Do such modifications come up in trial very often?P.S. If you trust Massad Ayoob, whom I don't necessarily agree with on this one, he has made it widely known that he does not recommend trigger jobs on carry pieces. He feels it might give a DA or prosecutor additional ammo, so to speak. He thinks anything other than factory could give the impression to a jury that you were looking for a 'better killing machine'. I don't agree necessarily agree with him, and I don't think it is an issue in Texas, but just figured I would throw it out there as some added info.
I am unaware of it ever coming up in trial. On defensivecarry.com, Massad occasionally posts, and we have asked for examples of cases, but we never got them. He does have case evidence of DA's calling Hollow Point bullets 'specially designed to kill', so who knows what a DA will say.Do such modifications come up in trial very often?
