    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.

    I voted for double action only, I've owned a GP 100 for many years, and it runs well. Although the first gun I bought over 40 years ago was a Ruger Single Six 22 and loved the heck out of it. My only complaint was it was a pain was loading and unloading it.

    I like the ability to use both double action or single action.

    I own a S&W model 66-4



    My S&W allows both.

    I like both the double action and the single action equally well, but prefer the single action for field use.

    Trooper III a 1975 model.



    My S&W 29-8 Talo Exclusive 3" 44 magnum.



    The old stand-by, Dan Wesson 715 (357 mag)



    I do like the DW 744 (44 mag) also, it's scary accurate and has a trigger that can't be beat even by the Trooper.

    Tough question indeed

    Double action is my preferred action design just based on reload time. Of my DA collection I have 3X more S&Ws than I do Rugers. My best S&W is my Performance Center Model 627. But when forced to admit a preference I have to own up to the fact that my all time favorite - from my current collection - is my 3" Ruger SP101.
