Welcome and congrats on you new purchase!!!

The DS stands for 'decocking safety" and as for ammo I have been shooting Federal Champion (in a Ruger since my 24/7 isnt here yet) and it seem to be fairly accurate and pretty clean. It runs about the same price as the blazer and you can usually pick up a case of 1000 off gunbroker for around $200.

Welcome to TaurusArmed.net, the friendliest handgun forum on the Internet!

Your 24/7 Pro DS is one of the finest lines of handguns that Taurus makes, in my humble opinion.

The "double strike" would be the DA/SA

hmm I mean Duel strike. referring to the second strike capability of the 24/7 pro. I just caught myself thinking it again when looking at the topic header. duel strike.. bah, guess I gotta re-learn that. But its not called duel its called Second strike capability. so I guess if that's what the designation was referring to, the muzzle of our Taurus would read 24/7 pro SS, I don't know how comfortable I'd feel carrying something with SS stamped on the muzzle.

well actually the "PRO" means its a single action/ double action-- Not Da/Sa as the main function of the wepaon is single action.
the DS stands for decocker safety, the decocker is the means in which you can place the weapon in double action mode for the first shot.
if you want the weapon to be a single action first shot then either place the safety on (no decock) or do not use the safety or decocker, this of course after placing a round in the chamber.
as for msot accurate ammo?? depends on the gun and the shooter.
cleanest??
generally a premium ammunition whether hollow point or FMj, the dirtiest I think will be the Winchester White Box or at least i haven't found any dirtier, but hey solvent and elbow grease takes care of those problems.
