Re: Ideal hunting rifle trigger pull??

I understood what you meant, Kirby! I would have to agree with most of the guys here. 3 lbs crisp is pretty good for a hunting rig. I prefer 2 lbs myself. A light, crisp trigger pull can make the difference when you only have a couple of seconds to shoot as when a buck or bull stops in the only opening between trees that you have to shoot. At 3 pounds, you can press the trigger as soon as you have your sight picture and not have to worry about holding steady until the heavy trigger breaks. Creep is as bad or worse than a heavy trigger. I have killed 40 or so head of big game with all manner of triggers from horrible to wonderful, and I'll take a light crisp pull any day.

    Kirby, I got it now. Thanks for reiterating using different words.

    And I'm not looking for any contradiction. I did think I saw one. I made a mistake. Maybe you don't make mistakes.

    Bart B,

    Last time I attempted to walk on water I got wet as always, Just seems like you were pushing a point but if not, all is well on my end.

    Good Shooting!!

    [/ QUOTE ]I, too used to get wet trying to walk on water. Then someone suggested I wait until it was frozen first. Works for me.
