Assuming you have a DA/SA pistol like a P228, should I practice cocking the hammer while drawing or should I just practice taking the first shot in DA?
Wow, you don't often see a recommendation to carry a pistol in Condition Zero - cocked and unlocked. It can be done, but if someone has to ask about it, they probably aren't a proficient enough shooter to do it safely.Tareeka Babooga said:I would carry it cocked, or expect, and prepare for, the first shot to go wild. IOW, never hesisitate for the second shot. The cocking process during a draw can bring problems, but can be mastered.
I have to agree, but you should practice either drawing and at the same time cocking or drawing and DA firing. See which works for you and go with it. I wouldn't recommend walking around with a cocked revolver.... :shock:leeindy said:use the weapon the way it was designed.
