If a person has any problems with the different trigger pulls transitioning from DA to SA, they should get a Single action only or Double action only.
We spent the afternoon at the range with a Springfield 1911, a Sig P220, a Ruger GP100 and a Ruger SP101. All of them were great shooting guns. The Sig is on my want list now. I had no trouble with the SA/DA action. I was able to double tap 2" groups at 25'. The first round being DA and the second SA. My PT92 has the same action so I am sort of used to it. I was able to shoot a tighter grouping with the 1911, but felt more comfortable with the decocked P220 in a quick draw simulation.
