I do love a good single-action, and would not feel under-armed carrying one, but for EDC my preference is a double-action or auto. Doesn't mean I don't shoot the heck out of my SAs or prefer them for hunting.
If you haven't got time to do it right when the hell will you find time to do it over?

Nothing wrong with fixed sights if you are willing to make 'changes' if necessary. And once set, they are 'set'. So looks good, shoots good ... what else is there? BTW, no scope or rubber grips will ever grace my SAs.... Just me though .
I make exceptions when it comes to black powder revolvers, but for a single action centerfire revolver I can't accept fixed sights.

Yes I'm aware they can be fired DA but they're not set up to be comfortably cocked SA

Several generations of target shooters managed it before the autos took over.
Maybe I should have said they weren't set up to be comfortably cocked one handed. It can be done but not with the ease of a SA.
