    My Glock 19, or 23, and my M&P 40c live in a kydex holster; a Fobus Evolution belt unit. The M&P 9c is in a very nice DeSantis Mini Scabbard leather holster. Both of these holsters take two hands to remove the gun when not on my person so that is very good when suddenly awakening. Also very safe.

    That is true. Hammer fired DAO's, such as the Ruger LCP and the Kel-Tec P-11, are not only true DAO's but also have second strike capability.

    Why not have both? Walther P99 AS is a DA/SA striker fired with a decocker. Excellent quality and ergonomics. Love mine.

    I guess that would depend. My preference for a night table pistol is an SA (only) 1911, cocked and locked. In the heat of the night, with a DA/SA pistol, your first shot is a harder trigger pull (and likely a flyer) with the remaining shots a consistent lighter trigger pull.

    For CCW, beginners, sleepy shooters or less than expert marksman, DAO IMO is a good trade off. The trigger pull is somewhat harder than an SA but all shots are the same. Many DAO pistols don't have a manual safety and don't need really one.


    Unless you are considering a revolver, I'd be looking at a DAO pistol or a variant such as Glock's Safe Action trigger.

    Don't think it matters other than personal preference.

    Many striker pistols have a long trigger pull like the first pull of a sa/da action.

    DA/SA with a reasonable DA. I have a CZ 75 SP-01 Tactical with 19+1 but instead of the stock DA at like 13lbs it's around 8lbs with some Cajun Gun Works parts.

    You'll tend to find more of this with hammer fired DAO's than with DAO's that are striker fired. For example, the Kahr line of DAO striker fired pistols have trigger pull lengths of 3/8's of an inch. The Glock comes in at 1/2 inch.
