    I likes my 4" S&W 686P .357 mag just fine. No desire for anything else in a revolver.

    I have no experience with the SA revolvers but I really do enjoy Smith & Wesson DA's. One of these days I'm gonna get my hands on a Ruger Blackhawk.

    Cannot vote since I like them both for different reasons.

    The double action revolver is a work of art in that it has the lockwork of a precision piece of machinery (most brands), well balanced and beautiful to look at.

    The single action revolver is a masterpiece of 19th century mechanical genius. The multiple clicks when preparing to fire is the sound of power getting ready to be unleashed.

    This funny to me. I've never thought about, "What was the first centerfire revolver I ever shot?" My god, it was a Ruger Super Blackhawk .44 mag. in 1974 in Key West FL. I've shot many since. I've always prefered D.A. revolvers. I am not a big fan of the single action revolver. They are good shooters but I prefer the look of a nice double action.
    I own a Colt Python, a S&W M19 and a Ruger GP100.
    I've owned Rossi, Taurus, Charter Arms, North American Arms and I've shot Llama and Heritage revolvers.
    You need to get a Ruger Blackhawk. They are good guns.

    I own and shoot both SA and DA. Smith, Ruger, Colt...all have merits and appeal. Given time for choice, or fer' gun-carryin' and practicing that's not work-related, I'll take a wheelgun anytime!

    I vote DA as a pracical manner.

    I own a .357 SS tracker that I carry as my hiking/canoeing gun. It is primarily my "uh oh it's a water mocassin" gun. I load two shot shells and 5 .357 rounds. In most it's a snake/bobcat/rabid dog situations I believe I'll be quicker drawing and shooting than drawing, cocking, and shooting.

    Double action. I shoot about 1 in 100 in single action, but it's nice to have a choice. Although my next revolver will be a S&W or Ruger DAO. I think for revolver concealed carry that is the only way to go.

    There is just something about the "feel" of a Single action.....it must be that old "wild west" thing.

    Fair

    Not Fair: Bob; Sir you coulda made some way we could put in both
    Double/Single/ something
    Now; we know that most Double's are used for plain shooting
    Now; we know that most Single's are used for the Target shooters
    Now; we know that DAO don't fit anything
    Now; we know that Single's are best for Hunting
    Now; we know that Double's are Best of both worlds
    Now; we know that most of us have B"OTH

    Sir: kindly revisit this poll and un-up-date the question

    It's about Revolvers

    Thanks

    DA and SA both. Prefer Colt type SAA to other single action types.
    I have both DA and SA autos as well.
    I guess I'm easy to get along with.

    I voted double action but either in a Ruger is fine with me. For protection a double action, for hunting and plinking either.

    Hello there Retired in 2001. Welcome aboard. Here's that Jersey joke......"What Exit?" I was born and raised in Long Branch. I had a small music store in Belmar from 1972-1991. I moved to Fl in 2002.
    Boy am I glad I got "outta Dodge". This state is much more friendly for shooters. I wish I'd have left 25 years ago.

    I've only fired DA's, so I can't comment much on SA's. I figure if I want that short, crisp trigger, I'll just cock the hammer. But I find Ruger SA's to be absolutely beautiful. Maybe someday I'll get my mitts on one.

    I like them both, but it depends on what I'm doing. I really love my Rugers and use my .357 Blackhawk with a 6 1/2" barrel for deer hunting, and my 4" Security-Six as a HD gun.
