Do you already own a revolver? If so, they can give lots of DA practice. Taking one of mine out this weekend for that exact reason.

Oh man. You're going to have to get used to it, that's about all I can tell you to be honest.

I'll tell you what else though. Once you do get used to it, there's not a whole lot of other platforms you'll like better.

DA / SA has been my favorite. I went from SAO, to striker, to DA / SA, and I've basically stuck with it. Granted, I've carried Glocks as well. My home base is the DA / SA system.

Here are some great ways to get used to that DA pull:
  • Snap Caps! (just be sure to load S.C.s in with an empty mag)
  • Decocker, it's your friend. After every shot at the range while learning the trigger break, decocker and do it over and over again.
  • Practive drills. Triple taps. From the hip, "punching out", etc. Decock. Do it again.

After years of SA pistol use only, I decided to renew my acquaintance with DA revolvers.
Rather than dry fire a revolver with dubious feedback results, I got one of these.
It has a rifled barrel for lead pellets and is very accurate with realistic action and feedback from holes in an actual target.
It works great and provides a lot of trigger time right at home.
I'm on my second one, having plumb wore out the first one.
