When cocking the pistol with the safety engaged, the slide catches and doesn't go all the way into its normal rested position easily. It even seems to be hitting something and causing wear damage. If the safety is off, everything is fine. I am fairly new to handling pistols, and was curious if this is normal. I bought it from an old friend who said they shot 50 rounds thought it with no issues. I have not fired it yet. Please forgive my noobiness.
