Yep, agree...but you have to go through that dog-gone awful first DA trigger pull to get there. You could take a nap before that first shot breaks on some DS/SA guns (the ones without any modifications, mostly).
Then you have to remember to decock when you are done, or that nice SA trigger bites you in the...leg...more easily.
I fully disagree with 'dog awful' - but I do agree if you don't put in the work, you'll never get close to even doing okay with it. I find the DA shot to be more accurate than the SA shot, as odd as that may seem. And quite a joy to use in dry-fire, vs. a striker where I need to run the slide all the time to reset things.
I also disagree with the decocking sentiment - a cocked traditional double action pistol is no worse than a fully cocked striker system (Sig P320, S&W MP, XD series for examples). Combine that with thumbing the hammer, and you prevent the problem from occurring if there's an obstruction. Decocked - hammer down, thumb with light pressure = stupid amounts of trigger pressure to drop hammer. Cocked - thumb with light pressure prevents the hammer from hitting the firing pin. 1 manual of arms gives you the "somethings wrong" feeling and a double check against a boom happening when you don't want it too. The SA is nothing like a 1911 trigger - Sigs can get close if you're shooting to the reset with the SRT sear, but once your finger leaves the trigger, there's a ton of take up. Non-SRT sears are never close to 1911's, but neither system really creeps up as 'slow' compared to a striker - if you do the work.
Don't look at it as two trigger pulls - look at it like a long trigger pull and a really, really short reset.

What kind of "gadget"?
Use Google search terms "the gadget glock device" and you'll get a lot of pertinent hits.
I do not see this as a hardware issue.
I see this purely as a software issue.
The problem with relegating this to a hardware concern is the inherent danger of thinking that with X or Y gun, I'm either exempt from Glock-Legging myself or that it's harder for me to Glock-Leg myself. This simply breeds complacency.
Understand that the re-holster stroke always
carries inherent risk. Be aware of your muzzle. Be aware of your trigger finger placement. Be aware of your holster (including its physical condition) and anything (including external debris) that may have gotten into the holster or may be blocking its mouth and may thus interact with the trigger.
It is fully a software issue. I installed the gadget for to standardize as much of my manual of arms as possible between hammer and striker guns, with a strong preference towards hammers.
