If you’re in a high stress situation, like grabbing your gun in the middle of the night because you think there is an intruder in your house to harm you, you may experience an adrenalin dump. This causes your heart to speed up and blood is pulled from extremities and sent to the larger muscles. This detracts from your fine motor control and ability to do some things with your hands… like safely de-cock a revolver.

There are indeed many safety features on modern revolvers. Why do something which is unnecessary and may lead to a problem?

Exactly... no advantage and tons of potential downside.

Do as you train, consistency is a lifesaver using economy of motion for every drill.
