You take someone shooting. The only thing they know about revolvers is what they've seen in the movies, where revolvers are cocked. So, it doesn't even occur to you to they might not even know
to shoot DA, and in the blink of an eye they manage to somehow get it cocked.
Or...you're not home when your spouse hears a knock in the night. She grabs your bobbed HD revolver from the nightstand, and, under stress, immediately manages to get it cocked.

Is your M36 stock? IOW, has it ever had an action job (by a pro)? If there's resistance in the hammer travel, it'll be even more evident once it gets bobbed. IMHO, it's a good idea to bob a hammer as part of a good action job.
