An opposed thumb separates us from lower primates, the wisdom of when to use it, from the thugs, on the 6 or 10 O'Clock news.
I prefer the 1911 pattern pistol, above all others, because it works, 100%, and because, in my feeble fashion,I understand the how and why, that it works, allowing me to keep it running that way.
'Bobbed hammers', on a wheel gun, allow quicker presentation; since a revolver, as a defensive weapon, is shot double action only, nothing is lost by the modification: used by a serious and practiced shooter, group size,at defensive ranges, is essentially the same as a good single action auto. None, save the ME, will ever notice a difference.
