ST --- Single [non-selective] Trigger

ST - Single [non-selective] Trigger - Single triggers are better than double triggers because with the trigger always in a constant position one does not even have to consider changing one's hand position and because there is one less thing to think about when concentrating on the target. A single trigger is usually easier for people used to pump, semi-automatic and bolt-action guns. A single trigger provides more clearance for a gloved finger than a double trigger. A plain single trigger is simpler and usually more reliable than a selective single trigger.

To accommodate the involuntary pull, single triggers are generally built on either the mechanical (like the Boss) or the inertia principle (like the Browning Superposed and the Perazzi).
