this was a conversation I had with a few buddies. Ok so heres the scenario your gun slide is locked open you shove in a full mag and...... do you hit the slide release button or pull back on the slide and let it go? some of the guys say by hitting the release button you can damage the spring and some of the guys said thats what the button is for and some said either way is fine one way isnt better then the other. we all but a few own at least one XD. So I turn to the forum what do you do and why?
