Kyo, . . . my wife has a similar weapon, . . . a P85, . . . and I believe both of them were originally designed for the DA first shot with the rest being SA. Not owning one like yours, . . . I am not certain, . . . but the one I shot a few years back, . . . if I remember correctly, . . . did not have a safety, . . . it had a de-cocker like my wife's P85.

That is why the hammer is really not as accessible as say a 1911, . . .

And that is why if I carried your weapon, . . . it would definitely be one in the pipe and practice that long trigger pull for the first shot.

An armed altercation is a very high emotional moment, . . . adrenalin is popping, . . . your pulse and blood pressure are peaking, . . . not the time to stop and have to do a "do over" because your thumb could not find the hammer, . . . etc.

If you truly want the SA first shot, . . . in a .45 ACP platform, . . . you need to have a 1911.

May God bless,
Dwight
