Sig p238 assembly- safest next step?
So, I am a new shooter and have a brand new sig sauer p238. I have disassembled and reassembled a couple times. Was trying again yesterday and had lots of trouble when trying to reassemble- the barrel kept coming back with the slide and I couldn't get the slide release lever seated back in properly. Finally figured out that's what the problem was and managed to get it together. Still can't figure out how I did it so easily the first time!! I was always mindful of the ejector and am hoping I didn't screw that up by pushing it down too far.
Question is, should I just go shoot it now or is there a safer way to determine that I did indeed get it back together ok? Just a little worried since I re-assembled it wrong so many times! I have re-inserted the magazine, but have not loaded it since.
Thanks in advance.

The manual should have some function checks listed, right?
