Well, for starters, it’s either one or the other. Single action means you have to cock the hammer before you fire the pistol with the trigger.
Double action means you can both cock the hammer and fire the weapon with one pull of the trigger.
After that, it’s mostly preference.
Back in the day, however, double action revolvers weren’t around, yet. So, they didn’t have a choice. The gunslingers of old were swinging single action hand canons.
Nowadays, the preference is about equal. How about you? What do you prefer? Jacobson’s wants to know. Comment below.
