Are they more intelligent than you?
Are they more proficient with their
striker fired guns than you with yours?
How familiar are you with the 1911
single actions as an alterenative?
Perhaps your striker fired advisers are
like people in miserable marriages-----
they would like more to join in their grief.
All of them work and are enjoyable
IMHO to shoot a DA/SA one should put a majority of the practice on DA pull and that can be tedious.
Why do you have guns? Are they a fashion statement or tools you have for specific purposes?
Gun games inherently favor certain features in guns. If you participate in such games, by all means consider some guns that maximize the potential to excel in those games.
TDA guns were developed for defensive purposes. If defensive use is among the purposes for which you have guns, TDA may be your best solution.
Seriously though you could adequately defend yourself with a cap and ball revolver. A “modern” hammer fired handgun is just as effective as it always has been.
Sigh something something software something more important then hardware.
Also and I hate to break this to you …… .40 caliber……..just bruising people these days and destroying guns left and right. Been found to be 100% useless. Ahh well we persevere.
This, however, I mostly agree with. I have always made sure at least the first shot out of every mag is DA unless I was doing some kind of drill or practical shooting reload. If you are going to own a TDA gun or DA revolver don’t fall into a trap of only shooting single action.
I can’t think of a more reliable and effective self defense handgun than one of SIG Sauers P-220 series guns.
If you like it, shoot it well and can carry it safely... then keep on keepin’ on .
Certainly is a tiresome but untrue point of view.
I've been told Jeff Cooper felt they were a solution to a non existent problem. Any way, TDAs have features I like, however, it is easier to shoot more accurately with most strikers.
Meh,why compromise? I like my TDA striker-fired pistol and it shoots very well.
Walther P99 or variant? This is something I wish had more legs to it.
Walther P99 (before they were marked AS because there were no other versions at the time), Smith & Wesson SW99 and Magnum Research MR9 and I have shot Canik's knock-off.
