If I'm involved in a self defence situation where I have to pull and use my weapon, Im going to consider myself lucky to be alive because my very existence was threatend.
I don't spend alot of time worrying about how a lawyer may or may not use my choise of weapon, ammo, or what I choose to call my weapon.
Anything can possibly be used against you in court if you end up there. If a savvy lawyer found out that you belong to and post on a forum called "Combat Carry" I'll bet he would use that against you.
Having said that I would not pre cock a DA/SA pistol in a self defence situation. I feel for me this would slow down my reaction time and increase the chance of my thumb slipping in a very stressfull situation and causing the weapon to discharge at the wrong time. If I want my first shot to be single action I will carry a single action pistol and carry cocked and locked.
