If someone walks up to U in the Wal-Mart (or other parking lot) and either demands your keys or wallet or both, how are U gonna pull out your gun AND yank the slide back and then use the gun?!?!Jake's just a slide rack away, and would leave him with a long SA trigger. Just personal preference.
Ship why did you change? I'm new to the CCW world and am carrying the Walther with a round chambered and decocked currently but am toying with the idea of carrying it cocked and not decocked which would utilize the longer AS trigger stroke as the safety factor.I used to carry my compact precocked, but have since kept it decocked w/ a round in the chamber for the past 10 months or so...
Hey, I agree w/ ya - if I am in a store or bank, and no one is in serious danger... the gun stays put.As far as the scenarios go, you're right. There are thousands where it's better to have your handgun "ready to go." As far as someone holding me up for cash or keys though; they can have it. I'm not shooting anyone for $50 or $5000 for that matter. That's LEO work as far as I'm concerned.
Now if lives are at stake...
Well, I've gone back to the 1st shot DA kinda for the same reason U decock the sig. True, I say to keep your handaway from the trigger unless ya wanna fire. But, in a hectic, "bad guy has the drop on ya" scenario, one may not always think clearly. I figured the heavier 1st shot might keep me from doing something accidentally.Ship why did you change?

For My sig, I carry with one in the chamber and decocked since the SA mode has much less trigger takeup before engaging and firing. With the Walther and AS trigger though, the longer SA trigger travel would meet somewhere between the two guns and I would think would be perfectly safe but want to tap into the vast experience you that all have before I do something that I may regret.
The difference is nominal in regards to firing the first shot really but I do like to hear the reasoning behind one's decisions
Yes, U must have in your mind what you would do in various scenarios U can think of. Think of possible situation where U may be around an armed criminal. Think about what U might do in each scenario. Your mental one will never match a real one exactly - but it gives ya something to fall back on to start w/.....Everyone needs to have a mental plan for “ When the bad things happen in life”. No one can tell you when or how hard to fight or even how to react …………my message is just this “compliance” is no longer an even bet that you will be left unharmed.
