I could be wrong.
If I like decock a revolver. I would do it before I insert the cylinder to firing position.

When the cylinder is loaded and have the hammer cocked you can't eject it otherwise this whole debate would be null and void.

IMHO what to do

Revolver: if it is loaded and the hammer is back and u want to de-cock please point the barrel in a safe direction aka down range keep your fingers away from the trigger until you have a firm grip on the firearm and your thumb can rest on the side of the hammer to ease it down slowly.

Semi-auto: chamber a round and hit the de-cocker.

Guns should always be pointed in a safe direction no matter what your doing
