I have a G17 at home with the NY1 trigger. I'm tossing around the idea of getting a Sig 229 with the DAK trigger to replace it, though.
Believe it or not, trigger pull weight has little to do with accuracy. The toughest ones folks had to master in head-to-head competition was the Browning single-action and the HK P7. Easiest was the Glock because of the trigger reset and the Sig (which, by the way, also has a similar trigger reset, but don't tell Gaston.) And I agree about the 5946, but it just wasn't the smoothness of the trigger, it was the squareness and clarity of the sights.
It is interesting that the fastest and most accurate shooters on the face of the earth always use plain, square black sights. No dots, no fiber optics, no painted front sight blades ... just plain, square and black.

I just can't seem to get my groupings as tight as i'd like at 25m. I thought for sure it must be me but I've always been a pretty good shot. I'll fire at your typical range target (paper is about 8 1/2" x 11") and I'm struggling to even land all 5 rounds on the paper. I'll usually hit about 3 or 4 but they're all over the place.
My last trip to the range, I went with my father-in-law and he brought his Glock Model 22 Gen 4 .40 cal that he just got. Using his pistol with a much lighter trigger pull I was able to put all 5 rounds into the target at 25 metres in a grouping about the size of the palm of my hand.
The shorter trigger pull of his gun is nice because you can get your sight picture and breathing down and a gentle squeeze fires off a round almost immediately... The PX4 trigger is like waiting for the Yoddly guy on the Price Is Right to scale the mountain before it fires!!!
How should I work on my trigger pull? Is it best to squeeze slowly and try my best to maintain sight picture even though that tires out your finger quicker? Should I work on being able to squeeze the trigger fast but smooth?
Pro tip. Leave your Beretta in the gun locker and carry an S&W M&P 40. You may get your a-hole reamed and disciplined but at least you'd be carrying a better firearm.
