Best or worse thing depending on how you look at it is to not draw your weapon unless you have determined that the threat requires neutralizing immediately.
I concur...as long as any modifications fall within the factory specs, there should be no concerns regarding the specific mods.

My Ruger revolvers have 10# Wolff Springs in them...simply because it makes them more comfortable and more consistent to shoot...because they all feel the 'same' to me!

Keep in mind, US laws regulate behavior, not the individual nor their specific weapon of choice (as long as it's legal to begin with) so the law can only look at behavior (mindset, decision-making, etc.)

It's one's decision-making that will be looked at and assessed for competency, validity, correctness, etc.

I have a basic rule...my gun does not and will not come out of it's holster unless needed for use...if it ain't needed, it ain't out!

Knowing your state and local laws regulating 'Use of Force' is a good place to start in educating one's self to know what the parameters (the cans and can'ts) are in a self-defense 'use-of-reasonable-force' situation is in the first place.

Stay safe...

Back in olden times before the scramble to semiautomatic pistols a number of police departments mandated DAO triggers on revolvers to avoid claims that an officer inadvertently shot a miscreant after cocking a revolver creating the dreaded "hair trigger effect." As far as I know, no one was successfully prosecuted or sued for "inadvertently" shooting someone with a DAO revolver.
