Personally I find DA, either autoloader, or revolver, a whole lot safer than SA autoloaders. I have seen numerous LEOs have an accidental discharge during three gun matches at my club. Although the discharge could be called a 'Double tap' by some, I have seen the dirt behind the target kick up and I doubt ther shooter was pleased at the need to do an extra reload.
Different strokes for different folks. There are enough choices to please just about everybody. I personally like DA revolvers. I have a S&W 3913 which is DA on the first shot. This is not my first choice, but I do use it as a backup.
It may take a little more practice, but then this is not for Bullseye competition. At bad breath distances DA can easily find all shots in the black.
Practice with what you prefer.
