You could be right but I have practice this hundreds of times with several guns I own and never had a problem. My sr, m&p, glock, and hk all do this. My buddy has a m&p9c that had a really tight slide release that we couldn't make close when slamming the mags in. He actually sent his gun back to smith because the slide release was so tight you could barely release it. You know some people prefer to use the release lever. When it came back his slide release was a lot easier to engage and when mags pushed in with a little authority it loaded flawlessly. I never use a slide release and always pull and release the slide. And I don't carry extra mags so no reloads are necessary as I carry two guns. I just thought this was pretty cool. If your guns slide release is very hard to engage chances are this wont happen but if it's easy then I'm sure any auto loader will do this if mags are inserted hard enough. I'm not suggesting anyone do this. Just however you choose practice until you can get her done 100 percent of the time. If this is a design flaw it's not with just your gun, it's with all auto loader handguns. Some just do this easier than others
