    I prefer condition 2 with the safety off.
    That way I have the option of just pulling the trigger through the double action or if I have time I can thumb the hammer back.
    While pulling the trigger through the double action may reduce accuracy in the first shot it's no different than a revolver in that respect.

    Mine is an SA as well. It started out as a Mil-Spec Springfield.

    Nice. I have a friend with one and he let me shoot it. Don't what happened to him or why he hasn't picked up his gun yet. ;)

    This is my fav, and most accurate pistol I have ever had even up to and including my model 29 Smith.

    I couldn't believe it! I went to the range with it shooting from about 12 yards out, it made a damn near one hole ragged group right where I was aiming! Trigger pull is three pounds! I'm afraid to shoot it again as I won't be able to hit the target probably!

    To hit a moving person is easy for me. And yes the mag usually does go through a human. They still can't move! I love my .44 as I use it for hunting.
