    I'm afraid I'm having trouble understanding. Are you talking about manually placing a single round in the chamber, through the ejection port, then releasing the slide (on the chambered round), then inserting the magazine? Does anyone actually do this?

    With guns that I keep with a round chambered, I always insert the mag, rack the slide to chamber the top round, then remove and top off the magazine, and re-insert it. I assumed everyone did it this way, what cause would anyone have to ever release the slide on top of a chambered round?

    cls - yes there are folks who do that!

    Why is maybe harder to see unless they think they are being ''gentler'' on the gun. I have heard that said. I think we all here follow what we might justifiably call ''std practice''

    Ignorance. Not the malicious kind, just the "I really didn't know" kind. A friend once loaded a round that way in my Commander. I politely corrected him because he really didn't know. Personally I have no problems loading guns with external extractors this way. Internal extractors aren't so forgiving.

    Seems to me like a practice like that would increase the risk of an ND, if the firing pin channel was not adequately cleaned and the pin got stuck up and slightly protruded. (i.e. SLAM-FIRE, a rather frightening proposition)
