That is

Hi Steph
Taht is the action on a pistol. A single you must physically cock the hammer and then pull the trigger. On a Double action you just pull the trigger and no need to cock. Much faster in an emergency situation..

Single and Double

This is what i know. A single action is where you pull the hammer back after each shot. Like my Colt Single Action Army also known as the Peace Maker. A double Action is where there is no need to pull the hammer back after each shot. Like my wifes Kahr Model P40.

well

a single wide is to small I suggest a double wide trailer.

It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.- Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)
