Thanks Don but he left us 11 years ago.

He was my hero and I didn't tell him that enough times!

I know the feeling.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams

I've seen this mentioned more than once so I'll add it here.

If you're trying to drop the slide with an empty mag in place - it will take extra pressure on the slide release. This is normal as the mag follower is exerting upward pressure on the slide release...
