Tap Forward

I have been unreliably informed that the tap forward is no longer carried out with the back of the hand ala Brue Lee karate chop type of thing but with the thumb of the left hand.

Can anyone confirm this?

I can find no mention of it it the 2009 Pam5. It seems to me that it may cause a 'stayed' thumb if indeed there is an obstruction to prevent the bolt locking home.

How very true!

I didn't think it had changed, like I said an unreliable source.
