Well, now that I'm old (and possibly in some sort of second childhood), it needs to have a cylinder that holds cartridges and revolves. But in a pistol I like the decocker. Still wish I hadn't sold my Smith M459.

DA/SA seems to be getting more popular, or maybe it's always been and I've just missed it. I still wish I had one for pocket carry. Decocker is a must for DA/SA for sure!

Rear only. But both would be better.

"decocker only".

Manual safety is a deal breaker for me.

I don't like single action trigger pulls. I want to be able to feel the trigger move (dao or da/sa revolver).

Interesting thought I've always wondered why people like double action only trigger pull. So for you it's about a feeling of more control over the trigger and when it goes bang, having that longer pull?

Accurately click adjustable positive locking adjustable sights.


I have a strong dislike for sights in which the windage adjustment is made by loosening and tightening opposing screws. Or worse yet, simply drifting a dovetailed sight.

Much agreed Bob! Not a huge fan of the style myself, though, oddly enough, all my handguns have this. Lol

Still, great observation and point.
