handguns.hammer or hammerless
I was just wondering if it mattered if you guys think you should have a hammer or not on a pistol

Doesn't matter to me unless it is an external hammer and snags on clothing.

I like the look of a hammer. I have a J frame that I use as a pocket gun. But that has the cover completely covered. I only have two striker fired gun2. I must have about 11 or 12 hammer guns. I have both autos and revolvers. I like the comfort of simply being able to look at it to see if it is cocked or not. But it is really mostly just that I like the look of a hammer.

Never really bothered me. Had a glock 17 awsome gun and now im looking into the sig p938 and a colt defender.

The striker fire pistol trigger normally is not as smooth or as light as a handgun with a hammer.

Hammer...definitely has to have an exposed hammer.

Not going to find many handguns with hammers smoother than a kahr or little Taurus tcp. I have both type . Can't find much wrose that a DA/Sa pistol with a stacking 12 to 18lb da pull. Buy the handgun that makes the most sense for your needs.

Am comfortable using both, but I definitely prefer the looks of an exposed hammer.

Same here. Hammers just give a sexy look to pistols.

It's hammer time, dodododo-dodo, can't touch this. :D

Anywho, i prefer hammers for the feel and simple asthetics.
