. Do most shoot the 25 yard strings in DA,
Yes, at least for the rapid fire strings. The first shot, though, would be SA for most shooters and then DA for the next four in the string. The Timed Fire stage (two strings of five shots. Each string fired in 20 seconds) is doable SA. While it is possible to shoot Rapid in SA, it becomes a very busy business to do this in the rapid fire stage where you have ten seconds to fire five shots. SA - though there are shooters who do it and well - SA means a lot more movement of the gun to thumb the hammer back and then reacquire the target. The theory is that the thumbing is done while the gun is in recoil and you are all set as the sights come back down. That's the theory.....
