i killed my attacker, I meant to do it, what does the trigger pull weight matter?

I'm afraid it ain't crap, bro, and it's less about "dumb" sometimes than it's about "unscrupulous" on the part of the occasional politically-motivated prosecutor and the more than occasional greed-motivated plaintiff's lawyer. Since there's no such thing as a "justifiable accident," it's advantageous to them to attempt to paint your deliberate, justifiable shot in self-defense as an unjustifiable accident for which you are culpable.

A trigger that's lighter than what the factory recommends for self-defense or duty -- such as the 3.5 pound connector in a Glock, unless it's accompanied by an NY-1 module -- helps them to sell that theory to a jury.

There's a long thread on it here, http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/show....php?t=1259716
which covers about every aspect of the issue, from both sides of the argument, including my take on it.

Good luck,
Mas
