...and much more!
I'd want careful, controlled, well placed fire in a HD event. I think a binary trigger would not be helpful. I don't trust drum mags, I'd rather roll the dice on being able to execute a coherent mag change... I mean, how much bad company are you expecting?
I would recommend against it. IF you actually every had to use it, depending on the stance of the DA, they could potentially use the fact that you had a binary trigger (kinda of a grey space in Oregon on if it is considered a machine gun or not. Many online stores won't ship them here) it could be construed as "overkill" sans used against you. Like if you had used a handgun with "I kill trespassers", they could use it as an attack claiming you were itching to shoot someone. For something home-defense, I'd use the "what do the police use" as a benchmark for legal protection.
As others said above, I personally don’t trust drums for reliability when ur life depends on it.
As for the binary, it depends on a lot of factors. For example (and I’m sure I missed many factors):
1) have u trained with it to become proficient and are u intimately aware with how fast you can go though ammo?
2) In your training do u use 2 shot bursts? If so then it may be attractive. They excel at 2 round bursts. 2 shots sound like a single shot on mine.
3) in training have you ever had a malfunction due to the trigger outrunning the bolt (most common Malfunction with them) or other malfunction? If so, I would not rely on it for my life.
4) Are you disciplined enough in a stressful situation to avoid spraying and praying and can therefore minimize potential collateral damage to those you don’t intend to hit? (refer to 2 shot burst comment above).
Imo reliability of whatever gun u are using and training to use it proficiently while your mind and body are confident and calm In a very stressful and Adrenalin-filled situation is one of the most important factors (assuming all the usual stuff like you can access the gun and put into action quickly etc). Fight or flight (or freeze) response can have very significant negative effects on us. Imo binary could potentially make that worse unless it’s proven to be essentially 100% reliable in ur gun, and u are proficient with it, and u don’t use it such as spray and pray (which is often how we respond due to our default flight and fight response).
