    Dao

    It seems that a lot of manufactures are going DAO. I hope they will give you a choice and offer SA/DA also. I went to a gun store in the next town and they had 10 walther P99's. I got really excited hoping to find a 9mm compact in SA/DA. They were all DAO. I guess I'll have to wait for the big gun show to come to town.

    I don't much care for DAO. I shoot a lot of DA but I still like to be able to cock the trigger and fire them off to.

    Amen. I'm a big fan of the SA/DA. I know Cooper said it was a solution to a nonexistent problem, but I tend to disagree. I think it's pure genius. I really like the option of a manual safety as well on an SA/DA. I think it's the only weakness in a Sig. Personal preference, I know. I think it's the safest way for us civvies to carry a weapon.

    I've been finding more and more people buying guns in DAO because the hammer "scares" them. I don't understand that logic at all since I don't own a gun without one myself. I can almost understand the snagging issue for CCW, but again... my carry guns are SA/DA. But it's all about supply and demand.

    As far as manual safeties go... I can take them or leave them. I only have one gun with a manual safety on it and I find it to be a hinderance to use. But as you said, it is personal prefrance.

    I don't understand the hammer fear either. I would think such a fear would work the other way. Having a device(striker or internal hammer) that you can't see or manipulate can be seen as scary. I like the traditional DAO over the striker-fired variety too. I just wish they could make a trigger in an auto that felt more like a revolver. It's hard to describe it but it doesn't feel as smooth.

    I'm with you. I like being able to decock my guns, and most of the striker fired guns don't have that option. It's one of the things I like about P99, you can still decock the gun.

    And here I was, 1st seeing the subject line - and thinking to myself... He wants to edjumicate himself by studying the Dao (Tap). But, alas, I am finding out its double action only when I open the thread
