Reason being is cocking the hammer with the firing hand does chanhe your grip. What you do smoothly in a stress free environmemt is extremely difficult if not impossible to do under life and death stress.
Its pithy to say that and if you havent been in a position where someone is doing their level best from 6feet away or less to kill you its hard to convey the difference.
Cocking a hammer with the off hand is actually thecorrect way to do it.
Anyway you can do what you want its your life your putting at risk training with a flawed method. Long asyour not teaching anyone else to do it its just yourself your risking and thats your business.
