If you are using it for hunting, double rifles are still a pretty big thing as they allow you an immediate follow up shot as quick as you can pull the trigger. This is especially important if you are hunting something that can also kill you.

As for the triggers a single trigger is generlly regarded as faster, and in the case of a failed first shot you just pull it again rather than having to shift to another trigger. You just need to make sure that the single trigger is mechanically switched rather than inertia switched, as with the latter if you have a dud round (or empty first chamber) the trigger will not switch to the second barrel automatically.
