Absolutely---for me anyway. I have a friend who also did not like his trigger set at 1 pound. He bumped it to 2 pounds and is satisfied.
You should definitely be comfortable with your trigger and have it set exactly how YOU like it.
I've had my share of offhand shots inside of 175 yards and if my triggers were any heavier, I could have missed. I like to touch it off when I see those crosshairs exactly where I want them. So for me, 1 pound is about perfect. Probably 3/4 pound would be even better.
It's not just about the pull weight. It's about being a clean, crisp, no creep pull. If you want 3 pounds, just have the smith work the factory trigger to that.
