There are several variations on the defensive handgun, from single-action to double-action, short trigger to long trigger, and hammer to modern striker-fired guns. If you want a gun that is easy to operate, comfortable for your hand, and has a trigger that is neither too light nor too heavy, a modern striker-fired pistol is exactly what you need. Rob Pincus discusses the advantages of owning and operating a modern striker-fired pistol. He explains why it prevails over some of the oldest and most famous styles of handguns, such as the revolver and the single-action gun.
