What "ignition system" do you most often use?

EliEli Senior MemberPosts: 3,074 Senior Member
Pretty much what the title says.

I know that for most of us, our "favorite" would be a single action semi-auto, but we end up, out of personal choice or work restrictions, carrying something else.

So, what do you end up carrying most often?

    I was trained to shoot a DA/SA revolver SA; so that is what I do.

    SA pistol and revolver, except for the Glock I carry occasionally.

    I've always liked the DA/SA choice. 99% of the time I'm shooting them SA. Just to get more intimate with my revolvers and because I don't carry "Lock & Cocked", I'm currently working on bringing that precentage down.

    I'm mostly a DA/SA guy. Most of my pistols (Sig, HK, & Ruger) are DA/SA.

    My PPS is striker fired, and I don't own any SA pistols except for my 22/45.

    I use a factory installed ignition system now ... but if I had the option I'd go with the one of the ProComp Motorsports systems ... they run atleast double the voltage of factory sytems.

    I only carry the 1911 right now, but my next purchase (planned, anyway) will be a DA/SA semi-auto. I just like having one around with higher capacity and lighter initial weight.

    I'm not too fussy about triggers, so I seem to be favoring striker fired, lately. At the moment, I'm partial to my 'new' Kahr K-40.

    For me it's

    1) SA (1911) or S&W 29 Revolver about 40% / 40% with
    2) Striker (Glock) about 20% of the time maybe.

    My work piece is a Glock and my normal CCW is a Glock. So, by default, striker-fired.
