Default Legal to mod your EDC?

I've heard a little discussion about not changing out the trigger or doing anything that alters the way your every day carry firearm came from the factory. Is it illegal? I have a S&W Sheild 9, that I want to drop a new trigger in. What are the concequences when using one to defend yourself after it's been modified?

Most people don't recommend changing the mechanical (trigger) parts as it can cause issues in court. Again depends on agency if it's legal or not. I would recommend only changing the sights or grips just to be safe. Here's a good video about the issue on more of a national level.

I have a Shield and am Licensed to carry in San Bernardino, my Shield has a modified trigger ( 4lb ), loaded chamber indicator blocked and night sights. My gun passed in section easily. However the guy in front of me was denied by the same instructor for to light of trigger, i'm not sure how light it was or what type of gun. I couldn't get a good look without putting my nose where it didn't belong.

I look at it this way and maybe i'm wrong, but if I get in a spot where I have to DEFEND my life or my families. The last thing i'm worried about is a lawsuit. That's what insurance is for, which I have yet to purchase LOL
