    FWIW, on my G20, the slide slams home every single time I reload.

    I bought one a while back, and find that I don't need it when actually shooting. What say ye...

    Handy for some things... mostly not needed, gets caught on occasion if you're carrying concealed

    Handy when you have something in your off hand...flashlight, etc.
    I also like it for bowling pin runs.
    The slide does not close always on slam reload.
    Really.
    :supergrin:

    I'm sure Murphy told you that, too... :whistling: I'm sure my number will be up soon enough, but I won't forget to drop my thumb... :supergrin:

    I never close the slide with the release but I can see it would be helpful if something happened to your other hand and had to use just one.

    are you serious?

    Ive got three glocks and sometimes the slide slams on a reload, and sometimes it doesnt.

    they call it a 'feature', i believe.
