I guess what I'm asking, why is safety use on SAO pistols mandatory? It could just as easily happen on the other trigger types.
What you are overlooking is that I don't there are any DA/SA or DAO pistols that have a trigger pull anywhere near 5.5 pounds in double action mode. They are typically closer to 12 pounds.
