for reliable feeding from being in slide-lock. What a crock. If the makers/designers have not built enough slide-movement into the gun for such feed reliability, they can keep their gun and my wife will keep her money

Seems to be the fashionable thing nowadays. I can kind of see the attraction of training new guys that way since it pretty much duplicates malfunction manipulation, but still not going to adopt it myself. I've been hitting the slide release/stop with my thumb for so long it's actually slower for me to do the "overhand" slide manipulation on a simple reload.

of course it's slower. Sheesh, it's a LOT slower and a lot more fumbleprone, too.

Slingshot loading is being taught by a lot of PD's now for initially loading a round in the chamber, not for reloads, either tactical or emergency. Female and small statured Males with less strength seem to find it the easiest method. I don't.

the INSTANT the new mag slams home, you can drop the slide stop and start shooting. Having to grab the slide and "slingshot" it is a waste of at least 1/2 second, in which you and your enemies can (and for you, SHOULD) have fired 3 shots. For most people, it's more like a full second. Really, really lame design that requires that.

Never had trouble running 1911's, Sigs or Glocks and even Ruger P series for that matter using the slide lock/release.

you used to get penalized (as you should) for shooting to slide-lock. Now the dumbass IDPA matches REQUIRE you to do so.! :-)
