    Support thumb is the better technique, but, old habits die hard.

    Depends.
    If holding the revolver one handed, I use that thumb to do that job (L or R handed).
    Shooting two handed, I use the support side thumb.
    I mostly shoot double-action revolvers exclusively double-action though.

    I fired 100 rounds in the 686 this afternoon. Support hand thumb cocking it was.
