    I carry a DA Sig P228.

    I also carry a Kel Tec P3AT a good bit which is DAO.

    I voted DA though cause I do carry the Sig more.

    I carry a Taurus PT 140 (internal hammer, I *think* DAO) with one in the pipe at all times.

    If it's in the holster, the safety's off. If it's tucked IWB with the hipgrip, the safety's on.

    Glock "Safe Action"

    But I personally prefer a single-action trigger pull.

    The info on the link says that it is DA/SA. Does it have a decock mechanism of some sort?

    It's DA/SA...but it's all internal hammer. No Decock except by pulling the trigger. Taurus has a weird trigger mechanism on the Millenium Pro's. First trigger pull is heavier than the rest I've noticed.

    So you have a heavier DA first pull with a shorter/lighter pull from reset? If you let the trigger fully extend does it go back to the heavier pull?

    I really needed to vote twice.

    I usually carry my PA-63 9MM Makarov which is double action. But, I also frequently carry a S&W model 60 revolver in .357.

    So, I wasn't sure how to vote, but I did.

    Didn't vote. Because it depends on which gun I'm carrying. :)

    If the 1911, then "Cocked & Locked".

    If my E. German Makarov, then it is both DA (first trigger pull) and then SA (all subsequent trigger pulls).

    So...there ya go...

    I voted DAO/safe action as I am most commonly carrying a Glock of some description or a S&W 642. I also carry a TDA a good bit.

    I own a 1911 but don't carry it.

    With the Taurus 24/7 line of pistols, they all have a manual thumb safety. By engaging the manual safety in the safe(up) position (a click is heard and felt), it decocks the striker, returning the trigger mechanism to a long-pull conventional double-action mode. If there is a bad round in the chamber, and it will not fire, when you rack the slide the trigger will remain in short pull. It will not go back to the long pull until either the manual safety is engaged or the slide locks back after the mag is emptied.
