"when loading the weapon, load from the magazine and do not drop the round directly into the chamber." So what's the difference if you drop a round into a revolver cylinder vs a pistol barrel? Also, why would it make a difference if the round is dropped in or rammed in from the pistol slide?
That's generalizing from a rule that's true for most (but not all) autoloaders.

My Ruger P90's manual, for instalnce, specifically recommends dropping a round in the chamber for single loading.
