    straight vs curved triggers

    Hello everyone.
    I am in the process of ordering pieces for a new hunting rifle. (please note: Hunting not Hunter) I have a specific question on which trigger design.
    I am set on the Calvin Elite - Timney trigger. I am deciding on the straight vs curved trigger. I have never shot the straight trigger - but it looks pretty cool. Any opinions on the straight vs the curved versions for a hunting rifle?

    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    I'm thinkin'....what functional difference would there be in either trigger? I'm also thinkin' you need to get whichever trigger you want.

    My thinking.... the straight trigger on a hunting gun would give a little more room in the trigger guard if you were wearing a light glove.

    For me, it would depend on what the likely hunting tempís will be. I would want the curved trigger for cold weather when my trigger finger might be a little less sensitive. The curved trigger would provide more surface contact area than a straight trigger and therefore more feeling to a cold finger. For warm weather hunting such as prairie dog shooting, I think the straight trigger would be fine.
