Been doing this for my 18+ years in LE.

My primary duty carry is a Sig P220, so I'm always putting my thumb on the hammer when reholstering.

Even when training and shooting with non-DA/SA pistols, like my GLock 19 or 26, I still put my thumb on the back of the slide.

As demonstrated in the video, if your thumb in pressed against the hammer or back of the slide, nothing bad will happen.

This is the same thing taught about being able to grab onto an adversaries pistol in a defensive maneuver. Yes, they may be able to fire that first shot, but if you are grasping the slide, is won't cycle or blow your hand off. Hopefully you avoid that first round and take care of the situation.
