They are the same thing. From what I understand is the correct term is 'double/single' or 'DA/SA', due to the sequence of firing. The first shot is a double action because the hammer is cocked by the trigger pull, then released. The following sequential shots are single action because the only action is that of releasing the hammer.

Much obliged, Mad Scientist. :thumbsup:

Gotta wonder why Beretta would say it like that, which goes against the sequence.
It's probably more of whoever takes care of Beretta's advertising, than Beretta.

Yep, it's not because you advertise guns that you're a gun expert

D/A S/A is also descriptive of being able to cock hammer with one in chamber and having that S/A trigger pull verses the D/A long and heavy. However some find it better for D/A-S/A carry with a dropped hammer. Verses the S/A Cocked/Locked or revolver S/A where one has to draw and cock hammer with a revolver D/A draw squeeze trigger the D/A. However I find it counter productive D/A on a revolver trigger Pull is 9-14 pounds I`d rather draw/cock revolver D/A-S/A is best for that.
