    What Does Average Joe Need In A Trigger?

    In order of importance, a self defense gun should facilitate:

    1- Not shooting ourselves
    2- Not shooting people we don’t want to shoot
    3- Shooting what we want to shoot

    #2 & #3 are precisely why I started this thread. did you actually read my initial question?

    seems like everyone here is more interested in hurling insults rather than being helpful.

    recognize that no gun is perfect and even the best gun may need to be tweaked for the needs of particular users. trigger preferences are highly individual. my preference is for less pre-travel. that doesn't make me stupid, evil or a noob. it makes me someone who is looking to make my gun work best for me.

    so, how about instead of trying to belittle people and make yourself feel like a big man, how about actually answering the question I asked, and if you can't, then move on to another thread and spread your superiority complex there.

    I get personal trigger preferences. I would even admit that I have paid a nice chunk of money to reduce pre-travel on four HKs. But when one says that long pre-travel trigger affects safety negatively comparing to a short pre-travel trigger, one shouldn't be upset about getting a bunch of replies he wasn't hoping for.
    “When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"
    "What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"
    "I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.
    Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.”

    Like others have said, this alludes more towards a shooting fundamentals issues than a mechanical fault through HK. Personally, I find that the VP9's stock factory trigger is pretty great. Not saying that the VP9 is perfect, but it's got a great out of the box trigger.
    The reset could be better but the take up to the wall feels good and the break is very crisp. Not sure how you find the pre-travel long and hard. Lightly pulling on the trigger immediately takes me to the wall. If you've fired various semi-autos (especially hammer fired & revolvers), there are others with a much heavier and longer take up than the VP9.

    Amen to that, especially on a striker fired pistol.

    Welcome to the site. HKs have never been known for a great trigger but some people think the VP9 has a good trigger. The HK match trigger in a USP is nice compared to the normal trigger.

    HK does not seem to have a lot of third party products like some of the other brands.

    Whatever brand you settle on then practice till you are proficient.

    I have to ask. What is an Amsdorf thread? PM, if you prefer.
