i was looking at the trigger on my gun and a thought crossed my mind. wouldnt the trigger have to have two contact points with the strut to make it a two stage trigger. and if so then the one on my gun is technically a single stage trigger. can some one prove me right or wrong on this.

No, two contact points are not necessary.
It's all about the feel.

A two stage trigger has two distinct pull weights.
The first is relatively light. Could be just a return spring on the trigger before
it contacts the sear.
The second stage is noticeable heavier, and generally quite short.
When you hit the second stage, you know that the gun is about to discharge.
Useful for target. You "take out the slack"through the first stage, then when the trigger
gets tight, you hold target, and fire.
For rapid fire, defense, etc. not so useful.

My personal preference for just about all cases is a relatively light single stage,
with almost zero take up, and very little over-travel, typically called a "hair" trigger.
( you could call it two stage, with zero weight on the first stage ( before my finger contacts the shoe ) )

I do prefer a two stage on double-action. First stage cock, and second stage fire,
with distinct pull weights, heavy of necessity.
