Statements like these ^^ are the only "condescending garbage" in this thread. This might come as a surprise to you but you're not the only guy here who knows how to safely decock a revolver. But doing as you suggest and playing around with a loaded handgun, cocking and decocking as you draw, for no real reason, is both unsafe and just plain out stupid. It's just begging for an accident to happen. And recommending such reckless and unsafe practices to others, some of who don't know any better, on a public forum is equally stupid.
