    A lousy fast trigger pull is still awesome if the grip doesn’t suck.

    Slow is still slow no matter how you go slow. You can beat the **** out of the trigger as long as the rest of the gun doesn’t move from proper grip.

    People just put way more emphasis on the trigger than it deserves. The grip rules all then sights then trigger.

    For most people NO. I've got 44 years of doing this for competition and on the job. Master trigger control FIRST. Speed comes in time and more accurately.

    I can place shots with a 1911 upside down because of trigger control, not speed.

    I let a couple young bucks come over and practice on the steel and they grip their guns so tight they actually visibly shake . To their credit they shoot steel at what I view as close range very fast and accurately.
    Ask them to shoot one hand at 25yrds and they struggle .
    I believe different disciplines require different grips .

    I agree that placement is the key and overlooked characteristic.

    Take a look at target results.
    How frequently are shots left or low left (for right hand shooter) even with tight group. That is having the trigger finger not placed correctly for the straight back trigger press.
    Say you have a 26 oz hand gun with a 5.5 trigger. That would be ideal for a good 26.

    It is very easy to disturb or move the muzzle due to poor trigger control.
