    Grew up shooting D/A revolvers, I had a nickel 4" mod 19 and a buddy had a nickel 6" python. Shot them as much or more DA than single. I think it is a dying art. Got a Sig -P239 357 DAO pistol and my younger friends hate it because they hardly shot revolvers much less DA only. Good find:supergrin:

    It's true, DA revolver shooting is a dying art, which is sad, because it's very effective.
    Like most good things in life, it takes effort and requires good rhythm.:supergrin:

    What I meant to say was the gun converted from double action / single action?

    Its always nice to have the single action for those really tough targets.

    Yes. It was one of a few thousand NYPD revolvers built DAO.

    I'm pretty much at a point where my DA shooting is just as precise as SA.

    Thats Good!!!

    I know there are alot of people out there that swear by the 1911 and other single action guns but for selfdefense I dont feel they are any where near as safe as a DAO when it comes to holding someone at gun point.

    With a DAO you pretty much can control the trigger pull in a nervous situation to where the gun will not go off unless you want it to.
    With the single action guns all it takes is one little twitch of the finger and the gun goes off if you was ready to shoot or not.

    Sharp looking gun you got and you should enjoy it for many years.

    I like SA in autos, since I have the manual safety (bhp/1911) to provide some backup to trigger discipline.
    With revolvers, I like SA too for those guns intended for outdoor/hunting applications, or for Bullseye. For a carry/combat revolver, DAO is just fine for me, since that's how it will be used. If I want the money shot, I can stage the trigger to approximate a SA let-off and get similar results out to 25yrds or so.

    Last time out, using a Model 15 DA K frame, I shot two groups at 20yrds, one DA, one SA. Not much difference.
