It's what you are used too and can shoot well. I can count on one hand the number of times I ever shot a gun double action. All my shooting is with Single Actions, or shooting single action. To "forget" to cock a revolver is ... well... impossible in the heat of the moment.... It's ingrained in you. If I need more than 4 shots of .44Spec or .45 Colt.... Then I am in bigger do-do than even a semi-auto with 17 (well 7 if you now live in NY or are they now down to 1 now?) can handle. The only reason I carry an CA Bulldog in .44Spec is 'lightness'.... Not because it is a DA. Of course in the great outdoors it is back to open carry of a SA revolver in either .44Spec or .45 Colt.

Fanning, in my experience, is not a fast way for accurate shooting... At five feet? Maybe.... and lots of practice ... and lots of rebuilt guns .... But I personally wouldn't do it to any of mine.
A clinger. When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. Single Action .45 Colt (Sometimes improperly referred to by its alias as the .45 'Long' Colt or .45LC). Don't leave home without it. Ok.... the .44Spec is growing on me ... but the .45 Colt is still king.
