Some guns come from the factory with triggers that are hard to pull. When shooting these guns, the shooter pulls the gun off target due to the amount of strength required to pull the trigger.

A trigger job is done only by someone that knows what they are doing. It is a procedure that reduces the amount of strength required to make the gun fire. Usually by polishing the parts in the trigger assembly or changing a spring or two.

After the trigger job, it doesn't take as much weight on the trigger to fire the gun. I like about 4-5 lbs. My Nova came with a 9 lb trigger. Some guns, especially cheaper jobs, come from the factory with 9-12 lbs trigger pull. They could use the services of a qualified-repeat-qualified-gunsmith. Too light a pull is dangerous. Too heavy is conducive to bad shooting.
