When I teach CC classes, I often am teaching people who have little experience with handguns. When racking the slide, or inserting a new mag, I have had to start saying "slap that mag in like it owes you money," or "don't baby that slide; yank it back like you're trying to rip if off the frame and let it slam home; it's not a toy and it won't break. ...Do it like it owes you money."
- Operator being nice
And, still, people try to gently ease the slide forward into battery.
Peace favor your sword,
