Cleaned the thing thoroughly, then followed the directions on the can

So far, no chipping, cracking, or flaking.
Was it a special type of paint they make?

whatever you use to do it, preparation is the key in any type of paintjob, be it a slide for a pistol or a car or a house. you need to properly prepare the surface and make absolutely sure it's clean prior to painting or coating.

Nope. Went to WallyWorld. Found the color I wanted, and did the rest.

Multiple light coats is better than few heavy coats.

The key to any spraying of any paint is patience.

Keep reminding yourself when you see missed spots that you will get that on the next coat. Don't try to fix a bad spot by spraying more on it. That never works.

use something that is made to hold up to abuse, properly prepare the surface, clean very well, then clean it some more. follow all directions on whatever product you decide to use to the letter. also use a product made for the material you want to paint. another option would to be, have the slide powder coated in the color of your choice. now stuff is tough and would probably hold up. the only concern i have is the temperature used to bake it on the slide. would it be too much and cause it to lose it's heat treating? because if i remember, the parts are baked at around 400 degrees. hopefully someone with more experiance can shed some light on this. personally i have done some powder coating, just not on firearm parts.
