One of the big news stories to come out of the recent NRA annual meeting was the partnership between Nighthawk Custom and Korth Arms to market… wait for it… double-action (DA) revolvers. Now, DA revolvers don’t get much space in today’s defensive press. In fact, if you listen to some folks, you are just bound to die unless you carry the latest prophylactic pistol with the 33 1/3-round magazine capacity.
All of that is well and good. New guns are fun. But the simple fact is that the double-action revolver has been saving lives for well over 100 years and continues to do so to this very day. Here are a few reasons that the DA revolver might just be the defense gun that you have been looking for.
The DA revolver is simple to learn to operate and most people have no trouble remembering how to run it. There aren’t a whole bunch of switches, safeties, and gizmos, that need tweaking before you deal with the bad guy. DA revolvers are easy to operate.
