This is a discussion on Pf9 slide release lever, very hard to push within the General Firearm Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; I never use a slide release button, on any gun. It's push the slide back very slightly and release it.... done....

The simple solution for the Glocks was to install an extended slide stop. This gives the user more surface area for the thumb to press downward on, thus making it easier.
I haven't found one for the Keltec, yet. If you can find one, that will most likely solve your problem.

I learned to release the slide on autoloaders by pulling back on the slide and releasing. That's just how I learned, and it works on all makes and models.

Using slide Stop, using sling shot; either works. It you're not supposed to press the slide lock(stop, catch, etc.), why does it have a tab sticking out instead of being total concealed so one's thumb won't inadvertantly activate it? Glock itself says either way. Whatever works best for you. It's another one of those endless, senseless arguments like storing mags full or empty, one in the chamber or not.
Do what works best for you and what you have confidence in. Only you need to account for it.

For all who say the two handed (i.e. slingshot) operation of the slide is the way to go; I agree it is the best option under normal circumstances. But I do have a question. How does one release the slide if one hand becomes temporarly or permanently disabled?
