If someone prefers DAO, DA/SA, etc I say more power to them. What I've noticed in the firearms community, however, is a tendency to tell people why their choices are crazy compared to our own. It gets ridiculous enough to seem like religious conversion.

Thanks and you beat me to it. A lot of talk and such about light triggers and 'heat of the moment'...but not a lot of 'heat of the moment' and either forgetting to chamber a round or forgetting to thumb the 'safety' off..

I started with strikers for EDC..as did my son's and with training and shooting comes familiarity, and safety..Strikers(Glock) just don't 'go off'..

Zealotry..like caliber discussions, 'gotta start with a '4'..type stuff.
