Although I dutifully test and record trigger pulls when I shoot a review gun, I rarely notice trigger pulls when I'm shooting at birds or clays. My dad taught me that shotgun triggers were slapped, not squeezed and ever since I have shot guns with triggers from 2 to 10 pounds without being able to tell the difference. My old Benelli Nova had a particularly stout trigger, the kind where you can (with the gun unloaded, of course) hang the 8-pound gun from your trigger finger and it won't go off. Novas were brand-new at the time and I had one of the first ones. Lots of people wanted to shoot it when I took it to the gun club. They would call for a target, pull the trigger, and, when nothing happened, check to see if the safety was still on. It wouldn't be. They would shake their heads and hand the Nova back to me. I would go right on breaking targets with it. I loved that gun.
