Ahhh be brave! I used to have my old 45 deer creek northwest rifle set up for hunting with a 1/2lb trigger! Now that baby was smooth shooting in the field.

Exactly and when your all pumped up with a buck or whatever in your sights, a 1-1.5 LB difference will never be noticed and it won't go off on accident..once you have personally seen it happen as i have, it will never be worth the risk..leave the 2lb trigger pulls for the bench shooters... Ray

Lol. Yeah, it's not as easy as it looks. Takes LOTS of practice. Hell, some days I shoot like your brother-in-law. It can be frustrating.

It would be better to shoot 8" groups every day.

No disappointment that way.

It depends on the action of the rifle and the shooter. If the rifle can only fire when the hammer is c0cked (e.g. T/C Omega) and you shoot with a thin glove or bare-fingered, why should 2 lbs be too light if that's what the shooter prefers? There is no reason to c0ck the thing until the shot presents itself.
