Double action only, correct? Double action only guns require the shooter to pull the trigger its entire length in order to pull the hammer back and release it with each shot. Unlike the single action/double action firearm, a DAO gun has no exposed hammer or mechanism that allows the hammer to be set in its cocked position and released like the trigger on a rifle. For that reason, I don't see where a different trigger gets around the DAO design.
DAO guns are considered safer for follow up shots since the hammer is not cocked after each shot. My understanding is the design if often preferred by some LEO's who cannot make follow up mistakes in stressful situations.
Some more serious shooters claim that with practice, a shooter can make a DAO firearm perform like a single action/double action, meaning the trigger can be pulled back to hold the hammer in its near release position. I'll never be that good with mine.
