He must have updated the description after. Basically SAO/DAO.

I appreciate you assuming I am not ignorant, but in this case, I am. I believe the description was there, but I guess I just don't fully understand what that means and need it ELI5. Is there a good video that shows the difference that you'd recommend?

Ah, sorry. DAO is where the hammer is cocked as part of the trigger pull. There is no way to manually cock the hammer like you could with your thumb on something like a 1911. Hence double action(cock and then releae/fire). Speaking of the 1911, SAO is where you have to manually cock the hammer before firing. However, the Type C appears to always stay cocked. So the trigger pull isn't going to cock the hammer, but it never gets decocked, so it won't matter.

Basically, the DAO will most likely have a longer trigger pull and take extra force to cock the hammer as part of the firing. The "SAO" they offer is almost similar to a Glock striker fire where it stays in a cocked position.

I won't comment on state laws as IANAL.

And if someone else wants to go into more detail, feel free to correct me. The terms can get confusing since there are so many systems out there.

thank you, so if i was looking for "least effort" "shortest time (all else equal)" to take a shot and subsequent shots, than the Type C would be the quickest shot because the pull is shorter? I mean it probably is trivial difference, but if someone breaks into my home and i pull the trigger, i'd like the shortest distance necessary of the pull to protect myself

Have the .45 version and love it !! Amazing shooter, very mild recoil..just not very concealable, esp IWB. Makes a great HD pistol.

These are cheap because the calibers and actions are weird. Not sure why'd you ever want an SAO auto pistol unless you're target shooting, and even then why not just cock the hammer first? Makes it nearly useless as a carry weapon.

I have the compact 9mm F model SA/DA and love it. The decocker and other safety options are nice. Not heavy but a little wide for me to carry concealed realistically. I paid $569 on sale for mine so this is a good deal. Pay a little more and get the F model.

If you don't mind my asking, in which position do you carry? And which holster do you use? A friend has carried (appendix) for a number of years.

Just a thought on Double action v Single action;
"Depends upon your purpose"... in my opinion.
If you're a target shooter, then single action will probably give you the most 'satisfaction'.
On the other hand, if you are using for protection, a longer, more purposeful pull is highly preferable; ya don't want that puppy to go off inadvertently.
I have 'race guns'. My M1911 is down around 2 pounds and my M686 is butter smooth in double action... and down-right scary in single action.
Just imagine if you were holding on someone and the gun went off accidentally.
I think about such things.

I understand the attraction of the Double action first, and Single action follow-up shots. A bit inconsistent.... but safe.

I don't CC the Storm 45, if thats what you were asking. Otherwise, I carry IWB at four or five o clock.

Not a fan of appendix carry just because it is very uncomfortable. In the winter, I do OWB.
