    I wish I could control the former but all I can do is work on the latter.

    No, not the same amount of time, even with a speedloader. Without a speedloader not even close.

    IF we are talking load & unload for daily carry, pretty much the same thing was my point. A revo is no more safe or diff to run if one isn't a total incompetent.

    Modern PPK do, to name one.

    There was a range of years of manufacture, 2000s I think, where this became more common (not very common, but if it happens to you).

    The PPK has a safety decocker. If racking the slide, or if cocking the hammer, when the safety is on (or is put on after doing the racking or cocking) the hammer drops.

    Usually, the hammer dropping on a DA/SA with a safety/decocker is no issue. With the PPK you can see a hammer block rotate into position to physically block the falling hammer. Ok, great, so far.

    Problem was, sometimes, rarely, the hammer block broke. BOOM.
