    Default LEM trigger reset

    I've noticed that the LEM has a reset that occurs far before the trigger is completely released. Should the LEM trigger be completely released between shots when shooting quickly? Discuss.

    Context: I ask because a friend of mine and I were shooting timed drills last week, and I noticed, after watching some video that we took, that I was releasing the trigger completely. I am thinking that this (a) slows me down but (b) prevents me from pulling the trigger before the reset occurs. I don't know whether the complete release is good, bad, or neither.

    Try both ways on the clock. Let that decide for you.

    By intentional design you would only release the trigger "all the way" if you were done firing or to holster the weapon is is my understanding. Not in between a string of shots.

    I was taught to ride the reset for quick firing.

    It’ll take some practice But you should always go to reset, it’s not only extremely fast it’s also a lot more accurate, and it will not damage your gun.

    @redpillregret , that is a good point.

    I am a little concerned that riding the reset might make me pull the trigger before the reset, but I'll have to see what happens when I practice.

    Nothing wrong with using the reset as designed but there is always a chance of short-stroking the trigger if one is shooting under stress; that is why practice is important with any weapon system. (On the other extreme is the SIG DAK trigger which is designed with an intermediate reset that is NOT meant to be used.)

    With that in mind, what is your intended purpose for the pistol? That will inform your level of practice and comfort with the LEM trigger more than anything here.

    Exactly. I'm kind of the opinion that I'd rather shoot slower than short stroke the trigger. See below for why.

    I carry the LEM (P30SK), so the primary purpose is SD. I have about 1,500 to 1,750 rounds through it so far (I'd have to check my logs).

    I'll have a look at the video tonight.
