And then Wednesday, it was back to work with the Sig project...

"Is it because you build habit through repetition for a certain breaking point and changing that breaking point throws you off? Or, will a skilled individual always be able to shoot faster while staying accurate with a striker fire vs a DAO similarity to the way a skilled shooter will always able to score faster follow up shots with a 9mm vs a .40?"And the response is where I blew a lot of the morning's keystrokes:
"That's kinda two separate questions:
1) You're going to notice a performance deficit going back and forth between triggers, no matter whether going from a shorter, lighter one to a longer, heavier one or vice versa. This is why I get so hair-pullingly frustrated when people talk about "carry rotations". If I didn't have to shoot a bunch of different guns for work, I'd be putting 90% of all my trigger time into my carry gun, and that's the only one I'd be really serious about building performance with.
2) A skilled shooter is always going to turn in faster blind splits with a shorter, lighter trigger. If really smokin' Bill Drills are your metric for what makes a good carry gun, then there's your answer. However there are some really good discussions in the archives at pistol-forum.com where smart folks like Wayne Dobbs and Darryl Bolke talk about why maybe raw, blind splits aren't that important in a gun that's used as a people-management tool. Can I turn in faster splits with my Glock 19 than my P250? Sure. I can probably turn in even faster splits with the Wilson 9 or my pimped-out Grayguns 320. But I can absolutely drive that 250 as fast or faster than I can process the visual information of what's going on on the far side of my front sight."
