Trigger return necessary?

New here, howdy.

With all this harping on a ballpoint pen trick to lighten trigger pull and still keep trigger return, I tried it.

It works, but is nothing compared to having no trigger return spring at all.

So my question is, considering I rarely shoot as fast as I can, unless I'm being chased by a rabid rabbit, is it safe to leave this spring out and return the trigger to its initial position manually via a small lever glued to the trigger to shove foward with my finger after I fire a shot?

I would think the trigger pull savings might make this interesting for other folks too, if it is safe.

And what's up with the search function, I tried searching for this but its been disabled.

Thank ya'll.

Antlurz is correct.

I tried to replace the trigger return spring on one of my 10/22s with a captured spring / adjustable trigger stop deal I made and ended up having the spring bind when it was compressed. I took the spring out several months ago and have never put it back.

You have to return the trigger manually but everything else works as it should. Since I shoot mostly USBR type targets with the rifle I have to move around between shots anyway, so that isn't a big deal. I'm thinking about adding a little extension to the bottom or side of the trigger to facilitate resetting it. It takes two fingers at the moment.
