Single triggers do have their place but for me a double trigger is the only way to go. It's just a more versatile set up for a do it all double barrel. A lot of double triggers look like they're really close together but they are staggered slightly so the rear trigger isn't actually right behind the front one. My dad has big fingers too and he shoots double triggers. You'll just have to try one and see what you think.If I were strictly busting clay, hunting flushed birds, or running the same choke in both barrels I'd run a single trigger and never look back. Flushing birds are almost always flying away from you so you set up the gun to fire the open choke first, the tighter choke second, and you don't really mess with the barrel selector. For shooting clay you have time to select your first barrel before you even step into the box. When hunting birds like dove, ducks, or crow some times they are flying towards you and some times they're flying away from you. For this reason I much prefer a double trigger because it is much quicker to chose which barrel you want to fire first. This is why I think a DT is a better set up for a hunting gun. With a single trigger you would be having to constantly mess with the barrel selector. To me that's like being in a drag race, the light turns green, but your car is in fourth gear.......oh crap, shift back to first, now go!I've had buddys that thought double triggers would be hard to master but after a box of shells they've all had it down and could pick their barrels much easier than with my single trigger over under. I ended up selling the single trigger gun after one dove season.
My guns are mine, they aren't for sale, and I only give guns to people that I really like. So I guess the government is **** out of luck.
