I figure on that scenario, it would be nice to clock that hammer. The spurless have notches and I donít find it that difficult. If I donít have time for it, Iím flying DA anyway.
I find it to be very easy to catch a half-pulled bobbed hammer and cock it, when dry-firing and even at the range from time to time. In an adrenaline-fueled, stressful situation though, I could see it being a much harder thing to do, and therefore I always practice shooting my first shot DAO.

The only gun I have ever missed catching the hammer on in this way is my late-production 457 with a very smooth trigger. It only happened once while dry-firing at home, and was a good lesson on how easily this technique can go wrong.
