    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.

    I love the look of a single action. That being said, all my wheel guns are da. The weird thing is I almost always shoot in sa mode. I guess I prefer the versitility and the swing out cyclinder. I own Smiths, Rugers and Taurus.

    The two wheel guns I have right now are DA. I have had some SA revolvers in the past but I seem to like the DA a little more. This is seen by what I keep and what moves on from my collection into an others.

    I own and shoot both single and double action revolvers , and as said before the swing out cylinder is ceartainly a lot faster to reload , but than again there is just something about that cowboy look and feel of the single action.

    Double action on a revolver is the way to go.

    I voted single action as that is what we have here in the house at the moment...I read somewhere that it is more accurate to fire a single action...I find it comfortable when I was allowed to shoot it at the range one time. No offense meant but I tend to think that a revolver is for practice shooting only. I have yet to train my brain to think that a revolver is also the same as my other guns...for protection.

    I prefer double action. I have about half that are double and the other half single action. The single action are mostlly 22 plinkers though.

    i like double action more than single because when its in single action it takes almost no pressure to fire a round off. another reason for me liking double action more is because if your going to use a revolver as a carry weapon your not going to carry it in single action. also i feel like i am more accurate if i squeeze the trigger in double action rather than doing it in single

    The Western style Single Action, namely the Ruger Blackhawk/Super Blackhawk, is my favorite for heavy loads for use in the field or woods. It is extremely accurate, powerful, and rugged. In addition to being such a fine performer, it is the most handsome of handguns, either blue and case hardened, or plated and engraved. No other handgun has such elegant looks. nor wears grips of ivory, stag, pearl, or exotic hardwoods as well.

    But, for rapidity of fire, and speed and ease of reloading, then the double action revolver shines. It can be dressed up as well as the Single Action, though lacks the beauty of form possessed by the Single Action. There have been attempts to build DA guns as rugged as the SA, but these attempts have resulted in the awful monstrosities seen with rubber grips and scopes mounted.

    Just my opinion.
