Or just practice shooting it with out setting it.
Once you get a feel for it, you'll be able to use it "on the fly" if/when needed.
When I hunted with my TC Renegade, and with a Lyman GPR, I practiced with both without setting the trigger, even just dry firing with a wooden "flint", to get used to the pull without the set trigger being engaged. If you know what to expect, it helps a lot.
Funny story sort of related to this....
One of the guys (now passed on) who used to hunt in the group I hunted with was funny about his flintlock and the set triggers. He'd aim carefully, then squeeeeeeeze the set trigger. Then aim carefully, and yank/flinch like crazy on the main trigger and miss by a mile most of the time.
One time on a deer, when he was squeezing that set trigger, he mistakenly got the main trigger and to everyone's surprise (probably his most of all), he killed the deer clean.
