    HK LEM trigger. (Law Enforcement Modification) Racking the slide will partially cock the hammer so the trigger pull itself is much lighter, however if hammer is dropped trigger can be pulled again to fully cock the hammer and fire a round if for whatever reason the round did not go off. Because of this its much more a DAO trigger than a glock since racking the slide is not necessary to cock and drop the hammer or firing pin. (in the case of a striker fired gun).

With semi auto pistols like Glock, XD, Kahr and similar pistols, with a loaded chamber the trigger pull is completing the cocking and releasing the hammer or striker. If the gun does not fire pulling the trigger will not cock the pistol for another try. You must pull the slide to eject the chambered round, load another and pull the trigger. There are some exceptions in semi autos that give you a second strike, but do you really want to waste time making another hit on a misfired cartridge? I am sure I missed something important with my explanation, that is the gist of my understanding. I like my Kahr, which I think of as a semi auto revolver, a great pistol, with no extra levers or switches.

    This is also true. While having second strike capability is nice, 99% of the time I would want to tap/rack/bang and try for the next round rather than hope the last one will go off on the second try. I have the HK LEM trigger and love it, but for other reasons than second strike capability.
