    Will a Glock discharge if is there is a round already in the chamber when you put the slide forward?

    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.
