    Without a decocker on our SP-01 Shadow we’ve only experienced it in SA but I’ve heard great things about the SAO variants. I almost bought one from a fellow Addict, as a matter of fact.

    Guns that are DA/SA require more trigger travel so that it can reset after firing. This is due to a part called a disconnector. Shadow has a "short reset" disconnector, but the SAO does away with the disconnector entirely, so total trigger travel can be quite short and reset is very quick. Shoot one if you ever get the chance. Also, keep an eye out for an original Tactical Sport...extremely accurate. Unfortunately, the SAO varieties may not be legal in as many USPSA/IDPA classes as the DA/SA versions, but they should be fine for steel games.
