How about a revolver? They make some pretty light weight ones in .357 and you can do a lot to the triggers.

I'm tired of the crappy trigger on my Kel Tec and Ruger LCP. Its a mile long and I shake like a dog crapping a razor blade while aiming and pulling the trigger. I do however want a gun with the same lightweight and slim characteristics because I refuse to dress to carry. I like how my crappy trigger carry guns fit in my fifth (watch pocket). I want something with at least 10 rounds. I'd like something in 10mm or 40 if possible. No 1911's as I've yet to hold one that weighs less than a brick. I have $4700 in the gun fund but I'm not going to go for broke. Need suggestions. Always hated the looks and bulkiness of a glock but I know they function great but know squat on their triggers. Need your advice badly before I purchase another paperweight.

If you're having trouble staying on 2'x4' at seven yards, a target trigger isn't going to do much for you. You need some training.

That's also standing, not supported and add the crappy triggers. I can shoot pretty descent with single action though. The added shakes add up down range.

Don't judge your ability on a gun such as a keltec. Crappy trigger, crappy (non existent, really) sights, and hard to hold.

I don't get to the range everyday but I try to at least once or twice a week.

As I think about it...this isn't a bad idea...the LCR-X has an exposed hammer...as do a number of more pricey snub nose revolvers....get a sticky holster and stick it in your back pocket...They all have a single action trigger pull that you should find acceptable...Though I will note that .357 Mag version of the LCR is a handful....
For some reason, our OP has an aversion to holsters....
No one is saying to run out and spend a grand on a gun and holster, but you have to make some compromises to get what you want.
You want a defense weapon with a light trigger, that packs 10 rounds and is less than a pound?! Plus it needs to be small enough to fit into a pocket watch pocket so you don't need to 'dress' for it? Um...no.
Plenty of minimalist solutions but you may need to be more flexible in your thinking. Below is something similar to what I have. Slides on a good gun belt in about 2 seconds, incredibly comfortable, and can be used upright or canted forward depending on how you like it. Mine doesn't print much with a untucked shirt. Below is the CZ-75 compact. The 2075 RAMI is even smaller.
My full sized M&P with a ten round CA magazine ( it was a CA gun I got on a good deal) weighs 31.75 ounces loaded. Add about 4 ounces if I am carrying the 17 rounders. Usually I carry the tens and pack a 17 spare. It really isn't that noticeable, but I'm 5ft 10inches and about 250lbs.
The Taurus 738 TCP. Never mind the naysayers here, do your own research on the Internet and watch a dozen or so videos on YouTube. The trigger on these American designed and American made guns is light and smooth, the gun is accurate and reliable as sunrise with everything from practice rounds to Buffalo Bore, and the ergonomics just plain work. The almost full length metal slide rail inside the polymer frame enhances reliability, and the double nested recoil springs help control - it's still snappy but nothing like the pain of a P3AT. That means your follow-up shots are faster and more accurate, and your practice sessions can last a lot longer.
Here's just one of the many reviews worth reading (it includes a video): http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2013/05/jeremy-s/gun-review-taurus-738-tcp/
There are lots and lots more on YouTube. Enjoy.
Ruger LC9S Pro is your answer. Oops...Not .40, and not 10 rounds either, but easily pocket carry, and has a GREAT trigger. If you can live with 8 rounds of 9mm, it's a good choice. About $350 delivered too.
I'd suggest getting a .22 and practicing. A lot.
Some proper training can correct much of your problem. Learning trigger control will help you shoot with a less than perfect trigger and then shooting with a good trigger may make you better but you have problems that need to be addressed with training rather than a light trigger and lots of practice won't help if you're practicing bad habits. Learn to shoot first and then decide what you need.

But Zee shot the hell outta his Buddy's KelTec. Had to be the gun :jester:
Yes. The trigger on mine is very crisp from the factory, but if you like, about $80-100 will get you an Apex trigger kit installed that will make it damn near perfect. Now you can get the Shield with or without a 1911-style safety too.

Rocketman, I'm reasonably confident that if you make it to a SE Shoot, there will be at least a few people qualified and willing to give you a little coaching and help you improve your shooting.
Get a Dillon Square Deal in each caliber and call it a day.
