    I slightly misdescribed the function of the double-action revolver. During the trigger pull, the hammer is pulled back and the cylinder rotated one position to the right, and at the end of the pull the hammer falls on the chamber firing the round in it (if any, a chamber can be empty). Pull the trigger again, the same thing will happen again. Hammer comes back, cylinder advances, hammer falls.

    It's still only marginally slower than a semi-automatic pistol, with the main difference being in ammo capacity, as I said.
