    Uhhhhh NO it does not mean that.

    Double Action means that for one pull of the trigger, two things happen. The hammer is drawn backwards and then released. A Single Action only does one thing when the trigger is pulled, the hammer is released.




    so the question is after you fire the first shot, what do you need to do to fire the next round?

    No, that is not the question, because in both cases of a semi-auto and a DA revolver, a round is fired every time the trigger is pulled.

    Don't confuse mechanical operation with political classification.

    There are bolt action rifles that are classified as restricted handguns. The reason for this has ZERO to do with the mechanical features of the firearm. The reason a bolt rifle can be classed as a restricted handgun is because it started out life as a handgun like an XP100. Our idiot laws take the attitude that "once a handgun, always a handgun" regardless of barrel or stock substitutions to make the thing a rifle.

    On the topic of confusing, I am surprised no one mentioned that anomaly known as the "Webley–Fosbery Automatic Revolver" in this discussion

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Webley...matic_Revolver

    Single action, self-cocking, self loading, semi-auto revolver.

    I want a triple-action / single-action (TA/SA) handgun. Pulling trigger on first shot moves the slide back and loads the round and releases the slide, cocks the hammer, and drops the hammer. On followup shots, single-action.

    All of this will become important when Crye six12 goes in for classification.

    There were a couple Mateba auto revolvers as well

    Some outfit in Pakistan was supposedly developing a Fosbery replica, but I don't think anything has come of it. Ian from Forgotten Weapons opined that it may have just been vapourware.
