That's what I do with mine when I'm practicing. It's makes it a whole lot easier when you're just shooting at the range though and you wanna just use one hand when the mag is empty. I am contemplating the extended also. I am keeping an eye on this thread :rock:Just curious, are you trying to activate the slide release with your shooting hand?
If you're shooting w/ a two-hand hold, why not just use your support hand's thumb?
Yep, that's what I have read also.You should not let the slide slam into battery on an empty chamber. It's bad for the barrel hood and the breech face. When you are firing the pistol you will get your thumb under the extended slide stop and cause a premature slide lock. But to each their own.
