    Hard For Me To Pull The Trigger.........

    I have been a right handed shooter my whole life, and now due to an accident that has involved the muscles and nerves in my right hand, its very hard for me to pull a trigger. I need some suggestions on what would be the best thing I can do to my trigger that will make it easier to pull. My other option would be to learn how to shoot with my left hand. Even if I do that, I'm still going to need a softer easier trigger pull. So, if any of you can give me any suggestions, I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

    Are you asking about a specific firearm? Is it difficult to also get a firm grip or just the trigger press? My first thought would be to shoot lefty, second would be to adopt a firearm better suited to you. Of all the pistols Ive ever owned nothing beats a good 1911 trigger.

    I agree with Para - left hand, as awkward as it feels, I can actually shoot more precise with my left hand (brain thing). If that isn't an option, I would think a non-striker firearm that has a short pull would be easier than a very light pull on a Glock. You can get a Glock light but it's still a long pull. Which is better for you? A light long pull or short pull?

    IF the OP shoots from the trigger reset on his Glock, he won't have a long trigger pull. Simply adding an aftermarket connector might help.

    My grip is not bad, my problem is more in pulling the trigger back. The Glock does have a long pull on it, and that's where I'm having the problem. I have a Kimber 1911 that's had trigger work done to it and I don't have as much trouble with it.

    You have brought up a good point, it's the long pull on the trigger that bothers me. This is my first Glock and when I purchased it I never thought about the long pull that it has.

    I've never shot a pistol from the reset before. Is it hard to get used to? What kind of connector would you recommend?

    Many of us shoot from the reset position. Easy to practice. Dryfire, holding trigger back. Retract slide about 1/2", slowly release trigger until you feel reset. Pull next shot from that trigger position.

    I like the LWD connectors. Also Ghost Ultimate. Add heavier trigger spring for lighter pull.

    If I use the Ghost Ultimate, which heavier spring do I use?

    Ghost sells a kit that includes a heavier trigger spring and a couple of firing pin springs you can test out.
