A longish, smooth trigger pull that must be deliberate. That is all. I like Sig having only a decocker. I like Glock for the long deliberate trigger pull that isn't horrendous. I like double action revolvers.

In a carry gun I like being able to draw, point and shoot.

Glock, long trigger? You and I have extremely differing ideas on what long is.

But this is where to each their own comes into play.

I like my 1911 ambi safety. That is the only safety I like. But I like a long heavy trigger like on a double action revolver. I have several guns with decockers. I chamber a round, decock and then activiate it so that I can simply pull the trigger for the first round. So I guess I am saying that I like a long trigger pull if it is not a 1911. I do not like any other type of safety. I will not carry a gun that is not ready to shoot. To me an auto without a round in the chamber is a poorly designed club.

For single action I prefer a decocker, like on my p94. Other than that, Ive actually grown fond of just good 'ol DAO. But I don't like safeties in general. I think they can cause complacency and a lack of respect for a weapon. JMHO
