AFAIK there are only two types of actions in SAA's: The Colt clone with the 4 clicks, and the Ruger which uses a transfer bar. By starting your Colt off with the hammer at the first notch it should be safer, but I can see where that would give hand judges a fit, and I seriously doubt it would give the shooter any advantage. Now, should a meteor fall from space and hit the hammer of your Colt, sitting on that first notch should prevent the gun from accidently firing.

Per the 7th Edition Gunslingers Guidelines "Hammer down is defined as either fully down against the frame or on the safety notch, which is the first notch in Colt Clone actions."
So the starting position for Colt or Colt clone guns is now not on the frame? Advantage or not?
