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.

"When I think of shooting, in the method that you describe, a bolt action seems so much more appropriate."

I'd have to agree with IronChef, although if you don't have the extra $ laying around to buy a bolt gun, as long as having no return spring is safe for you and those around you, go for it.

P.S. I've tried using the search function as well, but it's still disabled.... So, what particular pens do you use the springs from?
