    CZ82 is the smallest DA/SA I have. My J is a Centennial so it could be considered DAO.

    OOPS, forgot the Beretta 21A.

    No longer have this one, but I carried it a pretty good bit. Especially walking Abby the Wondermutt around the neighborhood.

    Bulgarian 9X18mm Makarov. Over built like a tank. Almost impossible to make it choke or bobble. And waaaaay more accurate than you'd think. But the initial DA pull required Bulgarian female weightlifters.

    The smallest DA/SA guns I have and carry on occasion is my Taurus 85 revolver and my Hungarian FEG PA63 in 9x18. Though neither gets carried often anymore. I usually grab either my Sig P938 or Glock G43 on most days and also will carry either my G19 or a compact 1911 in 45.

    CZ P-01 Omega has been my daily carry for the last two years. Small? Well it’s a compact size comparable to a G19 but with a BigFoot steel core belt it disappears on my 4:00. I’ve been a Glock fanboy for decades but this pistol has changed my daily carry forever. I’m floored how accurate it is and it is the SOFTEST shooting pistol I’ve ever encountered.

    Smallest DA/SA I own is a USP Compact in 9x19. I can make it work with a IWB, like Galco’s King Tuck. However, if I want max capacity and concealment I take the P365 with me, though it is a dreaded striker-fired weapon-mine does have a manual safety, which at first I was like “why?’ I’m used to it now, however.

    Another thing I failed to mention is my CZ P-01 Omega has the ability to be converted and carried as cocked and locked with a safety lever or as I prefer, carried without a safety but with a de-cocker lever in the hammer down position. First shot is heavier pull in DA and all subsequent shots are SA. I can carry IWB appendix without ANY fear of accidental discharge which is VERY comforting.

    When did that gun become DA/SA?

    I can shoot a DA revolver very well because the first shot is the same as the last. But I can't shoot a crunchenticker semi-auto worth a damn unless I cock the hammer first.
