Little confused on this poll. :?: This is the revolver section and you're asking about a hammer which ALL revolvers whether SA or DA have? Or are you meaning a hammer with or without a spur? In that case I choose both. Spur for SA and no spur for DA. :D When I'm 21 and get my CCW permit, I plan on cutting the spur off my Security Six hammer.

I have had two Smith and Wesson revolvers that did not have hammers. A model 640 and a model 442. I sold them both after working with them and understanding the concept of how they are intended to work.

I bought a model 38 which has the concealed hammer and I find it fits me better. Its an ugly revolver but I like the option of being able to cock that hammer if I choose. But it will fire in a coat pocket and I don't have to worry about the hammer snagging on the coat fabric.

Well, there are spurred hammers and there are "spurless" or "shrouded" hammers.

I think I prefer the spurred hammer types for the looks of them, but for practical purposes, the shrouded hammers do make it easier to draw from under clothing, as it's one less thing to get snagged on something.
That's it in a nut shell and I agree 100%. The old Security-Six and Speed-Six had spurless models also. :-B-:

I have a 22 and need the hammer. In DA, it does not work all the time. In SA, works every time. The hammer come back futher in SA and give more energy and make the gun go BOOM every time.

I like to have a hammer with a spur. I always carry in a holster or in a way that the spur doesn't get in the way.

That being said, I will probably get a shrouded hammer Smith and Wesson just cause I want one.

Having had a hammer on all my revolvers for years, I must say that there is a plus to having a hammer. Thinking about sending my pistol in to have a hammer installed.

It is the semi section, but to answer the question, I prefer a hammer with a spur whether SA or DA.
I don't know of anyone that only shoots DAO when they are at the range unless it is for competetive practice reasons.
I've got one DAO and won't buy another, although it is a nice shooting piece and has a great trigger.

I always shoot my carry Revolver DAO, since it has a Bobbed Hammer, and if I need to use it for SD, then that is the way I would be shooting it. Doesn't make sense to practice with a gun in a way that you are not likely to use it in SD.

There is a great free educational, informational document from Wikipedia that explains firearm triggers. There is a paragraph on striker vs. hammer. Perhaps there may be some useful information for some. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trigger_(firearms)

I'm a hammer man! Walk tall and carry a hammer... Trigger or trigger~less....
