Ok, this is not a troll question. I am strongly considering getting a P320 for carry, but this issue concerns me.
The average (obviously there is a lot of variation) trigger weight for a defensive 1911 is 4.5-5.5# (according to Hackathorn it's 5.1#).
The P320 ships with a nominal pull of 5.5#. It has no external safeties, or even a tabbed trigger. (also, many people even use the Apex trigger, which supposedly drops the pull by ~2#). How is this any different than carrying a cocked 1911 with no safety. (I realize that the P320 striker is only 90% tensioned, but I'm focusing here on ND/AD's revolving around the actual trigger mechanism, not the gun being dropped, so it seems that the pull # is really all that matters). Is the increased length of pull alone considered enough? (Most DA/SA guns the really on pull weight as a "safety" have one in the 9-12#r angel)
EDIT: I probably should have added this a a while, but I am referring to serio-80 1911's. Trying to compare apples to apples here (essentially any SAO gun with a some safety and all modern internal safeties (BHP, P226 SAO, USP/P30/HK45 when cocked, etc) and locked could stand in - in fact a 1911 might even be a little unfair to compare, since it also has a grip saftey
