I can try...Personally, since you can shoot most any DA in SA mode, I don't know why anyone would opt for the SA only. Maybe someone can enlighten me.
True, true and true!I can try...
First, because in hunting the major factor is accurate shooting, the single action works just fine; there simply isn't a need for DA in hunting.
Second, the SA revolver is safer if you are in a scenario where you are possibly running or moving around with the revolver in hand. It's near impossible for an accidental discharge with a SA. This is especially true on horseback or in a 4 wheeler.
Lastly, their designs are slightly simpler and more rugged.
Cowboy my old mate you omitted to point out one very important factor......the best reason to use a Blackhawk is that they are are just so darn cool!!!True, true and true!
Also, as i pointed out, less moving parts and less machining means cheaper costs, which can be a factor for alot of us.
