I run the slide b/c if I pick up an unfamiliar firearm (in a firefight) I won’t have to look for and find a little slide release and then use a fine motor skill to chamber a round. I’ve also heard a slide lock can ware out over time and then your gun won’t lock open on the last round. With my personal gun I rarely ever use it b/c seating a mag releases the slide!

I utilize the slide lock method because I find it to be easier and quicker to release it with my “strong hand” thumb, than to rack the slide, but I have done it both ways.
