I'm with you there. My carry/home defense guns are a 442 Airweight and a Model 3953, both double action with no safety. Pick up either, point and squeeze if necessary. My fun and range guns have various decocking and safety levers, with a few single action revolvers thrown in for good measure.
All is fair in fun and play, but I like consistency for stressful situations.
