If your finger is on the trigger, it might.

No finger on trigger, just sliding it forward.

No, it won't fire.

But it is not a good idea to put a round into the chamber and drop the slide. Load the chamber by inserting a full magazine and cycling the slide. It is much easier on the extractor.

You WILL eventually damage the extractor by "Force Feeding" the gun. When a round is loaded from the magazine, it slides up into position on the breech block and "into" the extractor. By letting the slide close on a chambered round the extractor must open up to an unnatural position and WILL break eventually.
