    I got used to doing it that way with my side locks MLs. They all have a fly that keeps the sear from going into the half cock when tripped.
    I pull them back then ease them forward until I am sure the sear has fully engaged the half cock notch.

    People say money can't buy happiness But it can buy me a Marlin and ammo to shoot in it, dies, powder bullets...

    I can say that I've always done it this way also. I can't really say why except that it is just easier to do it this way. I admit it's not that easy to find half cock when going from full cock so I guess that's why I've always done it from firing pin back.
