Oh, but I *LIKE* double triggers (on SxS's anyway). Nothing better than a 20Ga SxS with DT's and a straight grip. Except maybe a 28Ga SxS with DT's.drsfmd said:I agree with Marist. I don't *like* double triggers (mostly because the ring finger on my right hand always seems to get beat up by them), but they are pretty quick to adapt to.
Not off topic. The answer is it depends if you move your hand to get to the back trigger or just move your finger. There is some debate which one is correct. The 'move hand' movement preaches double triggers and straight grip, or single trigger and pistol grip. The other movement, "finger only", says it doesn't matter. Both movements agree that if your middle finger is taking a pounding when shooting the front trigger then something is wrong: gun or shooter.Captn66 said:Slightly off topic, but not much . . . .
Does the pistol grip get in the way or hinder you in any way on double triggers? In other words would you stay away from a SxS just because it had a pistol grip as opposed to a straight one?
Pistol grips combined with double triggers are OK; they don't seem to get in the way of switching from one trigger to the other. This seems to be done only with the trigger finger and not sliding the whole hand around on the grip. For me the straight grip feels and points better on a SXS than a full pistol grip does but I don't think it affects the trigger pulling much if any. If a shooter had a SXS with a pistol grip and it did not feel right, the grip could usually be cut off, sanded down, and re-checkered (did this by myself on my first shotgun).Captn66 said:
I went back and re-read what I originally wrote-- that wasn't very clear. i wasn't referring to liking or disliking double triggers, I was referring to the ease of adapting to them.marist89 said:Oh, but I *LIKE* double triggers (on SxS's anyway).
