    So much so, that I often double and triple check that the striker is not cocked (a visible
    red protrusion from the rear of the slide).

    I seldom practice fire DA and then SA. I am convinced that in a pinch
    I will get the first DA shot off perhaps a tad low, but quickly, and then be
    good to go on subsequent SA mode. OR, I will have racked the slide the
    short distance necessary as I withdrew the gun from the holster.

    I can't speak for other makes, models, brands, and certainly not for
    the particular gun mentioned by the OP. I'm just "sayin" that for myself
    and with my particular weapon, I think this is a non-issue.

    Must add, mine is used much more as my bedside gun than a carry gun; my carry gun is SAO carried
    cocked and locked. I'd almost certainly have a second or so to rack the slide half an inch and
    get it cocked; but if not DA will do.
    Just a guess... And not hatin' on ya... But is it a Taurus 24/7 G2 you're talking about?

    Maybe for gun games - but for close range self defense? INSIGNIFICANT.

    Nope. It is a well made quality item.

    If you're shooting that CZ in da/sa that well, I've got to give you a lot of credit. I have a CZ75P01 and the da is really tuff. Now I mostly carry my Sig Sauer P220 Carry in DA/SA. I find that if you hold the pistol Very firmly in da, you can shoot very accurately with practice. I've got over 5,000 rounds through my P220 and now there is very little difference in the accuracy of the da shot vs sa shot. Just takes practice......

    I think DA/SA is a more reasonable alternative to SA pistols than DAO anytime. DA/SA ought to be more popular than DAO.

    In a self defense fight it will happen close and fast. With a SA you need to think about a safety, and constantly worry about a cocked gun. With a DA you can just pull it out and shoot.

    I love my CZ-82. It is DA/SA and with enough practice it gets better. You may dry fire in DA until you see less movement in the sights when you finish pulling the trigger. As far as in self defense, it won't matter. In DA at the range you will most likely be at you will hit the first time and the second and third times. I find that SA has faster time on the trigger when I decide to pull it but that requires dropping the safety. It is really all in how you train and how safe you feel.

    My friend varied the same gun and he carried cocked and locked. I am more of a fan of the longer pull that DA requires in the holster if the safety gets clicked off. The holster I use could rub the safety.

    Again it all depends on your training and preference.

    DA to SA is not a big deal. Just like riding a bike or skateboard, a muscle memory.
    People will have their preferences with triggers and safeties.
    I don't like thumb safeties, but wouldn't whine if it was handed to me for free.

    Is it a Walther P99AS? That is my guess. I have been wanting one for awhile now. But the price has skyrocketed for them in recent years. When I bought a Glock 22 a few years back, it came down to being between that and the P99. They were the same price and the P99 felt great but I was not aware of aftermarket items for it. I was also new to guns and went with the Glock because the local cops and FBI carried it.
