    I just posted a video on YouTube dealing with the different triggers I have and which ones i like and do not like. It should be no surprise that I prefer guns with a DA option.

    YouTube - Semi-auto & Revolver Trigger Options

    What are your opinions on the different types of triggers? Which do you prefer?

    I have no idea what "HK style" means, but I prefer a DA/SA w/decocker... as long as there's no manual safety.

    I ran heavy equipment and you get on a machine and adapt to it.
    When I pick up a gun,I adapt to the trigger configuration.
    1911 with no travel and a light pull or a glock with the long pull.
    Or a light pull on a revolver.As long as the trigger is smooth

    I just adapt to the gun.No biggie

    Hard to beat a 1911 trigger that's set up properly.

    DA/SA Decocker w/ no Safety. Not familiar with the "HK" style, but love the "Sig" style. :D Second favorite is a clean single action.

    No matter if it's a semi-automatic or a revolver, my fav is single action. I can deal very well with double action triggers, though. I believe I'd prefer DAO over DA/SA, too.

    I carry a 1911 almost all of the time. When I don't, it's a DAO.

    The kind that makes the gun go bang.

    DAO/safe action with no safety for a defense gun, single action (1911) for a range/target gun.

    I prefer a crisp single action in my pistols a la 1911 but I can tolerate a nice DA/SA like my Beretta M9 has. DAO's in pistols are an abomination created by lawyers... :( In revolvers they are what they are but most of my revolvers still can be shot single action for precision targeting.

    Can't stand dao. My favorite is sa/da but I can do decently with a sao

    My favorite? I love my single action 6 shooters. I would do well with them. But the issue is concealing them. So the sa/da is next on my list.

    I guess i'll jump on the band wagon and say I like the da/sa with decocker "New HK style with the button" it's also hard to not like a 1911 or a SA revolver because the triggers are so easy to be proficient at

    For a carry gun I prefer a DAO gun with no safeties, in fact I don't like, nor do I use the safety on any weapon if it is mechanically possible not to, the best safety is to remove the bullets when not in use or remove your finger from the trigger when loaded.

    I prefer a quality 1911 trigger.

    (and a Geiselle single stage on my AR)
