Single Action ans double action to me?
Every time I think I understand it, I don’t. I have read and read and still not getting it.
I am going to use basic term here because that’s all I know.
I thought single action meant the gun did one thing, and I did two. Like a revolver that I had to cock and then pull the trigger, but double action meant that with a single motion of pulling the trigger the gun could both fire the shot and cock the hammer.
However, I often hear people say SAO on a gun that all I am doing is pulling the trigger.
I do not know why this concept is so hard for me. It does not seem to confuse anyone else, but, I am special that way.
