I have an American Derringer M-1 in .40 S&W, I was a LE and carried it for years in an ankle holster as a last chance gun. The first time I fired it was loaded with 165 gr Golden Sabres and I thought I broke my hand, couldnt believe it could recoil that much. I broke open the action and saw both primers had been fired. Sure enough, somehow the selector had stuck in the middle and struck both primers. I lubed the selector and made sure it ran smooth and touched off just 1 round, followed by the other. That I can handle and yes the trigger is heavy, but if you need it that bad, you wont feel the weight. Can keep both rounds in the kill zone at 7 yards, beats throwing rocks anyday.
